Good Radio, Good Price, A Few ShortcomingsReview by Rick
Two things to be aware of with this unit are those that other reviewers pointed out: The display is impossible to read in the daytime, even though I have it mounted under the dash, and the volume needs to be turned way up to hear CB channels.
The other issue I have (maybe this is due to my set up but I didn't have the problem with my old radio and have an SWR reading below 1.5 on all channels with this one) is that I receive an unacceptable amount of static when passing under over head lines and have to turn the squelch all the way up to eliminate it. This is not a problem off road or on the highway but it makes communication very difficult in town.
I rated the radio at 4-Stars because of the many features for the price and that it works well for me. However, if you are someone that uses a CB in the city, needs to read the display often or has a lot of road nose in your vehicle you should be very aware of this unit’s shortcoming.

Good Recreational RadioReview by Zach
The speaker isn't very loud when on the CB, but plenty loud enough for the weatherbands. The SoundTracker feature doesn't do much in my opinion, and I haven't used the Dual Watch as it says on 19. The scan will stop on any channel it picks up static, so you have to turn the squelch up a little before you scan.
Despite the negatives I've mentioned, its not a bad little radio for a non-commercial driver or occasional user. I get about 4 miles out of it on a clear day, which is pretty good in my area. I would have rated it four stars if the speaker was louder for the CB, but gave it three as I found the need to add an external speaker.
