The Cobra 1000GTL is basically a Cobra 2000GTL without sideband. “Why was this radio ever made” would be a logical question here. Since these radios were fairly expensive, it didn’t make sense to shell out that kind of money and not have USB/LSB capability. It sure looked nice, though. Performance was solid, as you would expect from Dynascan CBs of this era. Contrary to popular rumor, the external speaker shown here was NOT an optional accessory. It came standard as part of the Cobra 1000GTL package.
