Midland 79-290 CB Radio AM SSB Review / Overview

This radio was way ahead of it’s time in terms of a detachable faceplate, memory functions, and weather channels. It could even be converted for extra frequencies. They are getting very hard to find in good condition – the main problem being the removable faceplate not attaching.

It has full 120 channel AM/USB/LSB operation, 12 watts output on SSB, & 10 weather channels for monitoring NOAA broadcasts. 4 memory channels allow fast access to your most used channels. Full implementation of surface mount technology and fiberglass PCB’s offer commercial radio quality and durability. Dual output transistors for the ultimate reliability and talk-power.
