The Uniden madison, Uniden Washington, and Cobra 2000 were never intended to be heavy swingers. Exotic mods and final swaps are not suggested with any of these radios. Volting finals in radios is not a good idea either unless maybe you have a newer mosfet powered radio. They love higher voltage levels.

Yeah. Radios that have mods that benefit AM does so at the cost of SSB. Now, if you value SSB; then any of these mods are less than worthless. If you really must have a real swingin' AM rig; then why not have a dedicated Cobra 25LTD? Not as tho you can't afford one - right?

I sometimes talk to guys on SSB that had their radios modded for AM modulation, and it sounds like real junk on SSB! Can't have both - apparently . . .

Just do my asymmetric modulation mod that's buried in the modifications page. It'll work fine. Do not volt the final, it's not necessary with my mod. Make sure all modulation limiters are intact, and upgrade the AM pass regulator to a TIP41C, follow the instructions, and it'll sound great.


~Cheers~

thank you exit 13 and Audioshockwave for pinning it to the top. I never knew you called it an asymetric mod. I forgot about this post since it was back in 2014 you posted it..
just set here and reread it from start to finish so I would know what was totally in it.
thanks
