    I still use an old Cobra and an old Midland with SSB, I've got the vehicles wired but I never put permanant mounts in them since I dont leave the radios in when their parked.
    I like the look of that digital face it might be time to upgrade.

    In the Suburban I run a Galaxy DX959 with a mag-mount Wilson Lil' Will antenna. Works quite well considering the sub-par antenna.

    They still have their place as there are places that we like to go camping where there is no cell phone service and if you're gonna communicate then that's a good way to do it.
