A great little CB with a sturdy build; just what I needed! I use this with an old K40 [57.25" mast] magnetic mount which a friend SWR tuned to the new Uniden.

Here's my total review of the Uniden 510 XL. *****!
1. Size. 4-1/2" W x 6-3/4" D x 1-3/8" H makes it perfect for the side pocket in my 2017 Honda H-RV, my pickup, and most importantly my 2006 Honda 350 Rancher where it's mounted on top of the handlebars and plugged into the 12 volt cigarette lighter accessory port. I use a 3' fiberglass whip mounted with a spring on my rear rack. I'm thinking about moving that to the front where it will also knock down spider webs in the woods and on trails. I get 3-4 miles range in the mountains. *****
2. The supplied microphone does OK and has great modulation. With a power microphone, it's as loud as the big rig cb's and I get great reports from a nearby interstate. *****
3. The ANL(Automatic Noise Limiter) does a fantastic job in areas with bad power line or engine noise! Reception is also great. Set squelch and forget it. *****
4. Easy to mount. I use tie wraps that will break away in case it takes a hard knock. These radios are built very tough! *****
5. Audio is great! It has a speaker jack in case I want to use an external speaker or wear headphones under my helmet. As I said above, the ANL does it's job extremely well! *****
6. Controls could be a bit larger, but the LED readout for channels, signal strength, and transmit power/modulation work perfectly even in bright areas. Power out is awesome! 4 watts legal limit does a great job! ****
7. This radio, with a mirror mount for mounting a spring loaded antenna to my ATV racks, and you're ready for the trail or farm work. Another one can be used as a simple base unit with a small 12 volt 1.5 amp power supply and antenna. In all cases, the longer the antenna, the greater the range. A 102" stainless whip can easily reach to 10 miles +!!! I started ouOKWith 2 and now have three 510 XL CB's. Portability *****
8. I'll say this again. Very tough! *****
9. Very low price for a CB. *****
10. I have had CB's since back in the 70's and can honestly say I like the over all construction and quality that make these tougher than any other I've owned. I wouldn't put any other radio on a ATV. There's nothing inside to shake loose. *****
Works great, shipment came sooner than promised.
A very well made radio that has all the basic functions I'll ever need. My only complaint was that the power wires were too short and had to be extended. Other than that it had all the instructions I needed to install and a pamphlet to teach proper etiquette.
Great little unit!
