So, you're sitting there viewing this page in your browser, perhaps with a look of doubt in your face. That's why you've scrolled down here to the reviews. You're thinking to yourself "A $30 CB? It can't be worth a flip, right?". I tell ya what, I was thinking the same thing. But I gave it a shot and installed it in my wife's little '97 Corolla a few days ago, and so far I've been pretty impressed.

When I pulled it out of its box, my first thought was "Wow, cheap". And indeed it is. Its plastic case has almost no weight to it. The knobs and switches have the tactile feedback of a dirt-cheap appliance from Wal-Mart. Being the ham radio geek that I am, the first thing I did was pull out my trusty phillips screwdriver and open the case. More cheapness on the inside, all of the components no doubt obtained from the lowest bidder somewhere in Asia. However, I didn't see any sign of shoddy manufacturing that I've seen in other super-cheap products. No solder marbles shaking around inside, no apparent bad solder joints, components all in good shape, and everything seems to fit and function well. I put it back together.

Time to install. I spent an hour measuring and cutting a hole in the plastic tray beneath the stereo in our little Corolla to accommodate the length of the unit ; slid it in and secured it with 3M double sided tape. It looks pretty good, non obtrusive, black case matching the rest of the plastic in the car. It will no doubt fit will in other small cars too. After some snipping and soldering, I had power from the backside of the cigarette lighter. I temporarily attached my antenna (more on antennas later) and turned it on.

My main gripe is the channel knob.

I have been into CB radios since they first came out. I also have 50 year experience as a ham radio operator and an electrical engineer. I have never had a better CB radio. I purchased a second one just to have in years to come as a spare. I use it every day-it has very low crosstalk from high power CB transmitters nearby on the Interstate.

Can't beat it for the $

I purchased this radio new on Amazon for about 26 bucks delivered; not a bad price for any CB that is in working order, new or used! So there is value here! The first radio I received was defective; the receive section totally lost it's sensitivity after a few minutes of turning the radio on, and it was easily replaced with a fully functioning one. As one who enjoys "big" rig equipment, the compact size in this case allowed me to install it within the space beneath a removable tray in my car. Using a good quality extension speaker did the trick; but the radio has surprisingly good audio quality and volume from its internal speaker. An added bonus that NONE of the sellers; even the manufacturer ever mentions is that this rig does have an RF Gain control, a feature NEVER seen in a radio at this price point. Another thing I am impressed with is the fact that the squelch control actually works properly; set it for a particular threshold, and it will allow signals to pass selectively based on the FULL range of differently received signal strengths. It seems that the radio has some sort of "fuzzy logic" that allows a signal to break the squelch and remain received even as the signal fluctuates under the selected threshold to some degree. Most squelch circuits, even in high priced equipment, operate miserably in this regard. So with the other features presented with this radio, ease of operation, good TX & RX audio, the nice size package, and the price - you simply can't go wrong!

My old Uniden CB handitalkie died so I wanted a new CB radio for keeping track of traffic conditions when I'm on a road trip. I noticed the very low price on this Midland and ordered one.

When it arrived, I put it on the bench to try it out, connected to a 12 volt, 10 Amp power supply, Bird watt-meter and a 50 Ohm dummy load. When I hit the PTT switch on the mike the meter on the radio moved up to full scale, but the watt-meter showed zero. I double checked my connections and even connected the watt-meter setup to another radio and it worked fine. Hmmm... Being an old (in both terms of the word) radio guy, a licensed ham for 51 years, I opened up the radio.

Lo and behold, the short length of bare wire going from the circuit board to the SO-239 connector was broken right where it was supposed to be soldered to the center pin of the coax socket. I heated up the soldering iron and repaired the connection. Back into testing mode and, sure enough, the watt-meter now shows exactly 4 watts when I key the mic.

It seems like a nice little radio with basic features that serve my needs when I'm on the road. I like that it has an RF gain control and would miss the NOAA weather channels except that my mobile Ham rig has that capability so it's not important in my case.

Other than the one caveat about potential quality problems, I think this is a very good value for the money if what you need is a simple to use, basic CB transceiver.

I'd also like to make a comment about CB radio antennas in general. All the radios put put the same power, 4 watts. The single factor that has the most effect on the range you get is the antenna. Small is NOT better.
