I inherited a cobra 142GTL that has sat for 20 years. Right off the bat I noticed that its volume is not as loud as the other one I own and currently in use. It also has very poor receive, as in I cant hear anyone unless its my other radio in the other room. It does have static, so it's not like a squelch problem. Has excellent transmit. Its like, have you ever had a cb turned on but no antenna hooked up, but when you hook the antenna up it gets louder and the static changes? This radio don't have that. It sounds the same hiss, with or without an antenna hooked up. Like it's not getting a signal I had a cap kit that I was going to use for a different radio, but I used it for this one hoping to shotgun the issue, but no dice. Caps all replaced but the issue remains. I was thinking there was some sort of amplifier issue on the receive side. I do have a washington that I can rob parts off of. Does anyone have any clues on where I should look first? I can hear my wife talking to me on it from the driveway but as soon as she gets down the street its gone.
