The TRC-447 is not a powerhouse radio like the more expensive units, but with a little "external enhancement" can be a good setup. I know since I have 2 of them. Either go to the sponsors here on the site or your local shop and locate a small amp to install. I have a shooting Star 225 Plus on one radio and a SCP SC-100T-BIL on the other with Wilson mag mount antennas. I have gotten nothing but good reports back on both setups. I did find out though that if you are going to run the amp you do not want the Mic Gain on the TRC-447 over 50% or you will sound like absolute CRAP!
A large majority of users don't seem to like anything from Rat Shack, but I have had good luck with my 2 setups.
I also have the Schematic, Service Manual and Owners Manual in PDF format if you need them thanks to Bennie at CB Tricks.

Look here for a decent deal on an Amp.

There are more in the For Sale section.
