    The one with the Gold face plate ? 10 m radio ? If so I sold one a few years back . Sorry I tried to delete this post and couldn't so I had to edit . I had no idea what these radios were worth and now that I'm studying for my ham license if I can get it back it won't leave my sight again . I'm still trying to delete this .

    I believe most of them were shipped with improper bias setting, or something. I knew a couple locals that had one. They always seemed to crap out.

    There were a few revisions, it seems like they eventually worked the bugs out but by that time they already had a bad reputation.

    W9 ,I'm not sure why but when I sold mine a few members on here wanted it , I guess it is sought after by some . Must say it sounded fine on the CB Freq's I never tried the others because I was not licensed to do so . But for a radio with a Cobra Pre Amp mic it sounded fine and hate those Cobra mic's . jmo

    My2995dx , Believe it or no I paid $20 for mine @ a yard sale 2 miles from my house about 3 years ago it came with the Cobra preamp mic and a Sadelta cm-40 desk mic , I sold the radio for $200 bad thing is I can't get the Sadelta to work on my Cobra 2k , I love the mic no echo just a switch to turn off the beep ( which I personally find annoying ,jmo ).
