Wiring a 4 wire D-104 to a CPI 2000 cb base

I hope you enjoy your 2 CPI 2000's as much as I enjoy my 2. Arguably, the best "legal" FCC type accepted CB ever made and that includes Browning, Tram, Stoner, ARF, SBE, Uniden (Although I do love the UPD-858 deluxe SSB chassis), etc.

Having said that, they are pushing 45 years old and even though only the best available components were used in them, the E Caps should be replaced. It is a PITA because they use a double sided circuit board, but use some quality low ESR caps (Panasonic, Nichicon, etc.) and the radio will still be working 40 years from now.

Good Luck.
I too have heard they are the best of the best. I'm sure I will enjoy them and keep them going by changing the E Caps....Thanks again for all the info...

    Ham radio operators (VHF/UHF) should pay attention to enhanced radio propagation paths throughout the middle latitudes and equatorial region, a common occurrence following such events. :coffee: (y)

    Had "Aurora" propagation on CW/SSB on 6m last evening. (300-700m range here) The 2m guys had lots of Ducting/TROPO between the East Coast and Gulf Coast op's, even early today.

    good morning to all :)
