Uniden BC980 Reviews
Just got the radio a few days ago. I ordered it for my wife's car. She said I could put a radio in her car as long as it was not ugly. I showed her the light options on the 880 I had just gotten for our son's base station in his room. She liked it so I grabbed the 980 for her car just to have the SSB option. She also said she did not want a big ugly antenna on her new car either, so I paired the radio with the "NewYorker" satellite radio look-alike antenna. I will say I am impressed with the pair. Radio does a great job if you know how to adjust the controls. Thanks Walcott for an easy purchase again. I'll leave more review on the antenna with it.
I love the radio great service friendly very perfessional people there my number one place to bye
After a couple weeks of consulting back and forth with the team at Walcott Radio, I finally purchased this unit. The Walcott team was a great help in assisting me with making my decision. Now for the radio, Great unit right out of the box, paired with 18 feet of Procomm coax with the removable PL259 on one end also purchased from Walcott Radio and fed into a Wilson 2000 trucker ant with the 5in shaft. This unit walks the dog. First on the air test resulted in a contact about 10 miles away telling me I was "Loud n Proud".
Before purchasing this unit, I watched multiple YouTube videos of all the "golden screwdrivers" doing this mod and that mod to these units. Why mess with a perfect product? These radios are great from Uniden, and the SMT they are using now leads me to believe those videos are just a bunch of smoke and mirrors to take advantage of the consuming public and lighten their pockets of hard earned cash.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a solid performing radio out of the box the Uniden 980SSB is it. Never remove a cover, just install and enjoy. And as for a great team to deal with you have found it in Walcott Radio!!!!
Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!
Purchased this radio to replace my aging PRO 520. No complaints yet. I'm running this radio with a Hustler HQ-27 . Great performance right out of the box, got out on AM and LSB with pretty good results-About 35-40 miles without any amp or tuning, on a hill about 100' above sea level. LOVE the scan feature as well as all the other features. Great radio so far, and FAST shipping from these guys!!!!!!! THANK YOU WALCOTT RADIO!!!!!I only have one concern, not a con. the channel selector knob has a light feel to it. Probably wouldn't want to bump into it hard.AWESOME!!!!!!
