I wished they had a cb this good in the 80`s, rather than staying on my cell, I enjoy talking to truckers on the interstate. You will not find a cb for the price in any store, ive checked and checked over the last few years
CB's today pretty much give you mediocre performance, compared to their older counterparts. I had the stripped down version of this rig, the Pro510XL (Still do.), but the squelch went on it, but it was a talker and a listener. Now, I use it as a bench test rig. The Pro520XL has that added RF gain feature, which is nice to have. Out of the box the rig does 90% modulation (Because of the limiter set in it.), which is better than what 75% of the rigs out there can do. Also this rig has one of the best receive AGC setting. You can almost be next to someone keying up and they won't sound fuzzy distorted from signal overload. Also, having the ability to turn off the ANL is nice when you're parked in a quiet area and want to hear those weak, distant stations. The S/RF meter isn't bad to get use to, one LED = 1-3lbs, two LED's = 4-6lbs, three LED's = 7-9lbs, and all four LED's = +10lbs and over. We'll see how this rig holds up the test of time in my truck, but so far it's a performer.
This is a great CB if you are cramped for space. I installed this in my wrangler and it's compact size made the install very easy. It's only about an inch longer than a ball point pen and about 1.5 inches thick. Transmits and receives great. As you may know, when installing a CB the quality of the coax cable and antenna have more to do with range than the CB itself. Match this one up with good components and you're good to go!
I have not purchased this yet, it currently sits in my wish list, and I am seeing nothing but great reviews, I hope it will go in my car without trouble, and if everyone says its worth as much as the big dog CB radios but at such a low price, then why not. I'm giving it 5 stars just for the positive factor.
