WE DO NOT HAVE ANY LEFT SO THIS RADIO IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
The 278 WAs a modernised and improved version of the 78, this set has a new Noise Blanker system for less unwanted noise, rotary channel change and quick up and down (10 channels at a time) buttons on facia, scan facility, last channel recall and channel 9 immediate access button. Blue backlit LCD display showing channel, band, signal meter and RX/TX indicators and country allocation selected. Up & down channel change and lock buttons on mic. Extension speaker ouTput.
Our Opinion : Midland use new "surface mount technology" in the manufacture of this CB radio, the idea being that with components mounted directly on the circuit board, (instead of the usual way of components with wire legs that then get soldered to the board) lifespan will be increased, especially in 4x4's and farm vehicles where vibration is a big factor. All things considered, a great mid-price CB radio!
