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.

    Great compact CB. A modification may be needed if you want to use the mobile adapter and included antenna at the same time. This is a really nice compact CB that works great for the occasional user. If you’re planing on using this on a daily basis I would recommend getting a regular CB if you have the room for it (I don’t think a trucker would be happy using this every day).Responding to the negative reviews that say something like “It didn’t work at all”, I wonder what “at all” means. I suspect some of those people may have tried to use the mobile adapter and the small included whip…

To those who complain about lack of range, yes, the range with the included flex rubber antenna will be far more limited than a correctly installed and “matched” external antenna especially if you’re trying to transmit from inside a metal box (in other words, your car).

    Great radio…rechargeable battery pack issues solved. I bought this radio for use on an upcoming road trip and will be continuing to test it over the next few days.

Handheld antenna is limited as expected but good for short line of sight communication and weather. Obviously not for use indoors or in a vehicle. I will be testing this unit with a magnetic mobile antenna this week and report findings…
