    I recently put a magnet mount CB antena on my car and considering a do a LOT of traveling, I found the CB radio to be priceless. I have the Wilson 1000 with a 62 inch whip, but it is too high for my SUV (can't use drive thru, parking garage, etc.) I am considering buying a Wilson Lil Wil...

    Breaker, breaker, calling all CB experts. I have a choice of those two CBs available to me. Which one is better? Anything I should be aware of, or any negative drawbacks to either unit? The Royce is a base station, and the Cobra a mobile▬I was going to use one of them as a base station (if...

    I bought a pair of Oricom PMR755 UHF CB radios from Kathmandu in New Zealand and had real problems with one of the handset's auto-squelch control, with blurts of hiss. Took them back, got a replacement, same thing - but didn't bother to take them back. Suspect a design flaw or low-quality...

    It's a good read - well worth the time: http://www.libertynewsonline.com/article_301_30144.php# First time I had ever read anything about GMRS and some of the other outlets available, but there are a lot of other options out there. It's something all of us should be aware of and be ready to...

    Found this at a flea market unopened for $5. I know via the manual how to install in the truck but want a power source to hook it up in the house. It has positive and neg wires and inline fuse. Can I hook it directly to a car battery or what. Any tech help is appreciated. Also what antenna...

    Does anyone know of any hand-cranked/dynamo type CB radios available? Ive found cell phone charging dynamo units, but no CB radios.... Ive been searching google for hours now with no luck. With all the truckers out there, and dead zones for cell phone coverage, i think a CB radio would be a...

    Forgive me if this is too bold of a question, but I think it would be a good idea to make a forum for Radios. Whether they be HAM, CB, VHF, UHF, or just plain Walkie-Talkies, radios are one one of the most important means of communication now, and especially after a disaster. If you guys could...
