Send it to Nick (Black Spirit) in South Wales - he'll sort it out (replaced the finals and tuned my Stalker 9 FDX - it's bang-on frequency and BBC quality R5 reports back almost every time).

Quick and cheap service - PM me if you want the contact info.

Cheers
Gary

Thanks for that gary i may well take you up on that if i cant find anyone local to do it.In the mean time i was trawling around cobraworkxshopz to find a mint hy-gain v 2795 dx so i decided to buy that as it is like new and they have performed some nice mods on the radio but it wasn't cheap told the wife 100 quid but it was more like 184 quid delivered Razz I will still get the other hy-gain sorted and spray the case then resell on eBay if i can list it as they are taking muti modes off at the mo

Hello guys,here is a list of the mods performed by cobraworxshopz which has brought this classic radio into the 21st century:-
Hi Paul,

Sorry for my delay,

When we spoke on friday I was unaware that Jamie (one of our Tech's) was away
until today. I have asked him this morning what mods were done and this is his
list;

HY-GAIN V (2795DX)

1)RF Output stage mod = makes the RF output devices run cooler by 25%.
2)IF stage mod = Increased receiver front-end gain and selectivity (min 6db).
3)Full Back2Spec tuning = Factory alignment of entire transceiver.
4)Noise Blanker mod = Noise blanker hard-wired with uprated components.
5)Hy-gain V bleep mod = Makes bleep LOUDER and L O N G E R.
6)Bleep switch = Roger bleep switchable on NB control.
7)Uniden mod = Mic socket re-wired for UNIDEN mics.
8)FM Audio mod = Multi-component mod making FM TX audio 100% better than
standard.
9)VCO expansion mod = VCO components upgraded for broader more-linear response.
10)Squelch mod = Makes the squelch cut-off more defined.

I must say the radio works very well and i'm very pleased with it and the guys a cobraworxshopz certainly know what they are doing Very Happy

Simon also he asked me to tell you about a new cobra they are working on and would like to share some information with you!!!!
Thanks for your patience peoples and pictures to follow Very Happy
