    Hey guys, looking to purchase a CB Radio for the trails. Can anyone recommend one? Not looking for anything professional.

    Uniden 520xl is nice, cheap, and works well. Can fit nicely in your center console to be out of sight. I have the Cobra 29LX which is great, just a little big.

    I have a Cobra 19 DX IV. Got it after a guy sold his Taco and had a bunch of leftover stuff to give away. Works pretty decent for what I use it for (occasional listening during interstate jams, between friends on trips, etc), and it's a compact model. Also has PA output that's sometimes entertaining to play with at work.

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    I'm running a PC 78Elite. Similar to this:
    https://www.amazon.com/Uniden-PC78LTW-40-Channel-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B00004VXO2

    I love it and would highly recommend it. Even the newer digital model
    https://www.amazon.com/Uniden-BEARCAT-Bearcat-Display-Backlighting/dp/B006TA2F1M/

    I'm not a professional user of CBs. But being able to tune the SWR from the radio is very nice. The the power to use my PA to holler at those fly ass honeys is also nice.
