    Coax help needed.

    I dont know if this matters but i have great receive just as i always have, no change in that at all. Still hard to understand why. looks like if the coax is bad then my receive would have changed.

    95T tuning

    As far as the 95T goes. If you tune it WITH OUT doing all of the BS mods to it that 98% of the CB shops push then you wont hurt a thing. Mine was tuned by me over 8 years ago,40 watts max key,130 watts pep,limiter NOT removed and it worked great for me for years on both AM as well as SSB,as far...

    Cobra 200 GTL Plastic Wrapped Factory Boxed 10 Meter SSB AM Radio 200 Watts

    These things were being sold for $175 a few years ago by a electronics supply store in Elkin NC. No one would buy em so they let em go for what they could get out of them. Even Cobra stoped trying to repair em,they would just send you your money back! $475 for it:lol:

    President JFK,Rare?

    I picked up a really nice one today for $95. I did not need another radio but i have never seen one before so i got it. While trying to find some info on it i ran across a you tube video about a JFK and the guy who posted it said that those radios were rare. Any truth to that?

    Base station upgrade help.

    You will not find a better base than the one you have now. I have had them all from Trams to Browning's,RCI's,Galaxy and many more. The Cobra 2000 is one of the very best radios you could ever hope to own. If you want monster audio and yet still be clean then find a nice Elkin Tube amp. They...

    Is a base station even possible for me? Need advice/wisdom, something....

    You got or get complaints because you were using a dirty over modulated radio. Get yourself another radio and MAKE SURE that the tech sets it up so that it does not have over 100% modulation,this means no mod kit/swing kits and no clipped limiters......i dont give a damn what he says about your...
