Uniden UH8050S UHF CB Radio

Now to the second of the radios that I received information about from Australia. I have to say that I like this one. I would say it looks very Johnson II’Esque when see them side by side. Maybe this was a base of something in the past deep inside R&D in Japan. What I would do? In a heartbeat copy and paste this one into a President with the same style display, 27MHz of course and with the export channels. Same RJ45 socket on the front and add the William mike as an option (like it is with the Thomas ASC) Also include the CTCSS/DCS.. A nice dream of course… And I also like the ability to record and replay a QSO. Also excellent is the ability for it to work with the cordless mike. Seems a whole lot of Uniden for the cash……….. Maybe worth import a couple and try them out for the distance and quality of the contacts?

I will say range and quality of TX tests are happening with Aussie channels on hand held radios with external antennas as we speak, as of today. So information tells me and we all know someone involved and playing with this.
