Midland 42 DS | CB 27 MHz AM/FM Handheld Transceiver

The Midland 42 DS is an extremely compact CB hand held with over 400 channels allowing you to use it all throughout Europe and now features Digital Squelch (Auto Squelch).

The 42 either runs on 6 x AA batteries, or 8 x AA batteries (depending on the battery pack used) so it can be used in or out of your vehicle. The 8 x AA pack can be used with the included mains charger to recharge 8 x AA cells. A car kit is also included, which allows a vehicle antenna to be used giving you a much greater range.

Not great!
Thursday, 21 January 2021  | 

I was very impressed with the speed and efficiency of my order, but not so impressed with the Midland Alan 42 DS. The range of the radios was extremely limited. At a distance of about 400 metres, the signal was almost unreadable. The build quality is not bad, but definitely let down by range. PMR 446 is infinitely better even though limited to 0.5 watts.
