    You need a single final radio.

    Get a good cobra 29 or galaxy 33,44, or 55v, the older models and be done, a dual final radio is more for use with a high drive amp.

    So I just went to cbtricks and pulled up the service manual for the superstar158edx.... and..... It has an internal adjustment for AM and SSB rf output. So why wouldnt i be able to have my technician adjust it accordingly to not overdrive the 667.....:pop:

    Set the internal limits and put the cover back on,
    you may have to play with it just a bit but 1 or 2 in for dead key and let the peaks swing up to about 14/16 watts.

    You really do not need a lot with that built in driver.
    Put a big fan on it, damn things run hot if you do not.
    You must remember that it is still just a 500 with a driver.

    Jeff I know the damn thing is cranking out some power too. I used my friends 979 and keyed it on AM with a 2watt deadkey swinging 10-15watts for about 5 minutes of shooting skip, the lower part of my whip on the Wilson 1k mag was quite warm and the box definitely needs a fan. But I was getting people back to me which was a first for me on AM I can't wait to bring it neat the beach and shoot skip. heck maybe ill be able to key on a local

    Never heard of a Galaxy 30. Do you have a link for it?

    CB Tricks has no listing -anywhere- for that radio.
    Mystery to me; who made it?

    It's about the size of a pack of smokes, they are out of production but had a single 1969 final in them, sometimes a 2312.

    I've seen a few at local hamfests in the past few years. Almost bought one, but passed on 'em. I figured it'd be fried. They are neat looking though.

    driver do you think it will work given the circumstances? .5-1 watt input should do it right?

    The more I think about what you are trying to do it could work. Even if you could get it to hit 8-10 watts peak that would be enough for the 667. The input dead key to the 667 would be the tricky part.

    For a test run the radio into the Galaxy 30 into a watt meter. Anything that can get you a 1-2 watt dead key and 8-20 watts peak will be great.

    Nice. Just can't play much on cb anymore. It's horrible down here on LI. Man-o-war is about it 'locally'.....more or less....on AM. SSB is like ch 19 used to be-just plain ugly. I've described my pet peeves here before ;) including the tech & genl 11m SSBers who just dont get 'skip', e skip or f layer. They incessantly complain that they cant talk local, are worse then 5150 & foe tee foe foe tee foe et al, THEN go to 28.385 & complain they have skip on 10m....AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Sorry. Its 6m ssb for me, or i go where only extras can go. Anyway, not much more in 11m equipt left, the big tubes are gone & my 100w 706mk2g is it for the mobile. Just doesnt pay to aggravate myself anymore. Oh well. Boss can hear me, i'll hafta jump in on the bowl some afternoon....& talk to his 5 pill.....DRIVER ;)
    Thanks for the update!
