    That's a fair price.
    I paid $100 for mine. The seller bought 2 of them new and was going to install one in his and the wife's car. Naturally his wife changed her mind so he had to sell one. I couldn't pass it up.

    That wasn't fair. I don't think I'll be buying a new 29. They ain't what they used to be.

    SSB or not, a Cobra isn’t even in the running anymore.

    Why any radio WITHOUT SSB is the pertinent question.

    One may not care about it . . . until the moment it’s REALLY wanted.

    Try the $375 package of

    1). Uniden 980
    2). West Mountain Radio ClearSpeaker
    3). RM ITALY KL203

    you’ll have soon forgotten why you ever thought Cobra was one to have.

    And you can laugh at the guys with 955 Strykers while mobile. Some old boy you’re running with. Keep referring to the conversations he can’t hear.

    The cobra 29 is the one to have for what I wanted out of a mobile radio. For AM only I will still take one of my old 29s over most anything else on the cb/export market. I was curious about the 980 and bought one. It's a nice rig. Great on ssb but just ok on AM.

    No kidding. Someone was playing music on 38lsb yesterday. Every time I tune in to that frequency some fruit loop is showing his ass or the band is closed.
