Price: $99.99
Pros: All in one mic. No need to look around to see your settings. Channel scan and Weather channels.
Cons: A bit heavy. A few more button operations to remember than my last CB.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought this to replace my last CB which had given up the ghost. A lot more features than what I was expecting given the size of the mic. Only problem is that mounting the connection box for your antenna, the box is small and can be mounted almost anywhere, but it's not that waterproof. Comes with all the mounting hardware you need to mount it wherever you chose and the mic cable is long enough also. Once you get everything set up and tuned, it's a great Radio. I would most likely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced set-up.

Price: $201.00
Pros: Easy to hide, weather radio came with external speaker
Cons: Can't see the display and talk at the same time, needs external speaker in a jeep
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought as a jeep kit from Right Channel. Came with CB, Wilson flex antenna, SWR meter, cable, mount for right rear tail light and external speaker. Install was straight forward. No engine noise SWR on channel 1 of 1.2 and on channel 40 it is 1.1 out of the box didn't even need to adjust it.

Price: $120.00
Pros: Compact. Channel control in handset. Weatherband. Easily removed from vehicle for theft avoidance.
Cons: Small speaker. If microphone breaks the entire radio is in for repair or replacement.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Two biggest drawbacks - the speaker is very small, and if the microphone breaks the entire radio is down until it's repaired or replaced.

The installation can be very slick - only a small jack is in the dash, console, etc. and the radio can easily be plugged into or removed from the jack.

An external speaker is heavily recommended for use in Wranglers, CJ's, etc. - due to the small size of the internal speaker the ambient road noise can overpower the audio unless an external speaker is used.

I like their usage in Wranglers because they are so easily removed from the vehicle and secured in a lockbox. In my Commander I reverted to the Uniden 510 because it's not a soft top vehicle and so somewhat less tempting to passerby theft.

The weatherband is a nice feature; I found it very helpful when traveling on vacations. While local am/fm weather is available if you tune in at the right time, the national weather available on the Cobra is always available when a transmitter is within range.

As on all CB's - use a good antenna with this radio. A good antenna, properly tuned, will enhance the performance of the rig.

This radio, to me, is the radio of choice in two circumstances: (1) theft avoidance in paramount and/or (2) space restrictions require an absolute minimal installation.

Price: $90.00
Pros: small, good for mounting in tight spaces. All the controls are in the handset.
Cons: first one was DOA, second one worked fine. Would be nice if all the buttons on the handset were backlit for visibility at night. Once you use it for awhile you get used to it, but hard to see what you're doing at night.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Best CB when install space is limited.

Price: $0.01
Pros: Great transmission and multi-functions
Cons: everything is in the handset so if you are right handed be careful of the volume and squelch dials as you will move them.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It's great! The only issue I have is that you have to be careful when operating it that you do not accidentally move the squelch or volume knob when operating the radio.

Won this in a drawing

Cons: Added external speaker
Recommended? Yes

Price: $120.00
Pros: Small, light, looks good, sends/receives clearly, receives weather band
Cons: More expensive than most
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love this CB. It's very small; all you have to worry about is where to mount the handset, because that has all the controls. The other box can be installed pretty much anywhere out of sight. I listen to the weatherband a lot, so that was a must for me when choosing a CB. This is exactly what I was looking for. I try to keep the interior of my Jeep looking very clean, so this was perfect. Highly recommended!

Price: $97.00
Pros: Compact, everything in the handset, external speaker output if desired
Cons: None, really
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I mounted the radio part up behind the glove box. Very easy install. Very convenient not having to mount a radio anywhere in the already crowded TJ cab. Hand set can be unplugged and removed when not in use, which helps keep prying eyes and thieving hands to themselves. Convenient and easy to use, with all the controls making sense in the handset.

Pros: Great price, new or used. Compact, easy to use, easy install...
Cons: Need to pick up an external speaker for use on highways. At slow speeds it can be heard perfectly.

Comments: No big complaints about this CB. I'd buy this unit again, easy use, easy install. I needed something I could lock up when not in use, the all in one handset is easily locked up.

Cobra 75 WX ST
Price: $129.95
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This unit was installed in the jeep when I bought it. I did not like the antenna, so I installed a new one. I have not used this radio much at all so I can not give it a fair evaluation. I like the convenience of not having a seperate radio to mount in the jeep. I love the channel scan feature. I don't like the stiff coil cord and the large microphone that is the 75WX ST. It is a handful.

Comments: Great little radio.
I strongly recommend the use of an external speaker. It's perfect for trail rides where you're close to the folks you want to talk to but if you want something with some real distance this is not really the ideal unit for you.
