Handheld Radio Specifications

This is the number of total channels that the radio is able to access and operate on.

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.

Good CB

Good radio for all purpose use. Also has 2 weather stations. Cobra tech support is phenomenal if you ever have a problem. It uses a plug in a cigarette lighter if you don't want to use the 9 AA batteries in your vehicle.
