Our Opinion : A very nice front facing speaker CB radio, ideal for installing in a spare car stereo slot (DIN slot) or cubby box, glovebox etc. Includes both a standard bracket AND a DIN cage mounting. You can select either green or red display lighting to best suit your interior. Very good build quality and performance.
Large wide angle LCD display showing received signal strength, channel number as well as frequency and transmit power when transmitting. Also shows indicators for all functions. Can be switched between green and red and can also be dimmed
Manual or automatic squelch control for less hiss between transmissions. The automatic squelch facility is noise level controlled rather than signal level controlled meaning it reacts when the noise of the signal is such that the signal becomes understandable - this is much better than most auto squelch systems that just have a preset signal level. The auto squelch can be switched on and off by a button on the front fascia and with a button on the top of the mic - a great idea.
Channel scan function continuously scans the channels, stopping on ones where a signal is present... it will then stay on this channel until transmissions have stopped for 10 seconds and it will then restart scanning
Five easy-to-program memory channels so you can get one-button access to your most commonly used channels. These memory channels can also be scanned separately (so the unit only scans these 5 channels instead of all the channels)
Buttons for immediate access to the calling channel (19) and the emergency channel (09)
Comes complete with DIN mounting kit, including sleeve and 2 removal keys
Key press tone (beeps when you press any of the function buttons) can be switched on or off
Lock button so you can lock all of the buttons on the radio - you can lock the unit on a particular channel so you cannot accidentally change channel or activate a facility
Switchable (on/off) roger beep - sends a beep tone at the end of every transmission, particularly useful if signals get weaker or there is a lot of noise - the receiving station can hear the beep easier through the noise and will know that you have stopped transmitting
Loud and clear front facing speaker - also has connector on the rear for an external speaker if needed (which disables front speaker)
Rotary channel change control on the control panel and up / down channel change buttons on the microphone
EEPROM flash memory preserves all settings when the radio is removed from power, even for a long time!
Latest version now has 12v / 24v auto sensing so can be used easily in 12v or 24v vehicles
