I'm Looking to buy another radio. I want something with a larger meter like the Galaxy 99 or similar. Also want the talkback and the echo as I have never owned something like that. I have a Cobra 29LX which is alright but the receive is horrible compared to my 2970n2. So my question is what radio is going to have better receive like the 2970n2 but the toys I want. Stryker and Connex make several models that fit the bill but will the receive be any better then the 29LX. Not a big fan of Models with all the lights. Can you shut the extra lighting off on those models ( like the stryker 655/955 or the connex 3600hp ). Thanks for any feedback in advance!
