As a truck driver for 30 years, I have had 3 cb radios in my trucks. This one replaced one that was stolen and has performed extremely well for what I need it for. Like most radios out of the box, you will need to have it peaked and tuned for better reception and transmission. Usually another **** bucks will get it done from an expert radio person.
I bought this for my grandboys. It says the range is 16 miles, but could not work at 500 feet. So don't think you will be able to go far and still communicate. You can't
Bought three sets along with the secret service style earpieces. they worked great, exactly what we needed. They weren't tested for extreme range, but inside a two-story building they were perfect. Lightweight but solid and powerful.
