CB Radio

I am looking to get a CB Radio, just in case of emergency or when i go on trails. I don't need anything super fancy. Any recommendations?

Love the Uniden 520xl. I run mine with a 4' Firestik. Great trail-use CB.

Cobra 75 is small and works good.

I have a Bearcat 680. It's a smaller CB and with the antenna tire holder, it works great.

I had ran the Uniden 510 for years with a TF antenna mount and 4' firestick. never had a problem.

currently changing to a Cobra 18 now to mount it in the dash instead of on top
