Looking for a good CB radio.
 
Im totally ignorant when it comes to CB radios. I dont know what all the frequencys or channels or any of that jargon means. If someone can direct me to a good cb radio or explain the scematics of these devil boxes.I would like to purchase one soon but i need to know how they work so i can buy a good one the first time.

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.

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.

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.

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.
