I’ve been using the Talking House ATU for about two years. Got it on Ebay for about $100 without the whip. The whip from a local CB shop was $20.
I’m getting about the same range, good signal for a 1/4 mile and heard out about a mile.
If I would get busy and add a decent ground radial system I’m sure it would do much better.
