Marketing Information

The AH-27F is a portable, light-weight CB you can carry with you or use in your vehicle. The Mobile-Com circuitry provides the ability to use this radio in a vehicle just like a standard mobile CB radio. The F in it's name stands for frequency, this radio will give you a regular 40 channel read out or the frequency. This makes using the radio a breeze if it's been converted for extra channels. This is the best AM hand held radio on the market today. If you're use to seeing cheap low power units, this model will be a pleasant surprise.
