Uniden UH7760NB UHF CB

As a travelling family, we really value safety and one of the most important pieces of safety equipment we have in our vehicle is a UHF CB Radio. Whether we use it for communicating with other people in our convoy, sharing road condition information with other road users or letting the driver of the 50m road train we are following know we are wishing to overtake, it’s something we rely on. Our UHF CB is rarely ever turned off when we travel.

However when we started looking at options we found that we weren’t really that spoilt for choice. As with most modern vehicles, space to mount accessories etc is very limited. Our previous UHF had a remote head-unit so it mounted easily without too much fuss- finding something similar was tricky. When we came across the Uniden UH7760NB it ticked all the boxes. The main chassis was so compact (100mm W x 95mm D x 24mm H) and with all the controls and interface located on the hand piece, it opened up so many more possibilities when it came to choosing a suitable location to install it. The compact chassis easily mounted inside our glove box and the hand piece control nicely hangs beside the steering column within easy reach.

With everything at your fingertips on the handheld mic, it makes navigating through the control menu simple and convenient. I personally like the large push-button controls for channel selection and volume adjustment.

With the compact size you can easily mount the chassis under the seat, behind the dash or anywhere out of sight. The full function handheld mic makes for a very tidy and uncluttered install, perfect for modern vehicles.

We have also upgraded our antenna to the Uniden 6.5db antenna and they work very nicely together.
