Midland is one of those "old names" in Citizen Band history, with a reputation for tough, reliable gear. And that's who is making this walkie-talkie with all the bells and whistles. With ten weather/hazard channels in addition to the regular 40 CB channels, you can pick up emergency alerts about hazardous conditions (where available.)
You have instant access to five user-selectable channels, plus instant access to channel 9. You can monitor two channels simultaneously, and you can scan your most-used channels. With a vehicle adapter, external antenna and external microphone, you can even mount it in your car like a panel-mount unit.
Hand-held yet mountable, extremely versatile in its monitoring capabilities; how can you resist? Whether emergency comm gear or just for camping, this unit will really come in, er, "handy".
Pros: Hand held and Vehicle radio. Gets some good distance, got this little sucker for Christmas along with two firestick 3' antennas and it gets great reception and has good range.
Cons: Included hand held antenna doesn't have much range but does the job.
Other Thoughts: It doesn't say it in the manual at least I didn't see it in their but if you hold the function button down until it beeps it will show the channel frequency and not the channel number just a cool little feature. Also the NOAA weather radio works great. Gonna buy a few more for airsoft once I get some cash.

Pros: Works the way it is supposed to. Solid build, attractive design. i have the kit that includes the power adapter and antenna lead. I have a magnet mounted antenna from RS. works good. Works fine with out additional antenna. I put batteries in it when I bought it and have not had to replace them yet. I have left it on for hours and hours and it keeps going. Very handy on the highway.
Cons: Back light goes out too soon. Would be nice if it could stay on as an option.
Other Thoughts: Fits in cup holders, packs away easily for security and no holes drilled etc in vehicle for mounting.
