glad to hear the "bad" news on the new 148 for me personally. I just got back into C.B. two months ago and with out checking whats going on these days I bought on eBay a new Cobra 148GTL for a total of $70.00 with the front mic jack etc.as the photo showed, this was the new version of the radio I used back in the eighties for my base and it had made an impression on me that lasted to this day. Well when the package arrived I was surprised that they were still using the same Cobra box "orange & white"exactly like I had remembered mine back in the late eighties. Well I soon realized that this was not new but was from around 1990 still in the box and for some reason I was disappointed and felt swindled and contacted the sellers who were trying to pull a fast one by using eBay's stock photo and the specs. on the new 148. What had gotten my attention immediately was the side mount mic and there eBay photo of a front mount mic anyway they had a "no return" policy well needless to say after I got done with them they not only were going to refund my money but also my shipping. Just for the hell of it I hooked it up and soon couldn't part with it and I have since found out I am
better off with what I have. Whats funny about what the eBay sellers did in there trying to pull a fast one is if they would have been honest in there advertising they would have gotten twice the amount than what I paid.
