As many of you know I ran a test between a 148 (with the power turned down to match the output of my petrusse pacific 160 similar board to the concorde 11)The 148 worked better on usb and fm. That said, Just because one radio is better than another that doesn't make the cybernet RUBBISH. The slowest f1 cars can be 0ver 2 seconds off the pace,but they'll leave your ford/subaru etc for dead. I've gotten overseas copies with my pacific. Get your jumbo to Cubwolf or BS and then it will be running the best it can, then run it. I love my pacific even though my delta is in a different league. I've held copies on fm with a station using a jumbo on Anglesey. That's got to be over 70 miles from me. I don't think that's rubbish.

The Jumbo is no better than theConcorde, which is no better than the Multimode,or any of the other crap that came from the Cybernet stable.

The Jumbo is a great Cb radio, I cant fault them, Works well, looks the biz too!!! Ok they are not the best when it come to working DX, but if you wanna work Dx buy a HF radio. Thumbs up for the old Cybernet chassis!! Big up the Leicester massive :lol:

Hi all I have a MK1 Jumbo PTMB059COX with sub board PTOS006AOX. There was an eprom & it went wrong so i removed it & put it back to standard. With a lot of perseverance I eventually got the 6 PLL02 programming connections right pin 10 to 15 PLL02 & the channel switch common.

It works perfectly missing the 5 Alpha channels as it should & correctly stepping the odd channel spacing in between channels 22-26. I bought a UK 40 EPROM from spectrum & fitted it, but only so many of the channels are correct. I have been wondering if there is another way of wiring the channel selector to obtain the correct channels as it is now but will work correctly with the UK 40 EPROM. On the small channel board PTSW026COX there are connections P1 to P8 & PB which is the common connection & on the PLL sub board there are connections P1 to P6. Most match up P number to P number ect.

I would expect if the channel switch is working correctly with the PLL02 I would have thought it would program the EPROM correctly too. BTW I returned the EPROM for test & was sent back reported OK. I have done a lot of work on this Radio in the past almost 8 Years making Her sound great on FM/SSB & other improvements. I have modded Her now with a 6 way band switch at the moment LO MID HI HI HI & I am waiting for 2 custom made Crystals from Quartslab both in the 9 MHZ range to give Triple Lo & Super LO giving 25.615-28.305. Anyone know if there is a different way of wiring as I would be most grateful. Info or Images if possible. Thanks 26DW429 David.

That's 3 topics you've posted the same query in now.

There aren't many people on here at the moment due to holidays, being busy with work, being really drunk etc. (that leaves only about 5 of us left in total I reckon then lol), so just hang fire a day or two as I'm sure someone helpul and technically-minded (that rules me out then!) will be along to help out soon ;)
