I use my Galaxy DX959 CB mostly, but I have been known to yell on occasion. I have been using CB since 1975 and find it a valuable tool for various reasons. But the biggest for jeeping, is in an organized trail party, a CB is required. Plus it beats the heck out of having the dust eater at the back frantically honking his horn trying to get the next jeep to stop long enough to come back and render assistance. (Being that dust eater, I had a cb, some of the rest of the party including the afformentioned next-to-last jeep, did NOT have one. The turkey does now. I gave him one of my old 23 channel Cobra 19's. )
2-way radios. But they suck because if you're too far apart or have obstacles in between... plus they tend to not stay where you put them last. Especially after bouncing over some rocks. I want to get a new CB for my new JK.
It's been 23 years since I had a CB in my '76 F-150. What should I look for these days?
I use a Uniden 510. I made a bracket to attach it to the footman loop at the top of the windshield (no drilling). The radio works great, but doesn't have an external speaker port and the built in speaker sounds bad. I have tuned the antenna well and the radio usually transmits with the best of them on the trails.
