SOMETHING NEW IN CB LAND..... THE TEAM 'ROADCOM'
Well, it's not often Team impress with their range of CB's but this one is so different
it could be a winner. This is, as far as I know, one of the first CB radios that fit into the
space where normal car stereo's fit. It comes with a standard 'din' bracket that most
modern radio/cassette/cd car players have or the standard mounting bracket and
thumbscrews as most other types are supplied with..
The large multi-feature LCD display can be changed from blue to amber or
vice-versa and the CB also boasts of a built in VOX (Voice operated TX) system so if
there is ever a change in law making hand-held mics illegal to use while driving,
VOX will be a good way around this.
The radio comes with a whole host of features you would expect from a top end
radio and if it works as well as it looks we may have a new classic CB on our hands.
The only worry I have is will people have this piece of kit in their car where their car
radio used to be. Will they be willing to lose their entertainment value of normal radio
in preference to a CB. I know a few will but the majority won't. Luckily it still has the
option on under-dash fitting so all is well.
As with all 'new generation' CB's it shows frequency readout and normal channel
identification and will be programmable for different countries. Also, it can run off 12v
and 24v so HGV's do not require a 'Dropper'
The starting price is expected to be just under the £100 mark and will be
available in all good CB outlets shortly.
