The M-495 POWER is an advanced high quality multi-standard CB radio featuring a 2nd generation ESP "Compander" RX/TX modulation processor (compressor-expander) for improved receive and transmit audio quality.
Our Opinion : Designed around a high-power MOSFET transmitter circuit capable of 20w output on FM and AM, although we have to (by law) supply it in the legal 4w state, it has been specifically designed to be 'opened up' for higher power - details of how to do this can be found on the 'net, and it's simple to do! The higher output power capability is just one of this units advantages, it also features lots of really useful facilities... along with the high quality of construction and impressive performance makes the M-495 POWER a fantastic advanced radio, and very good value at this price.
The M-495 POWER is the same size as Midland 48 & 248, Intek M-490/899, TTi TCB-880/881 and many other CB's with a width of 153mm, and makes an ideal direct replacement if you're looking to replace one of these models.
