    Midland 5001z

    This is a awesome cb radio! It's a great size and looks great. It's a mid-size cb so it doesn't reach that far, but it's pretty solid. If your looking for a solid cb to use in the woods or talk to your friends on the road, then you've found the best cb. But if your looking for a cb to communicate long distances then I would buy a bigger one. But overall, it's a great cb!

    Good Radio for a Buck

    Bought it for $50 bucks. Used it as a base station radio at home and in my '06 Chevy Trailblazer. Good radio. Highly durable. I can see this thing lasting longer than the 30 year old Realistic 415 it replaced!

    Decent mid-sized radio

    I got this radio a few years ago for my '92 F-150. It worked great in the woods so you don't have to jump out and see where to go next. Then, I put it in my '83 Chevy. Same thing, it worked great and soon it will be in a little Toyota. I had a magnetic antenna on the roof by switched to 2 four foot fiberglass whips, not only do they look sick they work really good. The Midland 5001z CB is the mix between the cheap-os and the fancy ones. You can't beat the 3 year warranty.
