this is a great compact cb. Basically any CB with 40 channels will do, but keep in mind, you get what you pay for.


Firestick antennas are also quite good.

Buncha junk I've spent hard earned money on.

Sorry I couldn't resist. It's the third grader in me coming out

You can get the 75 WX ST for 99.00 in a lot of places. Even Radio Crack marks them down now and then. I use FireStik antennas, good stuff.

A small CB that gets a lot of great reviews from Jeeper's would be the Uniden 520.

I highly recommend the Uniden 520. I have had a couple of them over the past 10 to 12 years. I don't think you could do much better than that and the size is ideal.
To all who serve, Thank You.

Add another vote for the Unidens, I use one in my big truck and it gets beat up, covered in dust, tossed from rig to rig and has lasted longer than any other radio.
I used to use Cobra's but the performance wasn't enough better to make up for price.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

Uniden or Cobra are the only ones I'd consider.

I went with a 75WXST simply because the mounting options are more flexible. The only thing to find a place for is a small box that is currently under my Tuffy, but moving to behind the dash soon. With an external speaker, it works perfectly.
