My CB Radio Choices-Cobra 29 WX

I don’t use the cb as much as most people on the road may do. I use it for the emergency communications that it was originally intended for. The NOAA weather stations and the quick dial to channel 9 have been some real improvements over the years. I started using a cb in the 1970’s. This was during the cb radio craze and the movie convoy. It was a real neat thing to be able to communicate with the truckers on I-70 while they went about their day. I was in high school then and I am glad to have been able to talk with some of them on the radio and get a feel for what it was like. Little did I know then that I would be one of those truckers someday.

I have tried many different brands over the years but I found the cobra 29 to be a stable radio right out of the box. I have the cobra 29 wx and it seems to work fine for me.

The weather channels have saved me several times and the quick alert system it has will blast a warning signal to you and scare the crap out of you if there is an emergency alert. You know, like when a tornado is in the area and they hit the emergency warnings to beep on the tv and radio to warn you to take shelter.

I would much rather get startled for that type of warning than to be driving at night and have my truck get blown off the road because I did not see a nighttime tornado.
