I couldn't be much happier with this unit. Where it really shines is in battery life. I've used this in various 4x4 competitions and my teammates use some much larger, clunky handhelds that require 10 batteries and eat them up quick (several sets in a weekend). I use 6 nicads in my midland unit and they last and last.
Its a pretty decent mobile unit too with the adapter. With an external antenna the range is tremendously improved. My only real complaint is that I wish that there was a way to lock the backlighting on when using the car adapter - this would make it easier to use at night.

This is a very compact, well designed, and versatile unit that can be easily moved from one vehicle to another or used as a handi-talkie. The number of useful features and sensitivity of the receiver pleasantly surprised me. With an external antenna, I found the NOAA weather band usable with broadcasts 50 miles distant and the CB effective at five miles. Adjacent channel selectivity is quite good. Perhaps the only limitation in this unit is the relatively low audio output that might require near maximum volume when the windows are open at highway speeds. But, audio quality is very good with no distortion even at maximum volume.

All the complaints I've read about this Radio are pretty pointless. This is the best Hand Held CB I've ever owned. Go to Sears or Best Buy, see what HH CB's they have in, Probably just one, the Cobra 37 ST. Does that have channel scan, 5 memories, memory scan, freq. display, REAL mobile adapter not just a car power cord, NOPE. How much do they want? $40 in Best buy, and get this, $79.99 in sears, check their website.

The problems with range come with any handheld. I dont see the problem, take any hand held in a car and its range will go way down, But midland is only company that provides you with an external antenna hookup/power cord combined and make your radio the size of most mic's, you cant go wrong. The best you'll get from others is a DC power cable, but no way to connect an external car antenna to it. and they will still be full length.

You could also MOD this unit to pick up 120 channels CB (all you need to do is solder one connection...) if your more experienced, you can mod it to pick up 400 channels (don't believe me, try a search engine and type "Midland CB Mod"...

This scanner is the BEST on the market, and I cant believe the price. Would be nice if it has USB/LSB but hey, you cant get everything. It covers all the bases.

This is a really nice compact CB that works great for the occasional user. If you're planing on using this on a daily basis I would recommend getting a regular CB if you have the room for it (I don't think a trucker would be happy using this every day).

Responding to the negative reviews that say something like "It didn't work at all", I wonder what "at all" means. I suspect some of those people may have tried to use the mobile adapter and the small included whip antenna at the same time. My CB's (I bought 2 of them) didn't get any reception that way without a simple modification. Note: If you're using the battery pack it works fine with the included antenna.

The mobile adapter has two connectors. One connector plugs into the cigarette lighter and another connector is for an external antenna. When the mobile adapter is hooked up (on mine anyway) it's assuming you're using an external antenna so it ignores the included antenna. Without an external antenna hooked up, I wouldn't get any reception. To get it to work I had to put a piece of electrical tape over the terminal for the external antenna. One of the attached pictures shows the yellow electrical tape I used. This way I could use the external power and the included antenna.

More details and pictures can be found here: http://travelhintsandtips.com/road_trip.php

Pros
It can fit in the arm rest of a car (at least it fits in mine)
It can easily be stored in the glove compartment
It can be used similar to a walkie talkie
Access the 10 NOAA weather radio channels
The battery life is excellent

Cons
The range isn't as good as a normal CB but an external antenna can help that

I would (and have) recommend this to my friends.

I was somewhat of a novice when purchasing my CB radio, but as it was needed for work, I wanted something inexpensive but well-rated. I purchased the Midland 77-822 and paired it with a Little Wil base loaded antenna for my truck. Initially I was reaching people only a few miles away, and although I need only to communicate with trucks a few hundred yards away, I wanted something that I could use for a more extended range. I did not know this initially but you need to "tune" your CB radio to your antenna, and to do it you need a meter, it's called a Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) meter. So, FYI for all you newbies out there, you need to do this. Once I went to Radio Shack and bought one of those (they're cheap) I was on my way to properly tuning the darn thing (which amounts to shortening or extending your antenna to adjust the SWR). I was able to obtain an SWR reading of somewhere between 1.5 - 2.0 for every channel from 1-40, and again for you newbies that's decent. I am reaching people as far as 20+ miles away, they sound clear and they tell me I sound clear. The NOAA weather function is great too, my job involves supervising snow plow teams, so having access to the NOAA weather stations is awesome. I do have one complaint, the backlit display shuts off after like 30 seconds and there is no way to keep it on permanently. This is a pain in the rear when I am using the CB for fun, because the radio scans channels and stops on a broadcast, and you don't know what channel you're listening to without activating the buttons to turn on the backlight. Otherwise, this CB is Awesome, I HIGHLY recommend it.
