    CB Radio\'s

    I want to purchase a CB but with so many choices, I'm haveing a hard time figuring it it out. Any suggestions? I was thinking of one of these: YAESU FT-2800M , YAESU FT-7800R , YAESU FT-8900R or Magnum 257. What do you think? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Thank you! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Well those are not CB's and you MAY not transmit on those Yaesu's without an amatuer license. Radio one is a 2 meter rig, radio two is a 2 meter and 440 rig, radio three is a 2 meter/70cm/6 meter and 10 meter rig. If you want to talk from truck to truck with other wheeling partners get a CB . If you are licensed the quad band radio is awesome /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I'm one of those guys that buy 10 meter radios and convert them for 11 meter (CB). I'm a big fan of the Galaxy radios. I recomend The Galaxy 99v and the Galaxy 95t.

    Northstar is just another label for Galaxy radios. They are all made by RCI anyway. Many of the popular export radios are on the same main board with variations of the minor features and faceplates depending on which company imports them.

    What is the best way to communicate in the woods? And on the road? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    LOL, I guess I don't know what the hell a cb is. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Also, is it hard to get FCC licence? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    You don't need a license to operate a cb. Maybe try to find a cobra or uniden radio, they are fairly nice and easy to operate.
