    Re: Selecting a CB Radio

    It comes to a few basics. Power from the battery. When you install the antenna, grounds need to be large and low res, then test for continuity and lack of, last tune the SWR.

    Here is a good site the three things I mentioned have links in this site. Don't hesitate to post up questions though.

  3. Re: Selecting a CB Radio

    It is a piece of very clear information about CB radios, thanks a lot. But still, I would be great to know what is the most common customer choice. Or does it depend on the individual choice? I am currently looking for one. At the moment, I am based in France Population (2020) - Population Stat Please suggest me an online store that would deliver to my place. Thanks a lot for your help.

    CB is inexpensive, you donít need a license and is sometimes required at off road parks.

    HAM has more stations and could be powered to go further. Doing this to a CB will not help on a trail. Too much power too close splatters all over and you cant be understood.
