Let us know what you think of the 885. I thought about buying it when Uniden first announced it but completely forgot about it after that. I'd definitely pick one up if it shows some potential.
Will do! I will first set up on house to see how it works sitting still when LEO are cruising close by. Been some time since I had big CB like device (RCI 2970 and 2950 owner) set in a vehicle. The 885 is not tiny. will be PIA. Especially since “CB” is not as effective as it once was. I will say this, the 2970 on 10m, few years ago when sun spot cycle was good, had huge range out in the boonies west of Mississippi River. Some cases was picking up South America. If it “accidentally” went over to 11m with a balanced antenna, range on SSB was excellent. Trucks back then use SSB on 11m (CB). Many had linear amps. With 100W on the 2970, did not need linear. :)

Delivery says Thursday.. Should be able to do unboxing in a week after that.

@GTO_04, want to help with this science project? Should he pretty straight forward. test for defects, update, run on street. we can compare with the SDS100/GPS while mobile, and fixed with your SDS200. Hey, we ought to do some FW update my R3 vs. Your hottie R1, my R7 on new Vortex YouTube approved FW too. A “Uniden spring break”. :)
