For the price this is a great scanner. It can be a bit tricky to program it, if you have issues programming it yourself there are many places out there that will program your radio for you (for a fee). If you go this route you really need to check out the reviews on that company, There are some great programmers out there, but there are some out there with the goal to rip people off. After spending out for this radio, I simply could not afford to spend more money on it. Youtube was a great help along with the manual,and I now have a scanner that picking up the the local action and some that was was a bit farther than I expected (just over 60 miles away, my guess is repeaters). Needless to say that you will also need Radio Reference which is well worth the annual fee. I hope that you get a good radio and enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine. Have a great day and good luck.
It's compact, powerful, and has a solid construction. This radio is just a hair bigger than the RadioShack Mini CB that I purchased originally. It's also 7-8 watts, so it can reach out there without the use of an amplifier. I personally use it most for the PA option. I'm running a small 25W power horn with no amplifier and it's very loud. My truck is a 7.3L Powerstroke and you can hear the PA over the engine and the straight exhaust (pretty impressive). The actual CB is all metal, so you know its durable (versus the cheap CBs from Walmart and RadioShack that are made out of plastic). Great buy, and Overstock has the best price anywhere. Buy this CB!
I'm always on trips around town, and to other towns. It comes in handy when there's traffic backed up and no one knows why. I just need to call out and a trucker that is further a head of me will tell me what's going on. I just bought a better antenna for it and I hope to get better range with it.
