    Anybody have one? Are they any good? How is the reception compared to mobile CBs?

    This topic was just covered in one of the other forums.

    I had a Cobra model 45 somthing, the tiny one. It worked really well, but when you were in the vehicle it would probably have worked better with an external ant.

    I have a set and they seem to work well close distance but a external antenna would be a good idea.

    No good. The best distance you r going to get is a mile tops. What hppens when the battery goes dead and you need to talk when you r out playin around. And the cost is to much after you pay for 1 of those you could of got a great mounted radio.
