So now I can actually talk to you guy's next time we go wheeling.
Naw we have a secret channels we use....LMAO....mike
Well I got the high and low channels plus USB, LSB, and FM.
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"
I only have a bumper mount with a 4 foot antenna..
Well on the cb rig in my big rig, I've talked to the east coast from here.
I have a CB in my garage i just gotta install it. I need an antena and what not. You guys know where I could get a good but cheap whip anteana amd mounting hardware?
Man, I almost forgot about the CB thing....One other thing to add to the to-do list before Blazer Fest......lol
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!

burt - link dont work

Hmmm, don't know why the site ain't up but here is another one...<a target="_blank" href=http://www.copper.com/product_menu.shtml>http://www.copper.com/product_menu.shtml</a>
i still need a new one...all the factory smoke came out of it at blazerfest last year
You went and let "the magic smoke" out chaz. Trying to send smoke signals with yer cb?
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...)
