Question about Cobra 148 GTL 120-Channels Base CB Radio
Posted by Anonymous on
This sounds like a problem with the MB3756 Regulator IC. It controls voltage regulation and TX/RX Switching. It is a common failure in these radios. Check voltages with schematic that can be found at

No audio out / low audio out....This is a constant problem with the COBRA 148 gtl....to get a good level of volume replace the
electro caps ...start around the two speaker wires and work back from there. I'm in the process of rebuilding a 148 gtl and have found caps that are leaky and dried out...after replacing nine the volume went up to a good level...now i need to fix the distortion
and background hash. Did you know that there are many posts
on FIXYA about this same problem I.E. great TX , great PA but poor , or no audio out. these sets have been made in sevetal countries...The sets made in Taiwan or China have poor quality
front panel pots (the carbon track is micro thin and simply wares through to the material the track is printed on) This has the same effect as removing a wire from a pot I.E. no audio. The good news is that 99% of parts in the radio are freely available and that includes the front panel controls. ONE WONDERS IF THE SET IS WORTH THE EFFORT !!!
CHEERS GUYS / GIRLS.
