The controls are also solid and no annoying beeps like you see on newer digital radios today. The finish and knobs feel solid and well built. The radio has a clean look to it and also has a real s-meter needle instead of vague led readouts! This seems to be the only model made today in this price class, that has a real needle based s-meter.
Now for the bad.. Keep in mind, this radio is priced quite low and they did cut corners in other areas however. The receive isn't solid or stable in other areas, however. It appears to have quite poor adjacent channel rejection (heck, it's probably more relevant to say adjacent "band" rejection, as just one semi-strong station takes out stations 30 to 40 channels away)! During the daytime, skip talking stations not only took out the locals that were a few channels away from the noisy channel 6 and 19, it even took locals out that were 10 to 30 channels away! The AGC also seems a little glitchy too. The channel "bleedover" occurs with or without the noise blanker on and even when trimming the RF gain down. Although this radio has one of the best noise blankers I've tested in a radio in quite awhile, it also has the worst adjacent channel rejection of any radio I've tested. I wished Midland would of priced this unit $20 to $30 higher, so they wouldn't of cut corners in this regard. Surely that could of spent a dollar or two and used a tighter filter, with better nearby frequency specs.. If you're like many of us whom have electrical noise issues in or even out of town, the noise blanker is quite spectacular in this model, however if there are semi-strong stations on other channels, the radio may be challenging to use. I would of been willing to pay double the current price if I could just find a cb radio with both a decent noise blanker and channel rejection.
Please Midland I hope you're listening to your customers and don't give up on CB radio completely.. Creating the cheapest priced radio isn't what many want when they choose a cb radio. They want something than can hear and talk well! Improve the receive rejection and this could be a real winner!
So if you wants bragging rights based on looks this unit is not for you. If you use your CB to help make a living and required a good solid unit at a fair price this unit is what you need.
