he wants £650 i dont think so i rather buy a Yeasu 450D. Why have the old radio prices 
gone up so much for 40 year old radio?? beggars belief   lol!

Sold as parts, with some things not working due to modifications. But it is in immaculate condition!! That could have been worded better.

Hello Martin, I still would not pay £300 for that, there are other radios out there cheaper and do the same job. The most I pay for a 40 year old radio is £ 150 because most
Would need servicing / realigning after the screwdriver experts have been inside.or recapping.
Nice to hear from you keep safe.

I see it has now been unlisted due to an advertising error which I can only imagine was the price as nobody in their right mind could possibly think anybody would be willing to pay that for a modded SSB rig, in my own experience, a lot of modifications never increased the value at all and unless you knew who had done them it would make me think twice as there are plenty of screwdriver merchants out there.

I picked up a Cobra 148 GTL DX cheaply several years ago, it was a whole three channels out on SSB, fortunately, my close friend was a Rig Doctor with a frequency counter who fixed the radio up, tweaking it and it was a selling point that it had been set up by this chap at the time too netting me a profit towards my next teenage radio project. (All those years ago)

It's a lovely looking radio whoever modified it has done a cracking job, sadly when you modify and customize things it never increases the value by the cost involved it has to be considered a labour of love. I may have spoken too soon here its up to.£900 and has 27 bids, somebody really wants this radio!
