Handheld Radio Specifications

This is the number of total channels that the radio is able to access and operate on.
Built-In NOAA Receiver
CB radios with this feature have the ability to access local NOAA radio stations for real-time weather reports and updates. CB radios equipped with multiple NOAA channels allow users to select the clearest channel to monitor weather conditions.
Number of Weather Channels
Radios with a built-in NOAA receiver can have multiple weather channels in order to find the clearest channel.
Illuminated / Backlit Display
Some models include a backlit radio display for convenient operation at night. This is an invaluable feature if a radio will be used extensively at night or in dark conditions.
AM/FM Tuner
Adjustable Output Power
Allows users to increase or decrease the transmit power of the CB radio. At a higher transmit power the signal will travel farther. In battery powered radios, users may want to lower the transmit power in order to increase battery life.
Squelch Control
Changes the sensitivity of your CB radio to adjust for whatever signal strength you may be receiving. Lower squelch levels will allow you to receive transmissions from a greater distance, but these transmissions will contain more background noise. Higher squelch levels reduce the background noise, but will eliminate some weaker transmissionsl. In effect, it keeps the receiver from constantly having to listen to static and only activates the speaker when a transmission is received.
