    I have a CPI 2000 base radio only, not the other pieces to go with it. I can’t use it, because the dead key keeps changing on it, and it must be bad, because all my friends who run trashy rgs with all kinds of toys and echo, say it sounds bad. But, the receive is incredible!!! It would be perfect if all I wanted to do is to watergate, but I don’t know how to set it up s I could listen only, while transmitting on one of my other radios, without feeding back and problems, so it sits under a clear plastic cover, staring back at me. Each time I get the bug to fire it up again to listen, it just makes me sick. It has the most incredible receive. The best and most well known CB tech in my area won’t touch it, and as many of you know, a CB tech of just any caliber could wreck this thing in short order. I stumbled onto this site, and wondered if anyone might bed able to refer me to a proper service tech for one of these. I’d like to eventually acquire the other companion pieces to this rig. I’m told this one was a prototype that the company added a plug-in freq counter to, which plugs directly into the bottom of the radio. I have that also, and it works fine. Apparently, I just can’t transmit clearly with it. I had the mic plug wired 4 pin Cobra, as most of my other rigs have been, so most all of my mics will interchange. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all, and Merry Christmas!

      Hi Bill, thanks for the CPI Radio related comment. I also have a few of these unique and awesome CB radios. Unfortunately they all have problems mainly in the TX area as well. This is not to say there is any reason to think poorly of them as they are near 40 years old now and have probably transmitted many fine signals into the ether. I have all the service diagrams which I am going to put up on the CQDX11.com website soon. They are different but a decent tech should be able to solve your problems as they TX just as well as you know they RX! Regards, Greg, AX05
