CB radio

Well I am in need of a cb radio. I travel quite a bit on the weekends and such. I am looking at getting a CB radio for the road. Now are cobra cb radios any good? I just need something that will provide me with the weather and what is up a head. as well as communicate with fellow friends.

Yeah looking to get 3-5 miles ahead of me. Talk car to car sometimes. A few of my buddys drive semis for a living as well.

i personally have the Cobra 19DXIII in my jeep. it has worked very well for over the last couple years i've had it paired up with a firestick II antenna. the 19 DXIV is the new version of it. doesn't have a weatherband, but that wasn't something i was looking for. other than an all-in-one hand held kind, they don't get much smaller than this model.

the Cobra 18 WXSTII is a similar radio to those above, but has the weatherband, and the speaker is on the front instead of underneath.

i haven't used them personally, but Uniden apparently makes an equal quality (compared to Cobra) CB.
