Comments: Great old radio!! With a 104" fiberglass whip antenna, I can talk for miles!! The SSB isn't too bad, just like other SSB radios, it's a pain in the butt to tune in while on the road.

Price: $5.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I recently upgraded to Cobra(mine is actually the older unit that preceded the 148 GTL, purchased from a truck driver), from my old Radio Shack unit when I installed my Tuffy overhead console, and am more than happy with the quality and clarity of the Cobra unit. HUGE improvement.
