Re: Clarifier wiring question

No the trimmer is still there. Ok so there is no easy way to wire it to work? I thought maybe a wire or a jumper on the clarifier was not hooked up.

Clarifier wiring question

I have a Cobra 2010 GTL WX that has the clarifier unlocked. The Fine and Coarse were working fine until I had the radio in for maintenance. Had a recap done and a realignment done. When I got the radio back, the coarse clarifier works fine but the fine doesn't do anything. I called the tech to talk ...

Re: Cobra 2010 GTL WX P/S Trransformer Replacement

Thanks for the replies. I will give rfparts and see what they say. Sonoma, where did you see the transformers for sale? I checked the For Sale Adds and didn't not see any. I have seen a few on eBay but they are for different radios. Not sure if they will put out enough power.

Cobra 2010 GTL WX P/S Trransformer Replacement

Hi Guys, I need to replace the P/S Transformer in my Cobra 2010 GTL WX. This is the same radio internally as the Cobra 2000 GTL, but has a new look.

Calibrating Modulation Meter on Dosy TFC-3001-S

Does anyone know which pot calibrates the MOD meter in the DOSY TFC-3001-S? Any radio I hook up to it and set the meter pegs the mod meter. Even a bone stock cobra 29LTD with no mods and a stock mic, has the meter hitting the end. The meter is set to each radio I hooked up with the same results. Jus...

Re: Odd Clarifier issue.

Hello DXer, I would leave it alone, it makes your radio unique. I don't know anyone with the 2010GTL to see if they came that way or not. 3's Greg It never used to be this way. I took the radio to the shop to get it realigned because it was sitting in my garage for a few years after I moved to my n...

Odd Clarifier issue.

Hi All, My course knob works as it is supposed to. If I turn it clockwise, it goes up in frequency. If I turn it counter clockwise, it goes down in frequency. The fine knob is the odd one. When I turn the fine knob clockwise, the frequency goes down. When I turn the fine counter clockwise, the freq ...

Re: Galaxy DX88HL Irratic freq counter and no tx/rx

The board is mounted upside down in this chassis so when I take the top of the radio off I am looking at the bottom of the board. When you said with the radio facing you and taking the top off, did you mean the bottom of the chassis? There is no transistor on the bottom of the board. For clarificati...

Re: Cobra 2010 GTL WX issues and questions

Hi Greg, Thanks for the reply. Looks like I will need a tech to align the radio then. I was hoping this was something I could do myself but I dont have any trest equipment other than a watt meter. Since I have no shops in my area with techs, do you reccomend anyone on this site or even a shop I coul...
