Having a CB radio while traveling can be an invaluable tool for emergencies and for keeping up on road conditions, and the Midland 75-820 40-channel handheld CB is one you should definitely consider. It comes with everything you need to get started in a hurry, including a battery pack for times you want to run the unit on six AA batteries and a cigarette lighter adapter for battery-free operation in your car.
Ultra-Portable CB and Weather Radio
40-Channel CB Radio
The 75-822 offers 40 separate communication channels, delivering the maximum CB communication range with 4 watts of output power.
Channel scan can automatically check all channels for activity, stopping on any active channel for five seconds. You can also store and instantly access up to five of your favorite channels in memory. When you flip on the device, a last channel memory feature will turn on the last channel you selected before powering off.
While communicating, a built in ANL (automatic noise limiter) improves reception for weak signals, and squelch control further eliminates background noise.
Weather Radio/Emergency Channel Convenience
The 75-822 features instant access to NOAA Weather Radio, for weather/hazard information in your area 24/7. Immediate access to emergency channel 9 and informational channel 19 is also provided. The Dual Watch feature lets you monitor channel 9 and another channel of your choice simultaneously.
Power With AA Batteries or Vehicle Power Port
You can power this unit with six AA batteries, complete with a battery life extender feature. To get even more from your batteries, high/low transmit power settings are provided (4 watts and 1 watt, respectively).
A mobile adapter is also included for powering directly from your vehicle’s “cigarette lighter” power port.
Easy to Use
The 75-822 boasts a large, backlit multifucntion LCD display that’s easy to read, day or night. A keypad lock feature “locks in” your preferred settings, so they aren’t accidentally changed. The flexible antenna with BNC connector is easily removed for transport, and an external headset jack is provided for hands-free use.
