When you say it receives?
Does that mean the needle moves? or can you hear the bench radio thru your speaker? Or can you hear people talking thru your speaker?
Sometimes your radio/needle will just pick up rf from the bench radio.
You'll need at least a DVM about $20 to get started.
There's a great article on this site, let me see if I can find the link.

methinks you forgot to look at the dates on this thread.

Switch Kit hasnt been on this forum in 6+ years.

nomad is still around but doesnt come here too often.

all the same, good advice is always welcome on the forum, but i doubt you'll get a reply from any of the OP's.

My cobra 25 litd classic made in the year 2000 has good strong receive that kinda sorta sounds on the edge of distortion or crunchy.
Do these 25,s share the same receiver circuit as the cobra 29 ?

Welcome! I believe that the 25 is essentially the same as a 29. A radio that old is probably ready to have it's capacitors replaced. I have a radio that needs caps so bad that it will make some funny noises as it warms up.

    10M BAND.....>28400 SSB .... Always give your full callsign. Listening is the key so be sure we call you before replying. 3Y0J will always listen up (using split) so it will be useless to call us on our transmission frequency.

    I like these guys already. :cool: Sounds to me like ROBO callers in ANY Mode will be ignored!!!!(y)

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
