Can't go wrong with this Midland. $28 shipped. I went with a Wilson "Lil Wil" magnet antenna ($30). Works great.

Midland seems to be a good brand. I also have a K40 antenna. its base loaded and it has a magnet mount. anybody had experience with this? range issues?

I have a Uniden Pro 520XL. I haven't used it too much but I will mainly use it on trails. It comes in handy though for traffic use too.

Love it! Trail use only, BUT recently I got the PA speaker. So now Im using that for...
1) Ordering food through the drive thru
2) Playing my stereo a little louder
3) Yelling at the pedestrians as I drive by
4) Letting people know I'm backing up... they better leave me room.

I'm totally kidding. It's fun to use though.

Thumbs up

Uniden 520 floats in and out of the Camry with a Lil Will antenna...My uniden pc122 or Superstar 3900hp were floating in the p/u BUT the big plan is to mount the Magnum S-3 on a 6" swivel,passenger side hump just to the left of the glove box and the 10K on the tool box ( trying to find a gull-wing box for under $500 )..Love my "Export" radios,can float to "quiet" areas to talk during storms or busy times on the regular channels....
Plus with the Tacoma install,I can justify buying a new radio for my "Mack Office".


Snoope back quiet

Do you guys run certain channels while out on the trails or just scan till you find someone??
