    Found a 148 GTL on Craigs list, but it's listed with some other equipment and has no price. I texted the guy about it and he said it's all stock and in excellent condition. What are they worth? I saw a slightly modified one in the classifieds for 100 bucks shipped, so I'm assuming this one would be worth about the same, right?

    I just sold one that was is great shape to one of my neighbors for $30. It was 5 years old and I got my money's worth of use out of it. If I were to have sold it on Craigs list I would have put $55 on it. It's nothing special.

    Just go to E-Bay and search completed listings of cobra 148s, then you will get an idea of what they are worth. If it's one of the new 148's I would skip it, they suck. As with anything on craigslist be careful, might be a reason he is getting rid of it. Just because he says it's stock don't mean it is or even works.

    You don't go to eBay to see what a radio is worth...you go to eBay to see how much some dumbass paid for it.

    I wouldn't pay no more than $60 for a 148 side mic in superb condition. However, there's plenty of nostalgia buffs out there, which I'm not.

    Thanks guys!

    Well he is very slow at responding to text messages and I mean very, but here is the ad listing.

    "Cobra Base Station, mod. GTL148 with ssb. Comes with (2) D104 chrome models, desk style base Power mics. All in excellent condition. All hard to find pieces. Will through in a Galaxy linear amp for quick sale!
    Cash & locals ONLY!"

    He wants 250 for all.

    Im going to give him a call this evening to get the scoop.
