I'll pile on and say I like the Motorola's better than most of the Midway or Cobra (hand-helds). If you get into the $100+ for a radio, you will start seeing the playing leveled amongst the 3 mfgrs. Another thing I like about the Motorola's is that accessories (headsets, external mics...) seem more readily available. These accessories can come in handy when you don't want the external speaker on the radio itself blaring.Bua, I 'm leaning toward Motorola myself, I've heard better things about them than Midland. As for CB's I love my 29LTD Classic, I've had it for years. It is also peaked and super tuned
I've heard a few bad things about Midland's walkie talkies, namely around reliability and range. The reviews I read on the Motorola was better, but also honest enough, as Motorola even came out and admitted the range limitations and when tested, the Motorola met with these limitations (eg: 2 mile radius range in down town Seattle).Bua, I 'm leaning toward Motorola myself, I've heard better things about them than Midland.

A little off-topic here, but I have a question about the CERT that you are part of. There are many different CERT groups according to the wikiI use them on the CERT team I work with so they get abused. They are water resistant which is a good thing because it rains a lot here in Oregon. They are very rugged (dropped them a couple of times).
