what do you guys think about this one? its small and looks good. Does it work as good some of the larger more expensive models? I dont care so much about all the adjustments some them of them have as long as it works decent enough to use while off roading

I dont care too much about extra functions... i wish it has the NOAA weather channels, but other than that how is this for a basic CB?

I had/have a tweaked and peaked (14watts) 29LTD Classic in my 96 on a K40 and a Lil Will antenna both mag bases. It ran better on the K40.

Its time for me to move up to bigger and better things UHF/VHF!!!

You have to get an amature licence in order to transmit on them but there way worth it... you can listen to aviation, police, fire, emt. RACE TEAMS. transmitt on amature bands.. hook it up to gps and transmit your location etc. etc..

you all sould check in to it... One will be in my 05 soon.. just gotta figure which one I really want....

I run a 40 channel Midland. And a 4ft Firestick. It was thin enough to put it in the dash under the kenwood stereo. Works great for Me
