You need your SWR tuned as do those you communicate with, if a mile is all you get! Or you may have an antenna problem!Group riding for ride info since the stock cb doesn't get out very far. Sucks, $800 for a sub par cb. Range maybe a mile on a good day.
not true i only use mine when riding with others that use thiers, i can't talk back because i don't have a head set or mic but i can listen. when not needed there is a knob to turn it off, no distraction and stay off ch 19. too bad they don't have side band. i am looking for a mic only, anyone know where to get just a mic? going to get a head set over the winter but still need a micTo me a CB is just a distraction and an electric gizmo that has to be repaired now and then. Also expensive to buy.
