I'm not a huge CB radio expert, but I use them from time to time on the road. This radio gets out pretty well with my Firestick antenna, and an SWR of 1.2 - 1.5. I've always heard that the Uniden radios hold up extremely well, and this looks to be more of the same high quality.
The body of the radio is in between the compact and full sized radios, but it fits well behind my tuffy console. The front speaker is audible at low speeds, but I added an external.
Finally, the best thing about the radio is that I bought it from Uniden Direct for much less than I was able to find it other places. It was nice and cheap that way.
