All of the radios look sharp and will fit well within the Uniden product line.
Uniden Bearcat BC880
The Bearcat BC880 is the most impressive radio in the new CB lineup. This radio has an host of features including NOAA weather, radio diagnostics, and variable talkback. While these features are great the most stunning feature has to be the massive display. The new LCD display takes up the majority of the radios face and easily displays all the information the CB user needs to see. Additionally there are seven different display colors to choose from so you can customize the look of your CB however you like. The new radio also features a 6 pin mic which is compatible with the new wireless CB microphones. Also if you own a nice aftermarket 4 pin mic you will be able to use it with the 880 as the radio includes a 6 pin to 4 pin adapter. The Uniden BC880 CB radio will be available in December and will retail for $149.95.
Uniden Bearcat BC680
