I have run this radio for 3 years now and the only problems I've had have been antenna related. Also, one of the segments on the channel display has died, but it doesn't affect the operation of the radio. You cannot run a power mic with it and use the Sound Tracker feature, and you antenna has to be almost perfect or it will cause the radio to lock up with it on.

Good radio for general use, but not for a CB hobbyist.

Great radio, got 400 miles with it skipping from WI to IN. Only complaint is that it doesn't save your settings if you don't provide it with a memory wire (constant 12V+).

Pretty sweet. My boss found out I was getting the jeep and ordered these up for me him and our friend. Turns out some other ppl we work with have them and my uncle as well. It's a lot of fun and great range.

Good for trailing. I can reach about 7 miles out with a 4 foot antenna mounted on the front bumper.

This CB is pretty decent. Fits in the stock radio location after moving my CD player to the Tuffy console, front facing speaker works great for that location too. Decent reception all around, and can't be beat for the price.

Clear sound, really like the small size and colour (read- NOT chrome). I'm very pleased with it.

Good clear signal, NOAA channels are great when in the bush/ mountains. LED's are bright but not hard on the eyes at night.
