I was just sort of passively looking to get into CB radios, so I don't know much about anything but the product looks really slick it's pretty easy to wire into your fuses or battery. Comes with everything you need to mount it onto your car. I can't really speak to the quality other than I can hear crazy trucker wacked out on speed mumbling into their radios whenever I want now.

for $40 it works like it's supposed to. Lightweight, compact, simple to use. It doesn't have the bells and whistles that other more expensive units have, but it hits the mark at $40. It turns on and makes noise when people talk to you...what more could you want from a $40 radio.

Rec'd the radio and liked the size and features. I noted that the instruction manual omitted the "RF Gain" description (in English-- it was there in Spanish but my Spanish is not that good!)

Wired it up and tested before installing mounting brackets. Digital display was defective. Showed about half of the numerals. This shows a real lack of quality control by the manufacturer.

While I think the radio would have been OK, this rather glaring fault prompted me to return it and I will find something else for a replacement. Volume was low and when turned higher was pretty scratchy. I think you can find a better inexpensive radio-- I am going to look for one. I had a Cobra in my truck and after five years of bouncing all over the country it was still going strong when I sold the truck. Think I'll go back that direction!

The radio came well packed and quickly. It is ok for a CB radio. No complexities, just a simple CB. Good for beginners as there is no complicated knobs, switches, or meters to mess with or get confused over.
NO SSB, NO super Amplifier, NO ECHO or weird sound effects built in...just a legal beagle CB, mike, and mounting kit.

Look at it as a Zen CB radio...communications in a small black box...Namaste!

P.S. Make sure your antenna is tuned with a good SWR meter to ensure your getting the most from this little guy!

This is the only radio I could fit into my 2013 Dodge Avenger without it getting in the way. If you are going to run it off of a cigarette lighter you need to run a ground wire off of the chassis of the radio to the chassis of the car for best performance. It has RF Gain which is a big plus for a radio this small. The only thing smaller are the handheld CB units. I am using a K40 K-30 Antenna with good reports on the highway. Probably 5 miles out or so. You can probably do better with a longer, better antenna but this one and the Lil Wilson will mount to my trunk without scraping the garage ceiling when I park. If to you don't have an SWR meter you need to order one. All antennas need to be tuned for performance and to protect your CB from damage.

I had a CB radio mounted in the Ford Explorer, which now has gone to Explorer heaven. The radio I had was small and I mounted it on the side of the console hump on the driver side - but... it was too big for me to find a place to mount it easily in my new Grand Cherokee. So I order this little guy. I attached a couple of adhesive hooks (the kind you use to hang things on a wall) and connected ity inside my console, which contained a 12V power outlet. It fits just fine and when I want to use it, I lift the console lid and a hook it to the side of the console. It works fine. I use it primarily for trips on the interstate when I sense trouble ahead. It receives truckers' communication from a mile or two up the road - enough to get the info on potential holdups.

Only use it when off-road with buddies, the radio does a nice job sending/receiving. I added an overhead speaker and a clip for the dash. The stock bracket works great, added a Workman SWR Meter and firestick antena to complete the package. I mounted it on the passender side on the consol, ran wire under the carpet, through the firewall directly to the battery. Antena cable under carpet, up the side beam to the roll bar through the tailgate door. Turned out great.
