    Thats cool. I had one in mine but i took it out... it only got out like a half a mile if that.
    Several years back I had a base station at my house with a B.F.Antenna on my roof... that baby would get out like 7 miles!

    What are all of your guy's "handles" for the CB...
    I suppose at hollister we'd go by our first names, but when talking to random other cb'ers what do you go by?
    My handle= "Buttrash"

    You don't need nothin fancy for trail riding so reachin out more than a mile or so is usually pleanty. If you want to get out and touch someone get a lineir amplifiyer(sp?). I use one in my dayly commute and I can reach out 20miles or so. And you can hit skip land and bounce all the way to Florida on some days!

    A good guy for CB Gear, and a local is Bill at bills2way.com

    The site has a lot of stuff on it. If you get lost you can send him a simple note with what you want and he will generally tell you what works best.

    Else you can just go to radio shack and get whatever they have. the trails don't tend to be so far apart you can't make a setup work. At hollister we had an emergency radio in the 2nd truck in the Zakk entorague with a real cheap magnetic antenna and were never out of range.

    The big complaint that I have with the cb is that I think we need to limit our radio (FM) time when on a trail ride...(yes I like the music too don't get me wrong ) but It can be fustrating calling people and the radio is over the cb....( I am not saying anyone...I drive truck so that Is a problem that we have at work...)
