    Default Cobra 19 Plus Mods

    God my hands on a 19+ for $0.99 for nostalgic purposes. This was my first base radio years ago which i transmitted off a POS mag mount antenna stuck to a cookie sheet hanging out my window.

    Now years later and with a little deeper pockets I have upgraded to a homebrew gutter antenna. Yes I transmit off a fuckin gutter and downspout! haha

    anyway since this was my first radio I wanted to have one here on the shelf. It works, TX & RX no problem. I opened it up (not a word capt. morgan)!! and did a little peaking.

    I got it going from 4w swinging 5 with 30% modulation to going 5w swinging 10 with a little over 100% modulation. i'm satisfied with this...right now anyway.

    my question is this: the only mods I found (besides the supertune which swaps the final with a 1969) is clipping D8 and turning RV4 for audio and power adjustments are playing with L11, L12, & L13. these L's are coils and not pots. I messed with spreading and closing them and I was only able to get a DK of 5 while whistling to 10w. This radio has a 2078 final--same as a 29.

    Should I be getting more out of this, and if so how? Also if there's any other mods out there I havent found I'd like to hear about them. Thanks a lot....Ice

    Ok I guess I don't have to keep looking for the other one.
    I peaked out the one I have but it was all experimental.
    I had mine doing like 10bird and around 50 peak
    Once I find it I'll let you know
    If it's not a Bot's built then it's junk and you should kill yourself.
    That is all......
