142GTL radio question

You'd have to look inside to see. The 142GTL can be "frequency expanded" by adding various switches to the PLL chip pins. Do a google search for 142GTL Channel Expansion mods and you will probably find the info.

Other than that, depending on who owned the radio, it could be switches for roger beeps, and other "noise" toys too... But I would say most likely, channel expansion. Cobra 142GTL is a fantastic 11 meter base station... I would not sell mine for anything.

Nice looking radio. I hope whoever got it made a "best offer". $200 with a stock mic is a bit much. But I love mine and would not sell it for $200.(y)

I'd say the group of 4 is for extra channels and a 10kc mod, the other one is for the Flux Capacitor. Be careful, if you go over channel 87 it'll open a worm hole and you'll be transported to another dimension! :w00t:

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
