    Has anyone heard of this radio Fuzzbuster Z-80 40 ch. CB I am trying to see a picture of this radio "nothing on Google" and see what features it has. A small picture that I have seen shows lots of switches and knobs but couldn't see what they were labeled.

    Well... Is this the photo you found? Fuzzbuster Z-80 - CB Muzeum fotogalerie, fotografie a parametry vybran cb radiostanice - CB Monitor - ve o CB / sbku / cimblu / cbku

    In the photo it is upside down but it appears to have most of the same features that would be found on a 29 or comparable radio. Instead of a conventional channel selector it has up/down buttons.

    As I recall these were sold around the early 90s or so. Not sure who manufactured them or what is inside.

    What I did was I was looking for an inexpensive 40 ch. cb with the NB feature while I was looking through eBay this fuzzbuster Z-80 with one minute remaining appeared in original box never installed for $20.00 and the picture of it in the box was to small to read the labeling of which appeared to be loaded with switches,knobs and buttons and I am hoping with all of those switches one of them is a noise blanker feature. I am short on funds right now and the near future as well. This radio is for my truck assigned to me at work and did not want to put an expensive radio in it regardless

    Reminds me of the 1980s Cobra "plus" models. No channel knob, LED level meter.
