The Cobra 148 GTL is the next step up from the AM mobile cb radios that Cobra offers.  With SSB, voice communications are further extended due to the efficiency and increased power this emission/mode offers compared to AM (Amplitude Modulation).

The Cobra 148 GTL has the same quality that the 25 ltd and the 29ltd AM models offer, it's just it's upgraded with Single Sideband.

  

More about the 148 GTL from Cobra:

The original Cobra 148 GTL is back... and better than ever! Professional driver-requested improvements include a front panel microphone connector for convenient in-dash installation, 9-foot microphone cord for easy reach anywhere within the cab, and tactile controls for added convenience and safety when adjusting functions.

There are three types of signals presently used for communications in the Citizens Band: AM, USB, and LSB. When the MODE switch on your unit is placed in the AM position, only standard double-sideband, full carrier signals will be detected. An SSB signal may be recognized while in the AM mode by its characteristic “Donald Duck” sound and the inability of the AM detector to produce an intelligible output. The USB and LSB modes will detect upper sideband and lower sideband respectively, and standard AM signals. SSB reception differs from standard AM reception in that SSB receiver does not require a carrier or opposite sideband to produce an intelligible signal. A single sideband transmitted signal consists only of the upper or the lower sideband and no carrier is transmitted. The elimination of the carrier from the AM signal helps to eliminate the biggest cause of whistles and tones heard on channels which make even moderately strong AM signals unreadable. Also, SSB takes only half of an AM channel, therefore two SSB conversations will fit into each channel expanding the 40 AM channels to 80 SSB channels. The reduction in channel space required also helps in the receiver because only half of the noise and interference can be received with 100% of the SSB signal.
