Ultra-Compact 40-Channel CB Radio

ANL Switch and Squelch Control

While communicating, flip on the ANL (automatic noise limiter) to help eliminate background noise, such as that from the car engine/etc. The squelch control also assists with eliminating noise, allowing you to set a threshold level below which noise won't be heard.

Full 40 Channel Operation

The Pro510XL will operate on any of the 40 AM frequencies authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). A superheterodyne circuit with phase locked loop technology assures precise frequency control.

Signal/RF Meter

Adjust the gain to boost your signal level, and get a visual readout on the meter.

Style Name: PRO520XL
This is a very nice CB in a small package. It installed under the dash and did not get in the way. Do not be misled by the compact size and low price. The final output power of the Uniden Pro520xl is four watts, the maximum allowed by the FCC for CB radios. All CB radios are rated at a maximum four watts, including the larger more expensive models. With the larger more expensive radios you only get more features, such as analog meters and fancy lights that you cannot see while driving anyway. The trade off is that the larger radios are much more difficult to install in late model cars, SUVs and trucks.
The pro 520xl features subdued modern styling and does not look like a left over from the 1970s. The controls are conviently located and easy to use while driving. A draw back, however, was the short microphone cord that took some getting used to. If you buy this or any other CB radio, do not use a "cel-phone" style glass mounted antenna. The glue on antennas look good but are very poor performers without exception. If you must use a glass mounted antenna, do not key up the microphone. The high SWR and electrical inefficiency may very well damage your new radio.
The Uniden Pro520xl, hooked up to a properly installed three foot Firestick II antenna had a 1.5:1 SWR on channels 1, 20 and 40 right out of the box. If you want to find out just how useful a CB radio can be on vacation or during the morning commute, purchase the Pro520xl.

Style Name: PRO505XL Verified Purchase
I drive a weekly commute of around 180 miles each way, often at early morning hours, and have often thought about installing a CB to hear the trucking traffic all around me, but never had a real reason to until recently when I was going to be embarking on a fishing trip off in the woods with others who had CBs installed. So I bit the bullet and got this little unit. Installation was simple, though it could have used more wire (I lucked out; the previous owner had had an amp in the back of the Jeep and left the wiring, so I just used that). Everyone that has seen it has commented on how good it looks in the truck, and how it looks like standard equipment.

Coupled with a cheap Roadpro 36inch Magnet Mount CB Antenna Kit With Spring 17feet Coax Cable Base Loaded RP-707, I've been getting great reception while on the road, and every radio check I've done it has been commented how I'm "coming in real good". During my recent fishing trip, my buddy, using a circa-1979 emergency portable CB, could hear me almost three miles away, through woods and mountains.

They say that if you have $100 to spend on a CB, spend $20 of it on the CB and $80 on the antenna. If that's the case, you can't go wrong with this little radio.

Style Name: PRO510XL
I am partial to Uniden anyway, however this CB is great for a first time user or as a back up to a more expensive unit. I have been using CB for about 10 years and I always make sure I have a Uniden 510 available for a back up, or use it in a second car. It has superior range when used with a good antenna and the received audio is decent. I would suggest using an external speaker unless you have a super quiet vehicle. The anl switch cuts through static really well to improve reception, although it sometimes dulls out the audio of the person you are trying to hear. You can use it with a cigarette lighter plug with an adapter from radio shack for a few dollars. They will even show you how to hook it up. It all boils down to being a great CB at a great price. Remember a simple rule of thumb... An inexpensive CB on a good antenna will perform just as well as a high-end CB on a cheap antenna. Don't forget to tune your antenna and have fun!

Style Name: PRO520XL
I had bought this radio at a Radio Shack store in town when we went to visit my dad in Indiana last Christmas. I had only bought it because my old Radio Shack cb I have had for about 8 1/2 years had died on me on the way there. I Bought the 520Xl and hooked it up to my SWR meter with my 3 ft Firestik antenna with magnet mount I had on the back, and right off, i never had to make an adjustment at all, because I had a SWR reading between 1:0 and 1:5. I used this radio on the way back, and was able to reach people up to 5 miles away, which was great! unfortunatly on the way back, I had to take my antenna off because everytime a semi passed us on the road, it would blow my antenna off the truck. When I got home, I took my CB to a cb shop near by and had it peaked and tuned, so now it gets 14 watts out instead of 7, and I can talk over 15-20 miles on a clear day. I did however switch antennas to a K40 3 ft antenna with adjustable sleeve that I had for years, and it works about the same. Get the radio, get you a good quality antenna like Firestik, K40, Wilson, or another good name brand. If you know somebody who can do it, get it peaked and tune, or take it to a cb shop and have them do it, and you will get somebody surely everytime you talk. Well worth the money, sorry about rambling on, but I felt if I shared experiences, it would help.

One more thing is that I know 4 truck drivers that have this CB in their trucks over a big Cobra, and they love the size and availability of the radio.

Get the Uniden 520xl, get a quality antenna, get a peak and tune if availble, and get talking!! You won't regret it.

I hope to talk to some of you soon. If you are ever on I-24 between Exit 110-121, give me a call and see if my radio is on. My handle is Hoosier in the South.
