40-Channel CB Radio

The 75-785 offers 40 separate communication channels, delivering the maximum CB communication range with 4 watts of output power. Tune in with pinpoint accuracy using on-board PLL channel selection.

While communicating, a built in ANL (automatic noise limiter) improves reception for weak signals, and squelch control further eliminates background noise. Transmissions on your end should be crystal-clear as well, thanks to the built-in electrostat microphone.

Powering Options

You can power the 75-785 with nine AA alkaline batteries for use on the go. Alternately, fill it with rechargeable nickel cadmium AAs, and use the charge jack to recharge them all without removing them from the radio.

Additionally, a DC charger is included for use with “cigarette lighter” power adapters in cars, trucks, boats, etc.

External Accessory Jack

Add Midland accesories, such as an external speaker box or headset mic, using this jack.

    Good Radio IF you understand its limitations Good radio IF you understand its limitations… After reading many of the reviews here I noticed a disturbing trend of people thinking that this radio would some how get hundreds of miles of range, underground in a steel and lead lined bunker. Or communicate with Neptune.

It will most likely have about a 1/2 mile range (that is about the distance I was at from the others) but again that was expected. Not pretty, small or…

I did not need long distances, but it was helpful to be able to get out and ‘spot’ for another driver while still being able to communicate with the radio.Because of the…
