Title: CB Radio's
Post by: NoisyCricket on July 23, 2015, 11:33:48 AM
I am considering getting a hand held CB radio instead of mounting one in the dash.  Has anyone had any luck with them?  Any recommendations?

Thanks

I have one if you want to try it. It kind of sucks. It picks up fine, but cant transmit. Its always been that way.

I just ordered a Midland 75-822.  I think have a CB kicking around at the lake, so I figured that I'll just install that if this turns out to be garbage and use it as a loaner.

Thanks for the offer!

They might have changed a lot. I got this back in the 90's. And it never worked.

At least I have a backup plan if they haven't improved over the years.
