If you are looking for an inexpensive, no frills CB package that will just get the job done, look no further. This CB kit includes everything you need to get up and running at a minimal cost. At the same time, we are not skimping on quality. The radio and antenna in this kit are good quality. You will get good range and clear transmissions.
The radio in this package is the Uniden PRO510XL. This is a small radio that will stand up to challenging environments. This radio is inexpensive because it doesn't include the extra features found on more expensive models. It includes a volume, squelch, and a noise limiter. The very basics for CB communications. It still outputs the same 4 watts as any other CB on the same 40 channels. This radios measures 1 3/8" H x 4 1/2" W x 6 3/4" D.
CB Antenna Kit
The CB antenna kit in this package includes a 3 foot fiberglass whip, aluminum 3 way mounting bracket, and a 9 foot coax. The antenna is pre-tuned for the shorter coax. You should still check your SWR, but you're trying to save some money. If you are talking to other CBer's, one of them probably has an SWR meter you can borrow! This antenna is less expensive because the coax is short, and the antenna is basic with no tunable tip.
The mounting bracket in this kit can be installed on any horizontal or vertical post up to 1 inch in diameter, or used as an L bracket by removing the back plate. This makes it a very versatile mount.
