Default SSB CB Radios

Ok, more questions for the experts here,
im looking at a new cb, the ssb options look to be the uniden bearcat 980, the Galaxy 959 and the president mickinley, the uniden I don't care for the display, the Galaxy I've heard drifts quite a bit on ssb, but the president I haven't found much about except from the people that sell them.
does anyone have much experience on a well made relatively easy ssb cb radio?
What is a good choice for todays radios?
I had a cobra 148 GTL years back and sold the truck it was in, the radio was the deal sealer on the truck, I should have kept both

Well, I ordered the uniden 980, Amazon just made it easy, lower price, then 70 bucks off for applying for their card, so the uniden 980 SSB CB was 59.00 after tax

Why did you want SSB? The lack of responses should have indicated to you that no one is running SSB.

You're right about it being slow. Lots of great info in the old threads, but not very many folks hang around here anymore. Too bad. Anyway, good luck with your install; safe travels!
