Cobra 2000gtl low modulation & receive

Post by cherrypicker » Monday, 03 January 2011, 1:59 AM

Just picked up a cobra 2000 gtl the other day. It has a few issues. The receive is good locally
But any stations the next town over I can't hear unless I turn
The volume all the way up. Local stations only give less than 1 S unit.
The modulation is very low, even with a D104 I have to have the mic right by my mouth
to be heard. The mic works fine on my other radios so that's not an issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also wattage is fine.

Do you know how long it was sitting around ? Maybe it needs a good cleaning in side . I would take a look see inside , one never know's. Also did you check all connections ? Good luck, Dirtydog

Yes, checked all connections. Also no static unless volume control is all the way up.

Thanks, I've seen his responses on here to other cobra 2000 problems & he seems to really know his stuff. I'll try to pm him.

Ok. A friend of mine is a local technician he aligned the radio & all is well. The previous owner did some mods & messed with final & driver bias. That's where the audio went. Once he aligned it she woke right up. Thanks 313 you made my day.
