I've purchased a Connex 4800 and a Cobra 148GTL in the past. I've also imported a few radios new.

I've changed radios that many times, I've forgotten what I have :think:

I've bought Cobra 148 GTL-DX parts in the past - covers, chrome surrounds, black brackets, and a vinyl decal or two from Debs Decals and the other place - but never a radio. 7v Duracell batteries for 007 microphones etc was my last purchase from the US CB-wise.

Saying that though, I collect UKFM radios so I wouldn't really import them to be honest.
