    I've been contemplating painting my old van in a patriotica sort of theme, and redoing the interior in a 70's vibe.

    That radio seems to fit, appearance wise.

    Sort of light on RF output. The 2970N2 would be a better radio. Or this one: Ranger RCI 2950CD 10 & 12 Meter

    Considering the price of a brand new Cobra 148 back in 1985 cost me $169 that seems like a bargain in today's dollars for what you're getting.

    Wow look at this......."SWR Calibration, Allows calibration of SWR meter to match the antenna to your radio for maximum radiated power"

    Now I understand why some newbies think the SWR Calibration knob somehiw tunes the antenna.
