This CB was installed in my 2012 JK Unlimited in a Tuffy single-compartment overhead console! This is a sleek unit, with tons of "new age" technology, such as LCD displays with useful calibration tools built right in for SWR calibration and Antenna tuning!! It has a built in PA option, which of course is always fun to have :) The unit seems to be more powerful than some Cobra competition out there with out pulsing around 5W instead of the industry standard 4W. Couple this with a FireStik antenna, and you're ready to trail ride with ease while keeping in communication with the group! Highly recommended!!

Before purchasing this CB radio consider the following:
This is a modern 11 meter SSB CB radio designed for use in North America, not a 10 meter export radio. The radio chassis uses surface mount technology, you are not going to poke around in there with your Weller soldering gun and big ole screwdriver and make things work "gooder".
Forty channel sideband mobile radios built in the good old days would cost you close to double the price of what this radio is being sold for today.

I purchased this radio to be used in multiple cars with a mag mount antenna.
That means the radio is held in place to the center arm rest with a bungie cord and gets power from the lighter plug. It worked well during my vacation. The noise blanker did an excellent job of keeping auto electronics noise out of the receiver, where an older radio's noise blanker could not keep the noise out of its receiver in the same cars. I received good audio and signal reports from everyone I spoke with, using a D-104 hand microphone and the 6 pin to 4 pin adaptor that came with the radio. The factory mike is not up to the job. The radio came from the factory only producing 3.5 watts AM into a dummy load. Google is your friend. I came up with the info needed to adjust the correct pot to have the radio create up to 5 watts on AM. I didn't fool around with the SSB side. I'm not concerned about extra channels or unlocking the clarifier on a radio used in a vehicle, so I did not pursue those aspects or modification. The weather alert works very well. It is NOT a SAME code based weather alert, If NWS sends out the tone for ANY county the weather alert will trigger. Out of the box the radio beeps at you any time you press a button or twist any knob. That, to me, is very annoying.

This new uniden 40 channel cb ssb mobile radio is no doubt a winner except for the annoying beeping when performing functions as simple as changing channels . Radio output was down 2 watts on am and 6 watts on ssb as others have mentioned. We easily found the 2 pots inside the radio to adjust both power levels am to 4 watts and ssb to 12 watts . I will give it a 8 out of 10 and is a definite keeper .I now have plans to purchase another just to keep in the house sometime after xmas 2012 .

We was very happy to find that the sideband frequencies were aligned properly at the factory on lsb and usb.
I left the radio on for 48 hours to burn it in and there was no drifting period on sideband. The receiver was very quiet and when needed the noise blanker took out any noise . We easily heard a station on 38 lsb 50 miles away on our base antenna at the house for those wanting to try sideband at home.
While trying to talk locally in the midwest we had several stations in california commenting about the transmit audio quality of this 4 lb radio .Yes it is very light weight and will be a easy install in the car.

Below is a added plus in my book ........

Having the 7 noaa weather channels will be a plus on long trips to keep track of changing weather conditions on vacations with the weather alert function .We took a vacation trip to Wyoming last year and ran right into bad weather up in the high country of NW Nebraska 80+ mph winds . Had we had the weather warnings we could have avoided the 2 lane highway and stayed on the major I 80 interstate instead we was 50 miles up the road in the middle of no where before we seen what was headed right at us.
!!!If you want a radio that can be modified for extra illegal channels This is not your radio !!!

This is a nice looking radio but that's not the reason I purchased it. I've been using CB's for 40 years now and big fan of the Cobra 29. Recently my Cobra stopped working in my new RV after I swapped it from another. It was over 20 years old so that's OK. I started looking for a new CB and wanted something with the same features and a little more modern looking to match the new RV. After searching for a few weeks and reading all the reviews on different units I went with the Bearcat 880. There is a lot of new cb radios that just came out like the new LCD Cobra 29 but after checking them all out the 880 wins. It has all the features that my 29 had and more. The new cobra 29 was a close second but the unit is larger and the display is not as nice or as easy to read like the 880. Power is good and meters at about 3.89 watts out with a matched Wilson antenna. If your a Trucker then the Classic 29 is fine but if you want the same performance and a better, easier to read display day or night then the 880 is the one.
