    Default CB radio advice

    Just looking for some advice on purchasing a cb radio as i'm not keen on having a massive ariel sticking out of my car but would a smaller ariel, of a similiar size to the radio ariel, still have a decent range(looking for 2-3 miles within a built up area)? And would the CB radio itself have more of affect on the range?

    Generally the longer the ariel the longer the range. In built up areas the range is likely to be short. It depends on the mounting location, the radio and the arial!

    You can get more output from the rig, if you can find a rig doctor these days! Do you want aerial removable or fixed? AM or FM? Cant believe anyone still on!
    Oh well 10-10 til we do it again!

    this takes me back to my teenage years.

    Dont bother beefing up the rig, just get a 1000w burner (amp).
