CHICAGO, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Cobra Electronics, the leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced the availability of its new HH 50 WX ST and ROAD TRIP HH RT 50 handheld CB radio models. These self-contained, full 40-channel CB radios are ideal for road trips, hiking trails or emergency situations.
The HH 50 WX ST features a new rugged, compact design for maximum portability and comfort. This full-featured all-in-one handheld radio accesses all 40 CB channels, as well as all 10 NOAA weather channels with the latest weather and hazardous alert information, 24 hours a day. Cobra’s proprietary SoundTracker® system reduces up to 90% of incoming receiver noise for clear communications on each transmission. The HH RT 50 has the same great features as the HH 50 WX ST, plus it includes a ROAD TRIP kit with an additional magnet mount antenna for greater range during in-vehicle use.
“Most people think CB radios are just for the professional truck driver, but CBs are used by over 30 million people on the road today,” said Ramon Sandoval, Sr. Category Manager of Communications & Power Solutions for Cedar Electronics. “CBs operate where cell phones don’t, and in an emergency, you can tune to Channel 9 or 19 and get help right away.”
Both the HH 50 WX ST and HH RT 50 come with 4 Watts of RF output power, the maximum allowed by law, and can be powered by rechargeable or disposable AA batteries. They also include a 12V DC power cord for in-vehicle use and recharging on the go.
