    Default JohnnyBones Intro

    My name is Johnny and I have been in the citizens band hobby since 1985. I am interested in modifying my set up now. I ran a CB shop in Baltimore county back in 2001. I am interested in doing a mosfet upgrade to my Cobra 25 radio and would appreciate any information that any of your members would be able to supply me with. Also would aprreciate schematics on Cobra 25 or Uniden 66.

    First off welcome...

    Second....

    In my opinion a mosfet mod isnt worth the money spent for the watts gained...

    In other words you spend the money on the kit and the labor on doing the work to achieve a few more watts that aren't going to be noticed on the receiving end...

    You have to double your output to gain one S unit on the receivers set.

    Spend the money on a small amp or the RFX75 Mosfet final replacement...

    Is the RFX75 similar to the irf520 final?? This is all new technology, I am used to working with the 2sc1969's which are discontinued..

    The rfx75 is like a bolt on mosfet amplifier that replaces the stock finals in the radio.

    It promises 75-100 watts...
