The Cobra 148 GTL is a full featured radio with 4 watt AM and 12 watt SSB operation. Over the years, Cobra has done a good job keeping the CB radio models that work in production. The 148 GTL is a prime example of this. Professional driver-requested improvements include a front panel microphone connector for convenient in-dash installation, 9-foot microphone cord for easy reach anywhere within the cab, and tactile controls for added convenience and safety when adjusting functions.

This replaces our older 148. That one lasted since 1990.We like having the microphone on the face instead of the side. We didn't have to do anything with our antenna. We would have liked to have been able to "jump" the connection so we could have the internal speaker and external speaker on at the same time, but the board was too small to make a solder connection. Hopefully this is as good as our older one. Cobra has been around for a long time.
This is still one of the best CB radios out there in my opinion. It has all the features you need, great sound, and just plain works.
Better then Excellent ! Love this unit, Matched it up with a 102 " whip and couldn't be happier. When the Cell towers go down, this will be the only long distance communication we will have.
Great, BUT now I need a NEW Antenna!!! Mine's shot.
Excellent radio, ended up using 102 inch SS whip, checked swr and it was perfect no adjustment needed, fast easy hookup.
