    CB repair shop near Portland Or?

    Hello,
    Does anyone know a good cb repair shop near Portland, Or? Or a good shop that I can mail my cb to for repair ? I have a Cobra 148GTL born 1994 in Malaysia. Any way it transmits and receives but the meter on the front does not work, had to use an external swr meter to set it up. Any help much appreciated.

    Just a heads up if you don't find a repair shop. You can replace those meters yourself cheap if you have patience for that kind of thing. Good luck!

    I don't have a problem doing that. I will open her up to verify the meter. I assume this would be an acceptable replacement ?

    I too am looking for a good radio repair shop in the Portland Vancouver area. I have called a lot but they are out of business. I have done some repair and would be glad to help you if you like. By all means I am no expert but have not screwed up any radio yet. Sometimes you can free up a meter if you are careful with it.
