Cobra 148 user here too, modded for all the channels you'd need plus a 4 element quad on a large pole.

Sometimes wish I still had them, but it's easier to chat globally with the internet now

Re: Dud Purchases

I bought Anti fog wipes for my glasses not to steam up when wearing them. I was recommended them by Vision Express.

They r useless.

I still have my [modded] Superstar 2000 (which was very similar to the C148).
Just no ariel, no SWR meter, or anything else now, its probably 35+ years since I last used it.

I bought one deliberately for it a few years ago and enjoyed gaming in 3D. I prefer my ultra wide screen more not though and that cost more than the TV
