My buddy that I go offroading with has been on me to get a new CB for sometime now. I finally broke down and bought a new Midland 75-822. It's pretty slick, you can slide on a battery pack, and it becomes hand held, or you can hard wire it in your Jeep and it becomes a more traditional CB.

I've found that cellphones are useless in the woods, and a walkie talkie is really only good for two Jeeps. I'm hoping that this guy will have some good range on it.

It has two battery compartments (both detachable), one for rechargeable and one for regular batteries.

I have the old Wilson version. Line of site 5 mi.
You have to keep the antenna outside to keep good contact. So i had a 2.5 ft ngp antenna mounted for that radio.


But for the jeep less than 1/10 mile ahead. It works as is out of the box.

You might want to look into an external antenna. You could do a mounted antenna on the rear of the Jeep or a magnetic mount antenna on the hood. The hood acts as a groundplane and substantially improves the radios reception.

Huh, Thanks.
