range is about 1 -2 mi. depending on terrain and tall buildings.
if you get someone to set your standing wave correctly and you get a power mic
and the night is clear you can reach out to 15 -25 miles; but thats not to say you'll hear back from the other guy
of course on a higher elevation you would be able to reach farther; but y'all aint got to many high places down there

nice handle

Annoy as many of those retard hwy guys as possible lol...they get on our road channels and once in a while on a loading channel. You tell them they're yackin on our rd or loading channel (important channel where logging trucks need to know where everyone is so theres not a head on !) They dont care, they keep on talkin away or they'll say something to piss you off and keep yackin away....complete disrespect.

The all important loggers in Ontario are using 2 way radio with there own frequencies. Besides that without truckers your cb (citizen band radio ) wouldn't have a use.

A KICK IN THE ASS IS STILL A STEP FORWARD

If your trucks like mine id mount it to the dash in the center just above the floor. In my truck its just below the pop out dash cupholders. In this location itll be out of the way enough to not hinder your driving or obstruct your view. It would advise against putting it on top of the dash because it will get very hot and could damage the radio.

I use a cobra 29 ltd in my frieghtliner classic at work. Find a cb shop in your area and get it peaked and tuned, get a good antennae like a wilson or a k40 and get a heavy co-axial cable.
