Customer Questions & Answers

Hello - Can This Unit Be Used As a Base Station

Can This CB/Radio Be Used As A Base Station. Plugging It Into 120 Volts
Asked by: Howardr1124
You will need a twelve volt power supply of five amps or more. Depending on where you buy it the power supply will run you $35 to $45. R and L electronics has some of the best prices I've found for power supplies.

what is the best antenna

hi I was just wondering if anyone is using this radio in there pickup which antenna would yall recommend going with fend mount or bed if its better
Asked by: crazyhog
An good Mobile mount antenna is a little Wilson, you can find them for $35 or so. Almost every truck stop and CB shop will have them. The Wilson line will have more expensive options but the performance compared to the price for the better models really isn't much better.

CB Radio with SSB is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.

These are mostly for projects with my kids to learn about signal propagation, basic electronics, etc. These are really great radios with only a feature or two that I don't use. Love the built in SWR meter and power meters, they function as well as my outboard meters. Mic gain is good, and adjustable, but I haven't tried a power mic. The plastic face of the radio scratches easily. The display settings are nice, but the radio has to be directly facing you to read it. My setup in the mobile is such that the display isn't facing me directly and it's very hard to read. I've had a few radios over the years and I like these the best, by far. You can probably get nicer radios, but you will paying much more.

It has a built in SWR meter and weather channels. The color scheme is configurable with easy to read face. I do wish the bracket that came with it had 2 mounting holes on the side instead of just one however.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice radio Upon receiving my Bearcat 980 SSB radio, I was pleasantly surprised to find a very nicely packaged, very functional and attractive modern CB radio, It does everything I could ask it to do. The user interface is simple, it's easy on the eyes, and it's surprisingly quiet on receive. The product was as advertised, delivered quickly, and priced right... No complaints at all.
