CB Radio

I've searched the site about the subject but since I'm gonna be doing most of my off roading with you all I figured I post it on the SO Cal section

I'm considering...Well, planning on purchasing a CB radio for future runs and wanted to get some input. I'm looking for something small, easy to install/operate and wont dent the funds too much. I've looked on rightchannelradios.com and pretty much decided on the Uniden Bearcat PRO 510XL. Since Uniden is what I use on my boat and I don't have any problems with it.

Is any of ya'll running that same unit? And i don't think the antenna comes with the package and would have to buy one seperatly.

I'm rocking the Wal-mart style Cobra 19. It was only $35 and does a decent job. the main thing is the antenna don't skimp there and make sure you get it tuned. Check out this one...http://www.rightchannelradios.com/co...radio-185.html

I found this site helpful. Pages 1 and 2 have some other info, and the 4th page has some more radios. They're all more expensive though but it gives you something to compare.

I have one of these Midland units ($70):
http://www.amazon.com/MIDLAND-75-822...1005661&sr=1-1

I comes with a dc power cord for in-vehicle use and a battery pack for portable use. The DC power cord has a jack for an external antenna.

the only difference between the link and what I have is the RF Gain which helps out when there are trucks around and possibly using our channel you can tune them out (correct me if I'm wrong guys). I think thats helpful.

If you need it for this weekend go to walmart. I bought the Cobra 19DX IV from Amazon and it has worked great for me. I will have a SWR Meter at Cleghorn. Get a decent Antenna. I have the Lil Wil and it is awesome. I hit trees with it all the time and it stays on. Solid.

I have the Uniden Bearcat and it's great, got all the bells and whistles... Also has NOAA weather but costs a pretty penny. For the antenna I have the K40, which is a good one.

Is having the NOAA option worth it? How often do you use it?

If I had to buy again, I don't think I'd get the NOAA. Not because it isn't useful, just because I don't think it's worth how much you pay for a radio that has it. I use it whenever there's a storm here just to check up on whats going on as far as how long/how severe the storm is.

I drive an 1:15 to work and the same from work every day. In the North Country it is very useful. It gives pretty much hour by hour forecasts and I can hear what is going on more readily than the radio. Then I can switch it back over the the CB and listen to the chatter up ahead. If I didn't drive like I do I would have no reason to have it though.
