      Comments about Cobra® Mini Handheld CB Radio with Weather Stations:

      Very disappointed...bought it for a long highway trip and couldn't use it. No where on the website did it indicate we also had to have an antenna on the car...thought it was an all in one piece of equipment. If I had known that might have just purchased a regular cb. Now just waiting for Radio Shack to refund the money.

      Decent Handheld CB

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about Cobra® Mini Handheld CB Radio with Weather Stations:

            I do not personally own one, but i have a friend who has had this radio for years. And i looked over the reviews to see why anyone would give it less then 5 starts. It occurs to me that some people just may be a bit new to CB radios.

            CB radios are inexpensive and do not require a licence, therefore the channels can be crowded. They also use AM frequencies aroumd 27mhz. This causes a lot of static for CB radios in general. All CBs have this problem, which can limit distance.

            The antenna is equally as important as the radio. I use my handheld CBs to communicate with the outher guys and with trucks when we are plowing. Short distance stuff. My handheld with its 6 inch flex antenna can get a few blocks. My base station with the 25ft antenna on the roof can hit the next state. So this radio is great as far as a handheld CB goes, but if you need something better, look into Ham for recreational use, or your own radio frequency for buisness use.

                Comments about Cobra® Mini Handheld CB Radio with Weather Stations:

                The radio is terrific. Weather info is so useful. The antenna supplied is not meant to handle full CB capabilities or deliver that much power. You must buy an external antenna or mid-loading telescopic aerial antenna offered by RS. Any technician will tell you that the antenna is 90% of the XMIT/RCV process. This radio competes with most permanent installs mobile or base - any brand or model. PERIOD......

                  This unit was easy to use right out of the box. I first saw one on a m/c and asked the rider how he liked it. With his enthusiastic response, I went out and got one myself. Later I bought a second one as a gift for my brother. We all enjoy them as we can communicate on rides to improve our convoy safety. [...]
