Re: CB questions
Well, yes and no. often the more expensive CB's give you extra gadgets and that's all. Mine has squelch and RF gain controls, and that is all I really needed.
Do a search on internet for CB SWR (Standing Wave Ratio) and do some reading. Trust me, just hooking up the CB to an antenna won't cut it. You will need to pay someone to "tune it" or you can do it yourself if you or someone you know has an SWR meter. I recently did a post concerning this, i.e. effect on SWR of antenna placement, grounding, cable used, type of antenna, length, etc.
