Re: Cobra HH-38WXST, or Midland 75822...and why?
i am looking for a handheld for roadtrips to communicate between cars via cb instead cell phone. people say the reception is not that great without an antenna, but how far would it reach? if a few cars are driving down the freeway following each other would everyone be able to hear the handheld?
Yes, but if the last vehicle fell behind and wasn't noticed, or everyone passed a slow vehicle except the last one, or the last one got caught at a light that everyone else made it through, communication would be lost once a 2-3 mile gap in spacing occurred. All handhelds are under 5 watt broadcast, and with a stubby antenna the range is short. This is the biggest knock on handhelds.
