Great radio! The particular model I own is a Limited Edition gold top Cobra 29. I've had mine for over 3 years and still transmits very well. This radio has been kicked and kneed by many passengers. The mount is very sturdy. This radio has been in 3 vehicles and has been involved in 2 wrecks and numerous off-road excursions and has help up quite nicely. With 18 feet of coax and a 108" steel whip, I was able to get my SWR down to 1.1:1. Coupled to a 250W amp and a Road King RK-56 microphone, this the best talking radio I've ever owned. Great on the trail and on the interstate.
