Solid Radio
Paired with a Wilson Antenna, received and transmitted good to a range of five miles in AM mode. I like the features of the radio because they are not overly complex, while still providing a lot of options. The display is not super bright in the daylight, but gets the job done. The inside looks like a motherboard of computer, rather than a rats nest of wires by similar competitors. Looks and performs great, at reasonable price point for a SSB Radio. Overall a solid radio, with well thought out engineering.

The sideband channels did not work.
All of the sideband channels had a squeal to them. Also when I tried to talk to people they said it was squealing and screeching on the air too.

UNIDEN 980SSB CB RADIO

Good radio right out of the box. It works well and is on frequency for SSB use. This CB becomes very unique with the purchase of the wireless microphone option also made by Uniden (BC906W). Wireless mic works well 300 ft. from the CB. THATS RIGHT 100 METER RANGE. The CB has duel clarifer for coarse and fine adjustment but only works on receive Transmit for SSB is factory set. YOU HOPE

Great cb radio

I haven't used a cb radio in over 20 years but I suddenly got the urge to get one. I wanted one that looks more modern to go with my new truck. I've very happy with this cb radio although I'm no expert on them. It matches well with the modern vehicles and I enjoy the multicolor options. It performs well. If you're into modding these cb radios I'm not sure what you can or can't do with these. Others have complained about the "beep" being to loud but I don't think it's loud, then again I have mine mounted into the dash so maybe that has something to do with it. I have not had a chance to test the range but it seems to do well and it comes across loud and clear. If you're looking for good preformance out of the box and more of a modern look this cb radio is for you. I'd recommend this to my friends and family.

Excellent Radio

Radio Dead keys 3 watts and swings 11 watts Am right out of the box--Perfect for driving low drive linears----nice color choice and frequency counter--swr readout--built in talkback--and mic gain---Lots of extras for a strictly 11 meter rig

Best price

Great price can't be beaten anywhere else, truck stops try to sell it at the same price!! But wait for the catch? You have to mail in a rebate after paying $180 out of pocket, who got time for that.

1. That depends on many factors---mobile or base?? Height and type of antenna Quality of coax and coax Pl 259 ends Grounding situation Power Mike ?? Or stock
by WORLDWIDE357MAGNUM
2. Depends on your antenna, I have received and transmitted over five miles in AM Mode (4Watts). SSB (12WAtts) should yield even greater ranges. With a well tuned antenna with low VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio) i.e. all power from the radio is radiated from the antenna and not reflected (HF) frequencies have been known to propagate over vast distances.

3. Range will vary on each environment & depending on terrain.

by WORLDWIDE357MAGNUM
2. The unit is 4watts for CB & 12watts for SSB.
by TeamUniden
3. 4 watts in AM (Amplitude Modulation), 12 watts (SSB in Single Side Band), this is the maximum allowable by FCC.
