656565 656565: JUST ANOTHER PRETTY FACE....BUT THIS RADIO SUXX

656565 656565: LOOKS GOOD. TALKS LOUSY. LOW MODULATION & TRANSMIT

656565 656565: AVOID THIS RADIO. IT'S JUNK...SERIOUSLY ONE OF THE WORST RADIOS I HAVE EVER OWNED AFTER THE COBRA 135. NOT A GOOD BUY!

Pied Piper of Arizona: I bought one of these radios last week. I have been using it for a week now with an RM Italy KL-503, and an RM Italy 203P. I have been talking all over the country and get very clear receive an transmit modulation. I have tested my radio by leaving one on at home and recording my voice as I drive way out into the country. I can hear it clear for over 20 miles with the cheapest RM Italy. I can hear it over 30 miles with the big bad boy RM Italy.

The options on this radio are what sold me. I love the scan feature the most. I also love the fact it is a true 12-watt SSB Lower and Upper. The radio is actually very big. It will not fit in all car dashes that is for sure. I have to slide mine between my seats and that works just fine for me. I have a big space between the driver side and passenger side and it slides right in there nicely. Also, the SWR meter is very acurate. I compared to my Workman and they give me almost the same exact numbers back. So, you can trust what the SWR meter is telling you on this radio. I also like the diagnostic features. I can check my antenna and RX as well. It also checks the voltage. I was surprised mine was a little low, 13.44 volts and should be 13.8 volts. It is still within specifications, but nice to know my car battery is not throwing out quite the full voltage. I am looking at rerouting my power cable. Currently plugged into the cigerette lighter which should work fine, but maybe not?

That is my 2 cents on this radio. Great buy on Amazon for 105.00 dollars. The Galaxy SSB radio is 170.00 by comparison. I do think this competes with the Galaxy but maybe not the President SSB radio or the Stryker. I like it better than the Cobra models I have seen and owned. 73

thomas glandon: how do I adjust the Rf gain on the 980 ssb ? I have tried what the book said but with out success .

Rick Via: I bought 6 of these 980s on Ebay in February 2017. I use 2 as base stations, 4 as mobiles. They are flashy as heck, bells and whistles out the ass, and put in a vehicle for nighttime use, they're ok. They have a very high noise floor, unreadable display in daylight, a very weak MOSFET final output transistor (I've replaced 3 finals in the 2 base radios thus far - fortunately the devices are cheap). I know what I'm doing - been doin it for 45+ years. This radio is a piece of crap. Uniden shouldn't put their name on it (they don't actually manufacture it, do they?).

Agoraphobic Adam: Hello friends, I have a question.Will the memory scan let you scan the different bands at the same time.Example: Chanel 6 am and Chanel 38 lsb. Any help would be appreciated.

mememojo: The weather male robot voice sounds alright there, ours here in south texas sounds like a castrated effeminate male robot, I can't stand it.

WD4ED: Wx function is gonna be poor without the proper antenna.

Michael Waddell: On the Uniden Bearcat 980 SSB radio how can the beep sound be turned down as to not be so loud

Pat Pikulski: What is "talk back"?

poikaa3: Last Friday at a pilot station this radio is on sale for less than $100! May be as the new McKinley USA is out....

A68170: Where does a person go to have a CB "tuned up" ?

Roger Johnson: had my 980 for 2 years now and love it , got rid of stock mic and upgrade to a four pin mic , way better

danny blackhorse: I wonder where on earth can I find a schematic diagram or service manual for this radio
