First radio I received would

First radio I received would not transmit, numbers would not completely light up and I could not change colors. The A+ customer service immediately shipped me a new radio and it works like a champ.

The Right Radio from Right Channel Radios (see what I did there!?) ;)

This is the perfect radio for my Jeep, especially given the small form factor. It offers tons of features, and the automatic squelch control is a game changer for me. Replaced a Uniden 510XL with this Prez Johnny III and there's a night and day difference between the quality and performance. The Uniden is a toy compared to this thing. Love the clarity, power and most of all the reliability. It's a tank! Right Channel folks were amazing as usual, and they took time to chat with me to work through my needs. Truly a win/win scenario. Buy with confidence!!

Great Radio

Great Radio

great cb

Color change is nice, mic us small and light weight some might like, but not me, the weather channel is great, small and light weight cb. The all black color and not chrome is great as I put mine on the dash and not under the dash, channel selector on the mic is not for me as I keep changing the channel, need to get use to this feature I guess,
