well I'm just a lowly cb user but I run a uniden grant xl with some mods done to it for reliability sake. Had a bigger modulator installed when the stock one blew and stuff like that.
I think this is a very overlooked radio. It talks and recieves excellent. especially recieves. It's in the shop right now have some hack repairs rerepaired. I had a drive who had it worked on while he was using the truck and had chanels and a connex board installed. It was a compleate hack job and it blew the finals so I'm having it all fixed and having the garbage removed from it.
I also run an astatic 3K antenna on my KW t600. This setup works great for me.
I'd be interested in peoples views of the astatic antenna. I love it but wondering if I can do better
