nutmegger1957: What's the "talkback" function for? I didn't have that feature on my old CB from years ago. What Antenna do you recommend for this radio?

THE GUY: I didn't know there was a big enought market for them

ken jorgensen: Lovely radio..you need 2 antenna for 27 mhz and a antenna for 134.00-174mhz vhf....a smal antenna tuner also helps..giving better reseption on weather

Miguel Parrilla: Do some body know what is different between cb and ham .. Or they sell radios with both stuff ... I'm new on radios I'm from Ontario California I just have a hand cb the road trip cb ... 

Kenneth Colbert: Witch pot do you turn for the weather to turn it so it will recive better?It's been a while cents I have been on a CB I use LSB and USB the most.I really hope you reply to my post thanks.

Pajama Prepper: My Cobra 18 WX ST 2 is on its death bed and I'm planning on upgrading to the Uniden BC-980 for my base station and then the Uniden Pro505XL for mobile. I have a Uniden Bearcat BC355 scanner. I'm big on Uniden because their prices are great and the product you get is top of the line. I have 6 years of experience using Uniden marine radios, CBs and scanners and I recommend Uniden to new and seasoned operators and hobbyists. 

Yessua Ceballos: Good video! a question that you used to measure antenna standing waves? I have a horizontal dipole and me 1.00 mark across the CB band, but still does not mark full bars in TX.

Frank Crowe: Looking for amp for my radio in Columbus ga help

Nunya Dambidniss: Is this the current best deal for a traditional/domestic CB/SSB? Am looking to get into the hobby here and 150-200$ is my price range:)

JaKBaLL TV: sweet rig

Sean Ingram: I hope it will fit my HAVIS console :)

gary greenstein: What's the point of that the main thing put the thing on so people can hear it moron 

rowdyraider556: Expanded channel mod?

impalafarmer: Kinda wondering if you connected a dual-band antenna to this for CB AND WX or just a CB antenna? If it was just a CB antenna that would be the reason why you didn't receive well on the WX band.


CorrosiveOne: CB isn't worth talking on in my area..... That is a nice rig though, I used to run an HR-2510.

Unit525: Thank you for the video. Plus LOVE your site. Very upfront & no bull. This rig is really impressive. Love the colors you can choose.

torchgun: My ears hurt. Don't listen through the blue tooth....

carla Moore: My husband is a truck driver and I was thinking about getting this radio for him and having it peeked and tuned by a CB shop. He also has a Wilson 5000 antenna do you think this will perform his needs? do you have any idea what the distance he should get for receiving and output? PLEASE HELP!

David Salt: I love the scan feature.

josh lowell: looking for some place that you will be happy with google 440 cb tech best cb shop in tn.

L S Coker: In the memory scan mode can you also program in what mode you want to listen as well as the channel? i.e. program channels 9 and 19 in AM and channels 35 and 38 in LSB so when you scan these 4 channels, you do not have to change the operating mode manually.?

Kerry Wackwitz: Why does one comment say"JUNK",What is it to say that??thnx...kerry

BeingRomans829ed: I'd like to have one of these rigs installed at my ham shack. Not a lot of folks on CB around where I live, so I think the scan feature would be a nice option to have in order to quickly find the operators that actually are on the band. I also like the fact that you can choose ANL and NB both independently and together.

Todd J.: so what one would you recommend out of the two ? bearcat 980 ssb or cobra 29lx

Kurt Snider: 980 ssb Clarifier mod see my videos

Todd J.: would you say its better than the cobra 29LX or 29LX BT ?

Stewart Perthou: I have this radio with the beep removed and it preforms great! I did the mod my self in under 5minutes. Of course its all bout the antenna. I use an Antron A99 with GP on a 50ft mast. I recieve from all over the country, well over 2000 miles.

BirdWhisperer46: Been 20 years since I did any trucking, so either I forgot, or never thought about it, but will the external speaker jack on the back work for headphones?

cbradiomagazine: Regarding everyone's comments about my complaints about the RX ability of the radio on the VHF weather bands. 1) Yes, I am well aware that you would possibly have better results with a VHF antenna tuned for the weather bands. 2) Most people don't run CB radio's hooked up to a VHF antenna so my test describes real world results with a CB antenna. 3) My complaints regarding it's ability are a comparison to other CB radios with the same features also being tested on the same CB antenna.

TheZeke1974: I heard its unmodifiable...

kf4dcy: i truly hate menu driven radios with a passion. give me a knob any day, every day. i guess i'm a boat anchors man. but most menu driven are step staged settings. i like smooth variability in transitions.

isaanman: There is now a video on YouTube that shows how to disable the beep. It works. I just did it to mine.

Thorny8: Does anyone know how to turn down the squelch on the weather channels, I'm having the same issues the OP was having.

BRIAN LOGAN: Love my Bearcat 980 ssb! After My mild tuneup : I made a contact 550 miles away on lsb 38. The report was loud and clear. ZERO DRIFT. BEWARE GALAXY!!!

20spurSAT: -------------Propagation---------

fordbroncodave: you didn't show us how to adjust from AM to ssb and the clarifier adjustment

ZON1611: Jay - This radio has a bit of punch for a beginner but it leaves you with something to grow into. Follow the directions in getting the radio set up and have fun. Have someone who has been around CB awhile help to get your antenna set up and checked out.

Radninja88: What 2-Meter antenna are you using? are you using ground radials on your CB antenna?

Norm Rohrer: Just bought it. Love it! Sounds great. Buy this radio, use a Wilson 1000 Magnetic.

cbradiomagazine: Yes the RF gain is adjustable, I forgot to show it in the video but it works very similar to the Mic gain adjustment and it is variable.

mrbigshot29: 2nd

Kevin Vaughn: Great video, Now I want one! I have a few SSB radios but these supposedly kick ass and are SMALL. I had the 29lx and the beeps are way quieter in the vehicle than they sound in this video. They don't even bother you.

MrSlicer2424: I hate to agree with you guys about the beeps , they are a deal breaker ! damn

Stewart Perthou: You can disable the beep. It requires a simple internal mod and problem solved! See the Uniden Beep removal mod on Youtube.

stealthop: damn that beep is annoying

BRIAN LOGAN: Need the schematic to locate and disable active device.

BRIAN LOGAN: My WX works excellent on the frequency in my area . There is a adjustment internally but I did not touch. Running antron 99.

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
