President are one of the best known and respected CB radio manufacturers in the world, and this is their top-of-the-range legal CB. In terms of build quality, this radio is more like a professional business radio than a CB and features a large LCD display, front facing loudspeaker and many useful facilities.
Top grade components have been used in manufacture, the radio has an excellent and thoroughly "worked out" circuit design and professional grade controls and buttons, making this the best built legal CB radio ever.
This unit is legal for use in the UK and Europe - President have previously been known for their top notch illegal (in this country at least) radios that are known throughout the world as being some of the best around.
Our Opinion : CB's don't get any better than this... President have exceeded even their high standards with this radio and it shows in every aspect of it's appearance and performance. The one slight let-down?... lack of Public Address facility.
