Summary: I haven't used it too much, but I have ben able to get a friend on his radio about 6 or 7 miles away in a very suburban environment. I have added a Wilson 1000 whip antenna to get beter range. Haven't gone on the road yet, but this radio works pretty well so far.
Summary: I'm happy with the Uniden CB. I've used it for about three weeks and it seems to work as well as the much more exspensive radio that I replaced. I would definitely recommend this radio to a friend.
Summary: It's compact, powerful, and has a solid construction. This radio is just a hair bigger than the RadioShack Mini CB that I purchased originally. It's also 7-8 watts, so it can reach out there without the use of an amplifier. I personally use it most for the PA option. I'm running a small 25W power horn with no amplifier and it's very loud. My truck is a 7.3L Powerstroke and you can hear the PA over the engine and the straight exhaust (pretty impressive).
Pros: This is a solid performing CB radio. I like it because it is very small and fits well into cars without much trouble. One feature I especially like is the RF gain, which allows you to tune out unwanted noise. This is especially good for use in cities where you have many signals, some weaker than others. In testing the transmit distance, I have found excellent sound quality at a distance of 2 miles, and moderate static at a distance of 4 miles when coupled with a Wilso...
Cons: Some might say the microphone cord is a little short, but as long as the main box is mounted, you have plenty of stretch.
