Excellent radio, excellent value
This review is from: MIDLAND 1001LWX Walky-Talky
Pros: This radio has features few radios have at this price point. This radio has a noise limiter, which reduces certain environmental noises, such as spark plug and fan noise. An RF gain control is included which will reduce receiver sensitivity in high noise/interference areas. The weather radio/scan is effective. The hysterisis type squelch will ignore short noise bursts and allow you te hear another station talking even if they chop out, which is common for people who have their radios butchered to turn down the carrier. This can be tricky for people not used to this type of squelch control. It has an electret type microphone, which I prefer for its better sound quality and sensitivty. The radio powers on with channel 19 selected which is great. radios that power on to channel 9 are annoying. It also does not include a useless channel 9 button.. another plus. Transmit and receive audio is excellent, perfect for my needs. Transmit and receive ranges are right where they are expected for a legal, FCC approved CB radio. The modern style is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Cons: None Found
Other Thoughts: This radio has a common 4 pin mic connector. It is unknown if the common "Cobra" style microphones will work. The higher quality electret elements are used in the stoc mic, so it is unknown if the more common dynamic mikes will work. At any rate, the stock microphone is more then sufficient for this radio. Many review sites indicate issues with weather reception. Used correctly, there are no issues. All in all a great radio. This is a good piece of communications equipment that will serve any person well who understands what this radio is designed for.
