    The nice advantage of good old 11 m HF band citizens band is good distance and range compared to modern FRS and business class UHF/VHF portables you can buy easily today…with them you are lucky to get more than 1/2 miles on flat unobstructed topography, with the CB at 4w you can easily get 20 miles or more in the same conditions and CB is more effective when you have poor topography such as trees, hills ect.

    I just got one of these!! Old school factor for sure. For the wall charger the center pin on the radio is + ? I think an external mic might be needed because is volume is low coming into my mobile unit.

    The antenna is the most important part of a CB radio. You forgot to show it.

    I love these things, I’ve been hoping someone would start a forum or group dedicated to Realistic CB handhelds. TRC-216 was "New for ’86" btw. great radios, Japan made. I have a pair of TRC-210’s from 1983

    I used to dream of having one of these as a kid.

    Not sure your still there, but can you tell me what the polarity of the power plug is? I’d like to plug mine in and use it. But I don’t want to fry it.

    I’ve got one I had from new, can’t remember when, 95 ish🤔

    Just bought 3 trc 219 at garage sale for $3. Are they any good?

    My son bought a pair of these same CB transceivers for $10 today, but one of the antennas is broken..any idea where he could find a replacement?
