    And so it begins - Cobra’s “New” Generation Surface Mount Technology

    This is an actual finished product. I was able to purchase 20 and now they’re gone. No classics, chromes or LX’s are to be had through cobra, at this point, to my knowledge. Cobra had them on Amazon for a brief period and they’re out.

    And so it begins - Cobra’s “New” Generation Surface Mount Technology

    Remember when you didn’t have to think much because you’d been inside a Cobra 29 13.7 thousand times? Hashtag “GoodTimes” Well, it’s still the same basic setup and, strangely, still no mosfet. Here’s a peak at the Cobra 29LX. Semantics? Mosfet conversion? Swing kits? It’ll be fun watching...

    Stryker SR-89MC

    Been forever since I’ve had one but the V2 version normally had sticker on the box. It was a round sticker and it seems like it had a big number 2 on it or something like that. It had a mosfet in it. The tricky thing is that Stryker mixed up the boxes or the labeling during the transition. I...

    Galaxy DX-99V2 Key Up Issues - key up and no key up

    I’ve recently had 3 99v2 radios keying up when they shouldn’t. Normally, it’s an issue of two legs on the mic board shorting. Recently, however, it has been an issue of the echo board pinching one of the wires that is soldered to the Band knob pot. These echo boards don’t have enough space and...

    Replacing Weller WESD51 - Recommendations for best soldering station

    Ok done deal. Ordered the 951-66. Almost went with the 203 dual iron but after all the $20/tips, it gets up there. Thanks for the input.

    Replacing Weller WESD51 - Recommendations for best soldering station

    I’m looking at the Hakko 951. Tips = Copper-iron chrome alloy. (?) Ive never had to know anything about tips. I’ve always just replaced my Weller tips with OEM tips and I think they’re stainless.

    Replacing Weller WESD51 - Recommendations for best soldering station

    I’ve used the Weller wes51 for about 10 years. This is my second and it’s time to replace it. I’d like to upgrade. I’ve replaced the iron a a few times and many tips. They don’t last. Recommendations for the best units under $300, please. Mostly through board components.

    Galaxy dx-55f High SWR & Warning Light

    ***REPAIRED*** C257 crushed (Oops-I don’t think I got the pic of c257 location in that graphic but it’s behind the swr board) This was strange. Adjusting the SWR board did nothing. The board and pot were fine. After removing the board, I could visually inspect the main board. C257 was crushed...

    Galaxy dx-55f High SWR & Warning Light

    Yes sir. I believe this is the 3rd new radio in the last month. It happens. I’ve never had to dink with the board. Does the VR calibrate the warning light or the meter itself? I suspect if it calibrates the meter, the light will take care of itself.
