    6 pin plug?
    I would expect to see a DIN plug on it...
    Did the origonal mic that came with it have "up / down" buttons on it or any other controls?
    If this is just a cb I can't see any reason why it would need more than 5 pins unless it had some other control functions.

    Your CB has these features:

    NOAA 7-Channel WX Band - lets you tune to seven national
    weather Receiver service frequencies which provide local weather conditions and forecasts.
    X/Alert Indicator - shows the CB is ready to receive and
    indicates the reception of a weather alert.
    Built-In SWR Meter - helps you tune your antenna system to
    optimize your CB's performance.
    RF Gain Control - lets you adjust reception to match the
    strength of the received signal.

    Convenient On-Microphone - lets you quickly scan the band for Channel Up/Down Controls communications.

    CH-9/NOR/CH-19 Switch - lets you quickly tune to emergency Channel 9 or Channel 19 without using the rotary tuning control.

    Screw-On Microphone - ensures rugged operation and long life Connector

    PLL (Phase-Locked Loop) - uses a precise frequency reference crystal Frequency Synthesizer to provide reliable and exact tuning.
    Two Ceramic Filters - provides superior channel selectivity and
    prevents adjacent-channel interference.
    Specialized Squelch Circuit - compensates for fading signals and
    eliminates signal chopping during reception.

    Last-Channel Memory - tunes to the last selected channel each time you turn on the radio.

    Lighted SWR/RF/Signal Meter - displays the signal strength and the standing wave ratio (SWR).
    Digital Channel Display - makes the selected channel easy to see.
    Noise Blanking - reduces the noise occasionally generated by
    nearby electrical motors or automotive ignition systems.
    CB/WX/PA Switch - lets you quickly select among normal CB
    operation, weather mode, or public address mode.
    RX/TX Indicator - shows whether the CB is transmitting or
    receiving.
    S/RF/SWR/CAL Switch - lets you quickly change the display of the RF/Signal Meter to show radio input/output
    signal strength, the standing wave ration of
    the antenna, or SWR calibration data.

    I wouldn't say this is a bad radio :)
    made in early 1999.
