Uniden 980 SSB

Anyone looked into this cb radio at all? Has anyone bought one? It looks like a great radio, but I'd like to get an owners perspective on it regarding features, quality, and location of install.

Well, I want the sideband option. The 29lx is a couple inches larger as well. Seems to have everything I want. Ssb, weather, scanning features.....all in a relatively small, modern package. I'm just unsure of the performance.

I'm thinking I could mount it on the drivers side of the center console due to the size, but I'm unsure. I don't think I could have it mounted on the rear of the console. I'd hate having to turn around to look at the radio all the time.

I'll look into that. Thanks

I just checked the specs on the Uniden and it looks like it's a little too big for the place I had my 18. The height on the 18 is 1 and 7/8's of an inch and the Uniden is 2 and 1/4 inches. The Cobra was a VERY tight fit there so you would have to find a different mounting location.

Yeah. I don't like the lack of weather and scan features. If it had those, I'd buy it in a second.
