The Moonraker Minor. A basic 40ch CB radio at a budget price. It is the only 40ch CB radio being sold in the
UK New at the moment. The moonraker Minor has been around a few years now but it has been upgraded
over the years and now bears no resemblance to the original version.

It is ok for a very basic set but for £10 more you could get yourself something better.

PRICE NEW  £50 APPROX.

display option. The latest version also has dual voltage sensor so it works on 12v or 24v.  A very popular

MIDLAND 98 PLUS
Another of the more basic sets but don't let this put you off. Although it doesn't have all the fancy frills of
some of the bigger rigs it makes an ideal mobile rig and with its "ESP - noise killer" it deadens the
background hiss to something like the background noise of early AM sets which will come as a great
relief to many
Also with multi function Mic. FULL 80 UK channels.

COBRA UK25LTD-ST
The trusty old Cobra UK25LTD ST. Familiar retro look to this radio but this has the new generation
processor and is completely different to any other Cobra board in the past. Lots of functions on this,
although the sound tracker is quite a let down compaired to other makes. That said, it's a nice old piece
of CB nostalgia with a nice chunky mic. Easily expandable to 400ch AM/FM.
FULL UK 80 channels.

PRICE NEW £120  APPROX BUT THIS UNIT IS BEING DISCONTINUED
Similar to the UK25 but with more functions. This radio though has an illuminated night-time display.
Sound tracker once again dissapoints but overall a very nice radio which looks really cool in the dark.
Unfortunately Cobra have just ended the run on these and to get them new will now be very difficult with
only a few shops with any stock of these at all.
