The radio works fine, albeit short on range. I think I have average sized male hands, and this thing is hard to hold and operate at the same time.

Recommended. Great quality for a compact CB. Perfect for most users. If you are a radio nerd get a full sized CB.

On the interstate to communicate with other travelers and truckers who can warn each other of potential travel problems. This unit is exactly as described. just the right size for the smaller tighter cabins in a smaller truck. I got in my tacoma.

Good, not perfect We use the unit in a Corvette, and there is no convenient place to mount a regular CB; the Cobra solves that problem nicely.

Works fine around the house. But 2 miles out on any channel HI or Low power could not hear each other.

Great, Compact CB I installed this CB in a newer Jeep Wrangler (JK). Worked for two weeks Handset is bulky and not comfortable to use. Speaker in handset sounded terrible while it worked. Very pleased with both Cobra and Amazon I bought this radio and the Cobra 1500 antenna. Both arrived 2 days later in perfect condition. Assembly.
