    "COBRA".... has several models with various ranges. Cobra has a good name in North America,... Canada,..and are reasonably priced. They have many channels you can lock onto and chances for privacy are decent. Good experience with my Midland CB also.

    CHEERS !

    I have several models (and friends also) and these are quiet as church mice....My latest set even has vibrate mode to be used with volume all the way down....(plus a built-in emergency flashlight)....
    I may just have bad samples, but I know about the roger beeps & all the other noises and have turned them off. These are definite bursts of static. I also got the other tech-savvy members of my party to look at them, and all of us agree -- don't use them for hunting.

    I replaced them with a Garmin RINO 530 Cx, which is both a great GPS and a much better radio than the Motorolas. It is also a lot more expensive. Must have started a trend -- all the other guys in our party are getting the Garmins.

    Thank you to all who replied.

    I now have some ideas about the features I'll need ad the brands to consider.

    Marimus, I take it you weren't too seriously damaged by the floods up there?

    No damage, but I had a hard time getting home when it was just starting. 3 1/2 hour drive which is usually 1 hour. After that I was stuck on my property for 3 days, two without electricity. Then the waters went down enough that I could get into town - however since Toogoolawah and Esk were cut off from everywhere there wasn't much point going to town.

    My brother had it worse though. He lives in Laidley and was surrounded by flood waters. He had electricity however he ran out of beer

    I sometimes think no electricity would be great, you can't do much without it!
    Except fridges and freezers could be a problem.
