Default CB Radio

:?:
I am looking for a good, reasonable radio. Is there any place that sells refurbished or wholesale? I am interested in Connex, at least 3300. I don't have pikes of cash to spend. Any suggestions?[/size]

Also do a web search for CB radios. There are several shops that sell both new and used CB's.

Don't waste your money.

Get a Cobra 25 or 29. Midland and Uniden also make good radios.

Connex 3300 and the high power model along with the general lee are great radios, some of the best audio you can get, thicker pc boards, connex and general are not a waste of money. The question is do you want to spend the extra money.

I've torn apart and worked on most every brand of CB around today, and I can tell you that I don't see anything in a Connex that makes it worth the highly inflated price.

As for audio quality, that remains a mystery, since most every bozo with a Connex radio tends to crank the echo and reverb up way too high just to sound cool (at least he thinks he sounds cool)!

If drivers were concerned about good audio quality, they'd ditch the idiot echos and such in a heartbeat.

I have a Cobra 29 with no work done to it that works just fine for me with your standard Radio Shack antenna. Can talk crystal clear for at least 8-10 miles with my mobile unit.

Exactly right Highwayman, those with the echos and stuff need to get them off their radios. Can't understand a single thing they say so why have them?
