I have a Stryker. But, it's still my Uniden 980SSB that's hooked up on my dash, while my Stryker collects dust, next to my Cobra, on the top bunk of my truck. To be fair, some golden screwdriver did monkey with the Stryker, before I got it, while the 980 has never been cracked open. My guess is that this new unit is marketed to truck drivers. Of the drivers who still actually keep a radio on the truck, most of them use it to get/give information from/to other drivers within a mile ahead of or behind them. Usually, most radios come on when traffic slows or stops, and they want to know what lane to be in, and what the hold up is. This can be accomplished with a Cobra 19 and the junky factory coax. The "legal alternative to radar detectors" pitch seems tailor made to convince truckers to spend more on the radio than they normally would. Actually, I hope that it works. Maybe it will serve to keep a few more radios turned on; at least in the trucks operated by English speaking drivers, anyway.
