Hey, Citizen's Band radio didn't die just because everyone has a cell phone now. It's still the affordable technology of choice for truck drivers, campers, and anyone else who needs two-way broadcast capabilities.
Cobra has been making CBs for ages, so they know what you need in a unit, and they know how to do it right. With the full legal four watts of power, SWR calibration lets you more closely match your antenna. It has public address capabilities, variable brightness backlit displays, a nine foot microphone cord, and tactile controls you can FEEL so you don't need to take your eyes off the road.
But that's not all: you also get to receive seven NOAA weather channels, AND there's an emergency alert for bad weather that sounds even when the unit is turned off. This could very well be your next CB. Check it out and decide!
Cobra 29-WX NW ST Classic
Pros: Dimmable Back Light
Cons: Weather alert
Other Thoughts: I bought this thinking it would be a lot better than my Radio Shack Realistic TRC 428 that I bought in 1982. They are almost identical I figured there would have been a vast improvement in the 30years since then, but I was mistaken. I am using a magnetic mount Weather capable antenna on my van that is supposed to be for this unit.

Thinking about buying as exact replacement
Pros: * Owned for several years - since 1999
Cons: * Size, but that is easily remedied in cars
Other Thoughts: Thinking about getting a new one and while the one I got, I will give to my dad for his truck.

Pros: GREAT SOUND, EASY TO INSTALL AND USE, MANY FEATURES. THE WEATHER RADIO WITH THE BUILT IN S.A.M.E. HAS SAVED ME FROM GETTING WET MANY TIMES.
Cons: LITTLE BIG FOR MOST CAR INSTALLATIONS, BUT EASY TO FIGURE OUT WITH A LITTLE IMMAGINATION.
Other Thoughts: COBRA RADIOS KICK THE COMPETIONS OUT OF THE WATER WHEN IT COMES TO C.B.'S

Recomended to everyone
Pros: Easy to use, very good visibility at night, excellent sound quality. Manufacturer's description of the product could not be more accurate.
Cons: don't forget about a high quality antenna, without it this unit is useless. Unit does not have a PFC filter installed so you might get some noise if your power source has a transformer somewhere in the power chain. but that can be easily fixed with a small upgrade.
