cobra 29LTD chrome need help with receive
« on: February 26, 2019, 06:28:33 PM »
Another 29 bites the dust.

Customer brought in a Cobra 29LTD Chrome.
Radio does transmit and receive.
The receive is very noisy lots of static when people are talking.
When channel is silent from talking there are pulses of static in the audio.
Also the rf gain does not fully work
it will work a tad but when turned totally off the radio is still making static noise in receive.
I put a regular 29LTD classic beside it and receive is nice and steady and rf gain will turn receive
almost off to silent.
The radios are basically the same but there is a difference.
That is why I'm looking for a chrome 29LTD schamatic.

Any suggestions on the static riding in on the receive very erratic like a loose antenna connection.
I checked the board for cold solder joints. All look good.
Mic is ok /output ok/audio ok/ radio has builtin Talk back thats ok/

When I key up a radio close by it has the static noise with it. I keyed up a radio with a test plug no mice/audio should be dead carrier but this static is killing the radio and receive.
