    I need a very affordable CB. My current CB is a 24 channel that I found in the bottom of a trunk that my mom inherrited. I think it's about 30 years old and not sure if it works. Any suggestion's.

    If you are just looking for a basic 40 channel CB and nothing fancy, go Uniden.. You can get one for around $30-$200.... These would be your best bet!

    I'm not so sure about Uniden. I have a handheld that's defective and I can't reach tech support.

    Go down to Radio Shack. I picked up a 40-channel TRC-442 Sport model made by Radio Shack for $50. Works good, and anything I've ever had that was made by Radio Shack is very good quality for the price, and they're not too bad about fixing defective things either.

    79 K5 Blazer Cheyenne.... That's all I have to say about that.

    I won't get started on my problems with Radio Shack CBs. Been through 3 of em. They were all under warranty (I bought the extended plan). I don't think they could handle the rough ride.

    I got a damn good Cobra at a truck stop for 120.

    I've got a mind like a . . . a . . . what's that thing called?

    How come nobody runs Midland's? I'd recommend a midland like I've got in my rig, a Weather Max (mine I can adjust channels up and down with the buttons on top of the mic), either that or a Uniden Pro 538 like I run in my boat! Nothing wrong with either if you run em through an swr and tune 'em to a K-40 or Wilson 1000!
    Plus they both have front firing speakers, a plus for listening in to weather channels with straight pipes at 65 or 75 mph.
    Later all,
