Ok I'm sold. After hearing a couple good recommendations and doing some research in this thread I'm going to pick one up. I'll make one last stop at a local Walmart just to take a look. If not Amazon here I come.It's been great. I have the 4' antenna on a Bandi Mount, with the connector on the passenger side of the center console. I have the CB in the glove box until I need it, then I simply plug it in and turn it on. It gets very good reception and transmission too. It's the best non-permanent setup I have seen. By non-permanent I mean a radio that I can take out and there will be no trace of it ever being in the rig. No holes drilled, nothing permanently mounted.
Bummer, is that The Solder Joint 2-Way Radio Sales and Service this one? If so, it can easily be on my route home in the evening. I still need to look into a antenna. I'll give them a try first. I can still use the information.Cruiser4,
I wish I had seen this thread previously. You have a very good and well respected shop in your backyard. The Solder Joint in Orange on Tustin is an old time cb shop. I would suggest you visit them.
I remember starting to get into CB's as a teen when we were out camping. But I assumed that whole thing died out over the years. The only two way communications I've been use to are the Motorola Handhelds everyone has when you're at Disneyland. I do know when the Midland arrives there will b e no stopping my boys from wanting to play with it.Truckers spend a lot of time with the CB so those places have quite a selection.
