Uniden PC78LTW

A full-sized CB radio with 7 weather radio channels and severe weather alert.

Full-Sized, Full-Featured CB and Weather Radio

Full 40 Channel Operation With Delta Tuning

The PC78LTW operates on any of the 40 AM frequencies authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), giving you plenty of communication options. The “Delta Tune” feature gives you a more sensitive fine-tuning control, great for getting a more readable signal or dodging the bleed from a high-level signal on an adjacent channel.

Instant Channel 9

This radio also offers instant access to channel 9 should an emergency arise.

Weather Radio/Alert

The PC78LTW also features weather radio, complete with a weather alert system. Weather Radio continually broadcasts weather conditions on 7 different channels, and the alert system sounds a seven-second signal in the event of severe weather, so you’re always on top of whatever mother nature’s dishing out.

Dynamic Squelch Control

Uniden’s dynamic squelch control delivers a clear signal with less noise so that all your channels sound crisp and legible. The squelch control even reduces noise when the CB user on the other end doesn’t have it, an advantage that few other squelch enhancers enjoy.

RF/Mic Gain Controls

Boost reception in strong signal areas with the RF gain control, and use the mic gain to adjust microphone sensitivity to your speaking level. The front-positioned microphone is easy to access, with an extra-long coiled cord.

Additional Features

The PC78LTW also boasts backlit control knobs and an LED channel indicator for added visibiliity, a PA/CB switch, channel indicator, and comprehensive monitoring/calibration with an analog S/RF/SWR/Mod meter. The unit measures 7.28 by 8.89 by 2.20 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 4 pounds 3 ounces, is backed by a two-year warranty on parts and labor.

    Quality Radio for Cheap I recently bought one of these radios for my semi tractor. I immediately fell in love with the backlit controls. Years ago, I owned the Cobra version of this radio, but I didn’t like it as much as this one. The controls are laid out very logically and have a nice feel. The Delta tune has a center detent for “eyes free” operation as you drive. The weather channels are a welcome addition to a long drive, keeping you informed of changing and/or severe weather ahead. The only things I didn’t care…
