"Again Please View The Pictures!"....THANKS FOR LOOKING!!! This is the Cobra 139 XLR. This was Cobra's "middle of the road" AM/SSB base station. This was the 40 channel version of the popular 23 channel Cobra 139. Features included Volume, Squelch, R.F. and Mike Gain controls, and a new FCC mandated receive-only Clarifier. Also included were 2 large meters, with modulation and SWR measuring capability, as well as the standard S/R.F. functions. Rounding out the list of features was a switchable ANL/NB, and a P.A. function. While physically resembling the older 23 channel radio, electrically they were nothing alike. This radio was a "first generation" 40 channel radio, coming out in late 1977 or '78. As such, this radio, or more accurately the chassis in the radio, (The Uniden uPD858 PLL) was one of my all time favorites for capabilities and modifications. PLL mods could net over 200 channels out of this PLL and VCO combination. The mic preamp circuitry had speech compression, and audio filters which could be tailored to suit individual tastes. SSB power out could reach 20+ watts. The clarifier could be unlocked and easily made to move up and down 5 Khz, to fill in any gaps in coverage. Performance wise, this radio faired pretty well. Adjacent channel rejection was fairly good, as were most 40 channel designs. Transmit audio was great, the radio has enough audio gain that an amplified mike was not always necessary.
