I prefer the uniden for two things:
- I had one before, so i'm biased. Plus its very reliable and tiny.
- If you play hide and seek, it's very precise on signal strength (hehe).
SSB models are awesome because while most people aren't into the cb thing, they go for the cheaper models and have no means to listen in your semi-private conversations (when you use ssb, you're between channels, and people hear you as if you'd be on a scrambled line).
