Pros: Size, Scanning
Cons: Sound, can't lock out single channels when scanning
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Works fine with a 36" magnet mount antenna. Haven't tested for range though. Fits nicely under the passenger seat. Coiled cord is very stiff, could be a little longer. Sound is what it is from a tiny speaker. Haven't added a remote speaker yet.

Pros: All in one, doesn't take up much space
Cons: after 2 years of ownership, the internal speaker is failing
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love this radio. The internal speaker is failing, seems to be a common issue after I went and researched it. I'm looking into having the internal speaker replaced rather than buy a full sized CB.

Price: $80.00
Pros: Works great, compact and takes up nearly no space
Cons: You will NEED to buy an aux speaker because it's a bit quiet when wheeling on the trail
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Radio works great, very clear with a tuned CB antenna and transmits clearly as well. Only gripe is that you will need an aux speaker for the CB since the handset isn't very loud. It will suffice while driving on the road in most cases, but when on the trail in 4LO and bouncing around you'll want some more sound. It's not a big deal, but just plan on spending an extra $10-15 for a small speaker... mine is mounted on my roll bar on the B hoop between the front seats.

Pros: Ordered entire setup through Right Channel Radio. Bracket, CB, Antena, etc.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Used the radio for the first time this weekend riding trails at Catahoula Recreational Park in Louisiana. Worked perfectly. I was able to monitor the main channel that the majority of the riders were on and monitor the channel that my group was on. How cool is that?

Price: $1.00
Pros: Compact, Mic unit can be removed, lots of features (too many!!!)
Cons: Mic is bulky and heavy. Inadvertant hitting of buttons is likely, leaving you off channel or in scan mode. Weak modulation and speaker (No ears or mouth)
Recommended? No

Comments: I had a friend give me this unit when I bought my second Jeep. At first, I thought it would be a great unit, and wondered why he gave it to me. It was only used a few months.

It was easy to install, with the interface box mounted below the driver seat of my Cherokee, and a mic clip on the dash. I used a 4' Firestik antenna with a hood mount. SWR was good (1.2)

My first observation was that there was a heck of a lot of controls on the mic. Driving down the road and using them is like texting... Don't do it! Inadvertantly hitting controls such as the Instant Channel 19 will take you off channel. Also, the channel buttons are just above the Push To Talk (PTT) button. Several times on each trip out with friends I would be driving along monitoring or calling friends with no response, only to find out that I hit the instant channel 19 button or a channel select button and was not monitoring our designated channel. Driving down the highway, with just occasional conversation, this wouldn't be such a big deal, but driving on a technical 4x4 trail, trying to receive and give instructions about route and obstacles, this is a big deal!

So, you have to look at the mic each time you use the radio to ensure you are on the right channel.

The next problem I found was that the mic head is quite heavy, and after a day of wheeling, jawboning with the other guys, it is like using a handheld radio, too heavy compared to more conventional radio configurations.

I travelled with six other jeepers on a 7 day run, and two of them were using the same model radio as mine. Both of these two rigs had very weak modulation and limited range. When I noticed that, I started experimenting with mine, and found that the power output and modulation was far weaker than my other Jeep's radio (Uniden Pro 520xl) with the same type antenna and SWR.

Overall, I am dissatisfied with the radio. I gave it to a friend, so I guess this is worth the price (free) but I have to agree with the friend who gave it to me... not worth buying. I replaced the Cobra with another Uniden Pro 520xl, and I am very happy with that radio.

Comments: I love the small size of this radio and how compact it is. The volume is pretty load and I have no problems with hearing on the trail. I also am a big fan of the "scanning" channels option when out on the trail.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Small/Compact, great range for what it is, easy installation
Cons: Quiet speaker, big handset.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Was given this as a parting gift by my ex fiance's father (a truck stop merch supplier) when I left her. He said I would love it and he was right.

For YEARS I've used this same CB. Normally sells between $75 and $100 CB alone. Had it mounted in my Civic for a long time for long boring drives. Had the tiny window-sticky antenna and it worked great. Incredible range even with the crappiest antenna you can find. Going to be using an external speaker this time though as my heep is balls-out loud.

Works great for small vehicles with limited mounting space like Wranglers. This time around, I'll use a full whip inside my soft top and bow it to the front roll bar, retaining it with the velcro straps on hand grips so I can keep it inconspicuous. Whips are like an excuse for as$holes to break into your rig and it's not like some canvas is really going to limit your signal very much if at all. Top off? Let that whip fly!!!

Price: $162.95
Pros: All controls easy to access, easy to mount due to small size
Cons: I seem to transmit quieter than others, measured output is 2 watts according to my meter, not the 4 advertised
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The CB has acceptable range and receives signals clearly. The handset speaker is a little on the quiet side, but I hang it from my roll bar so that's not much of an issue. Mounting was easy due the small size of the antenna/power junction box.
