    Can I wire the spot between 22 and 23 for 22a ? Any channel mods would be appreciated . I’m just cleaning switches at this point. Sounds like I may be capacitor swapping. Quite an old cb!

    That frequency is now channel 24, 27.235 MHz.

    On some radios a simple SPST switch wired around the channel selector would do the trick. Not all radios were the same in this way.

    Don't have any specific info on file here.

    Digital block was the only page I didnt print from cb tricks. Thanks but after going through it I am sure I dont have enough education yet to decipher the code. Also I opened the set and it looks someone previous turned every screw. waiting on a photofact to do some voltage checks. This $50 cb may get expensive. this dream of fourty channels plus sideband may be only a dream.

    go over to cbtricks and look at the secret cb book #4 pages 5and 6. it shows a channel mod for the stalker 0ne radio which is the same as the stalker two you have. it may show you what you are wanting to know.

    I may take you up on that. I found out yesterday that someone turned every screw in that radio.
    I don’t have the test eq to do a complete alignment on it. I’m gonna go out in the mobile and actually see it it transmits and recurved at a distance.

    at least cbtricks has the service manual for that radio if you can find equipment to adjust all the items some one turned . as old as the radio is you sure will need to replace all the electrolytic caps in it to make it work as it should. the 40 channel I have it would not TX or RX properly and after the recap it all started working as it should. it is a nice talking radio.. a friend of mine borrowed it to take a trip and he offered me 200.00 for it he liked it so much.

    We’ll get her done. I’m putting up a serio ground plane today . Gonna start with 20 foot of mast. I’m on a hill and very prone to lightning.
    But your right I got my work cut out for me. I’ll probably borrow a fluke with scope functions and do my best with that.
