Cobra 2000 GTL Review
Cobra 2000 GTL Overview
The Cobra 2000 CB Radio was first manufactured in the early 1980’s by the Dynascan Corporation in Chicago USA. It is a 40 Channel AM/SSB rig with built in frequency counter, 13.8V power supply and it’s own external speaker. The Cobra 2000 was perhaps the most legendary CB ever produced and even today it is a sort after radio. With sleek looks and a great RX and TX they even hold their own against most of the modern day rigs.
I got my 2000 in the early 80s and love it.
I have had other radios but none as good as the cobra 2000.
Always wanted a Cobra 2000
It’s a radio that I always wanted but just never ended up getting one. Man they look a treat especially with the blue LED kits etc. Maybe one day I’ll own one. I have spoke to many operators over the years who are using the Cobra’s and the audio has always been superb. Great looking radio, great performers, I want one!
By far the very best Base Station… I brought this radio around 1983 I haven’t keyed up in over 25 years, it still looks good and I’m sure it works very well
I love this radio,best I’ve ever owned and talked on,my Grandfather bought it brand new,I talked on it for years and it’s still loud and proud,with a D-104 and a Hygain CLRll antenna…243 Ontario Canada.
Bloody magnificent radio !
Best rig ever made, second to none. I always wanted one but never got there. Legendary styling and great performance from an old radio.
The second most Iconic Radio of all Time
This Iconic Transceiver has held its ground for the last 30 years plus !!!!! its now a high demand item for the older collectors… which means you and me pay more today than they cost years ago… Finding one that hasn’t had the butchers up down frequency switch’s drilled in the case is a major ask too…. Why do collectors have to own multiple units when surely one’s enough… never owned one.. just a touch on the expensive side now… has always been my dream to own one though..
Great CB rig from the past
The Cobra 2000 was a great radio and very popular in the united states. Many have made their way into Australia and other countries. They still hold their own against some of the latest rigs. They look great and even though most are getting to the age of needing repairs, once tuned up and aligned they will perform well for years to come.
Very nice radios. I have 5 of them in my shack. If I was home I would add a picture of them all.
Performance Plus and best looking
I myself own one of these beautiful radios.best radio I’ve ever had.receive I never heard any better,never had any better ssb performance or am performance.
I think it’s great looking and performing well c b radio I have owned one and am very happy with it works well with a Silver Eagle microphone hooked up to it.
Brilliant rig with looks to match
I’d have to agree that the Cobra 2000 is a legendary radio, it is up there with the Madison and GE Superbase. Besides these no other radios comes near it. Great RX, really punchy and loud TX especially when matched up with a Turner or an Astatic D-104.
The Best Base Station CB Radio ever made
The Cobra 2000 was without doubt up there with the best CB’s ever made. They look great, have a frequency counter and all the features that you could ever want. The external speaker produces great audio and the RX and TX are brilliant. After these rigs have been tweaked and modded then they perform as good as or better than any of the latest rigs. I always wanted a Cobra 2000, maybe one day.
