Customer Question
Hello dear Pearl ! ...

Hello dear Pearl !

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your product?

Hello dear Pearl. I have a cobra 148gtl-ex that has no Tx or Rx. Where can I get the schematic diagrams for this unit. The main board reference is "EPT360012B".I tried a few web sites but no luck. Can you help me? Thank you so much. Carlos " Customer' from Portugal

Technician's Assistant: The Technician will be able to walk you through that. What have you tried so far?

I know there was a short between "D25" and ground caused by a piece of wire. I know there is no voltage on final transistors. I need to recap the unit even I did not find anything wrong with the capacitors in plain site but the radio is about 30 yrs old.Thank you

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

I think that is all for now . Thanks
