Based on favorable reviews by Uphill and others, I set out recently to buy that exact radio. Couldn't find it at Best Buy or other retail outlets, so I went to a well-known trucker's radio shop in the next county west of me. They had the Midland 75-822 but told me that it can't be "tuned" (have the output wattage boosted) like many other radios. But I wanted a hand-held because I didn't want it permanently mounted in the cab.I would like to know what you guys out there think would be a good cb. I was thinking of the Midland 75822. Which would have the best range.
X2!!The most important thing to tune is the antenna installation.
With no adjustment or incorrect adjustment, you could actually harm your radio by using it to transmit.
