    Magnum 257 25 watts stock! http://www.copper.com/cgi-bin/checki...prodP03-01000+

    Magnume Delta Force Rocks! http://www.copper.com/cgi-bin/checki...prodP03-01050+

    Both of these units will "Git er done" and you will be able to fool truckers into giving you "smokey reports".

    Thanks, that's more in my price range. I want a cheap but reliable one. I thought the antenna choice was more important?

    The antenna is the most important. and a good reliable radio comes second

    Well the only difference is the amount of power they each can handle.

    I went with the Wilson 500 cause it was cheapest one i could get my hands on and 3 best base loaded antenna
