Johnny III Owner's Manual (Manual_President_Johnny_III_USA_ENG.pdf, 1,256 Kb) [Download]

Nice radio, like the features. The ASC is great. Would like for the on/off and squelch button to be larger. Overall I like this radio.
I am really enjoying this radio. The automatic squelch is phenomenal. Good color choices, though I don't care for blue lights. The blue is brightest, then the red, and green is the dimmest, which I like at night. In full sun, I can't really detect any color, but the large LCDs are easy to read.

The radio is very good for eliminating noise. It doesn't have the audio power of my big vintage radios, but is plenty adequate for my pickup. A noisy big rig might need an extension speaker near the driver's left ear. Weather radio has somewhat less volume, but is also adequate, and is getting good reception with a little US made K30 magnet mount.

Reception intelligibility is excellent, and better than any modern Cobra junk.

I don't use any of the fancy button features except for weather radio and color change, which are simple procedures.

The mic is tiny, which bugged me at first, but now I like it. It is smooth and lightweight, and feels and appears of the highest quality. The channel buttons on the mic have a splendid feel, and I like to change the channel with them. They did an old school imitation on the clicky channel knob, but nothing feels like a vintage knob. Nonetheless, it is a very good simulation of the vintage feel.

I had a small location available, and it was one of these or a Uniden 520. Almost twice the money, but I am glad I got the Johnny III, not only for the weather, but because static and noise is handled so well.

It doesn't quite have that heavy durable feel of the old radios, but is packed with nifty features, logical and intuitive controls, easy to read screen, good filtering, and a good looking businesslike appearance. The Uniden 505 is cheap, but doesn't have the features I need, and may have been as noisy as a 510 or 520. This is a nice radio. I am glad I spent the extra money.
