Help Identifying Cobra 142 GTL Mods?

Post by bliynd » Saturday, 26 November 2016, 21:53 PM

Hello everyone, my first post here. I've been playing with various CB radios for a while but this is the first CB I've ever had that's been modded. Picked up at auction for 10 bucks. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what has been done to this and what the 5 switches do? Also added some yellow arrows in the pics to show circuits that have been cut (that I noticed) any help is much appreciated! If more pics are needed please let me know!! Thanks in advance!!

Hi bliynd,
New members aren't suppose to post pics until their initial time and post count so I had to remove the link, also obscuring a link to make it post is also against the forum rules, might want to read over the rules one more time. Not that being said I did check out the pics, very good BTW.

The set of 4 switches are a channel mod to get frequencies higher and lower than the original 40 channels, you can find a channel chart on CB Tricks or get a frequency counter (better idea). The single switch looks to be a power or swing mod, I think the removed and clipped components are part of that mod.
