Any online suggestions? Just want something simple for trail use.
Radio Shack, Ebay, classifieds.
My only advice would be to not spend much on a CB. There is not much difference between the cheap ones and the good ones. I got some cheap Midlands for $11 each and they are as good as anything. The max power is 4 watts whether you spend $11 or $150.
In terms of what is readily available, the Uniden 510s set the standard of value per $. This is just my opinion, but I'll stand by it.
Spend some $$ on a good antenna. The Lil Wil discussed in another recent thread is great for the $, and if you want to spend some coin, the Wilson 5000 is about as good as it gets. Seriously, spend your money on the antenna!
Save your radio money for 2 meter (VHF Ham) radio. It puts CB to shame. Look in the Outfitting section.
I think I still have one I took out of my Vega that only has 21 channels.

Uniden sounds good.
Sooo.... it wasn't used much then, huh?
Walmart usually has the midland for around $35. Might have to check more than one store, though. Seems not all of the stores stock CBs.

Hard to go wrong with Cobra if you get one of the silver faced ones not the cheap plastic cased ones. my.02
