Default Looking for a Compact Mobile

I'm looking for a compact mobile for my Jeep. Currently I have an old Radio Shack/Realistic radio but am wanting something dedicated more towards SSB on 10m that has the ability to at least tune into 19 and 27 on CB so I can listen to a few friends modulate. Something preferably under $150. Anyone have any suggestions?

At that price range.. Good luck. Might find an old HR-2510, but not quite the "compact" you're looking for.

Personally I'd like a CRE 8900 Single DIN rig.. But it's kinda spendy and hard to find.

I'd be okay with something withe separation kit, but I didn't think they made anything like that short of full blown HF rigs.

You could try for a Radio Shack TRC-485 but you would need to get it modified for 10 meters if you want to use on 10. There is a youtube on how too.

A Magnum 257 is a small compact 10 meter radio which is easily converted to 11 meters.
You can find used ones in that price range.

There's a used RCI2950 on eBay, right now, for $135 buy-it-now. Item No. 191005181594

If you can do without the 10 meter band, then the Uniden Bearcat 980 SSB is a nice smaller unit that works well. I bought one a couple months ago at a Pilot truck stop for $129.
