  • More Details

A compact "hide-away" CB, with all the controls contained in the "microphone". The main box can be hidden away out of sight.

The radio comes with a 2m extension cable to extend the reach of the microphone up to 3 meters from the main unit (the microphone has a 1m cable), allowing you to place the radio in different parts of the car, such as under a seat.

Although compact, the radio has just about every feature you could ask for - accessed through the buttons and menus on the handset.

The radio is "multi-standard" to cover both the UK band and all other European bands.

A unique feature is the "twin speaker system" - in the past this type of radio has had very poor sound quality on receive due to the small speaker in the handset. This radio also has a speaker in the main unit, both of which work together to give you excellent sound. There is also the facility for an external speaker.

Ideal where space is limited or if you just don't want a CB on show.
