Found an old realistic 40 channel TRC-453 to use for the trail get togethers. Paid 4.00 and got the CB, mike, power cord, bracket, and magnetic antenna. The power cord connector was loose but I did get the unit to power up. I could hear people talking with the squelch way up, I doubt the reception range is very large with the 24" antenna but I'm hoping it will work out good for off-roading. I know squat about CB's but this one does have LSB and USB, squelch, RF gain, and clarifier. I figure for the money it's good enough. Paul, you have any opinions on this thing? Anyone else?
