Good product for the money

jakal from rowlett, tx, Sonic Electronix
17 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Good product for the money. Used on Harley but you will need headset in order to use it hands free. That's another few bucks. It will have better range with better antenna. Also a mounting bracket for handle bar and those have a wide range of price.

Great Radio

Tyler S., Newegg
28 December 2010
  • Summary: It doesn't say it in the manual at least I didn't see it in their but if you hold the function button down until it beeps it will show the channel frequency and not the channel number just a cool little feature. Also the NOAA weather radio works great. Gonna buy a few more for airsoft once I get some cash.
  • Pros: Hand held and Vehicle radio. Gets some good distance, got this little sucker for Christmas along with two firestick 3' antennas and it gets great reception and has good range.
  • Cons: Included hand held antenna doesn't have much range but does the job.

Extremely Useful

John W., Newegg
23 May 2009
  • Summary: Fits in cup holders, packs away easily for security and no holes drilled etc in vehicle for mounting.
  • Pros: Works the way it is supposed to. Solid build, attractive design. i have the kit that includes the power adapter and antenna lead. I have a magnet mounted antenna from RS. works good. Works fine with out additional antenna. I put batteries in it when I bought it and have not had to replace them yet. I have left it on for hours and hours and it keeps going. Very handy on the highway.
  • Cons: Back light goes out too soon. Would be nice if it could stay on as an option.

All-Around Nice Product

mdmclean, PriceGrabber
12 July 2007
  • Summary: This is the best handheld CB that I have ever used. The receive distance is not that good, but what handheld is? With an external antenna, the signal improves greatly. This is also a very compact unit, it fits well in the hand. One small annoyance: the battery pack for the rechargeable batteries does not specify an exact make/model/type of batteries, other than rechargeable Ni-Cads.
  • Pros: Flexible: Small portable, small in-car.
  • Cons: Reception

Best bowhunting rig available

ricpricecrabber, PriceGrabber
17 September 2006
  • Summary: Best rig for hunting out of all the handhelds. Has useful lock feature(you'll regret not using it because the channel change buttons get pushed very easily during hunting and missing the one *heads up* message can ruin a hunting trip). Has NOAH weather reports (breaks the boredom on treestand). Complete kit including carkit, recharger, NIMH battery pack and alkaline battery pack is very awesome. Already using it on my Touring motorcycle also (cigarette lighter power).
  • Pros: Very Good for hunting, better than the UHF personal radios(they are all junk in the mountains
  • Cons: Use name-brand alkalines or NIMH rechargables because batteries don't last more than a day if you talk on high power.
