too much skip on cb these days

we use our cbs on the local runs alot. the problem is if you squelch out the skip. then you cant hear some of the other rigs. the last one another and myself used some of these little walkietalkies, but it is hard to understand over the motor and other noises. there is no skip however

Re: too much skip on cb these days

DParker, what's a "below 1 and above 40" CB, and can any CB be modified to receive these channels?

Re: too much skip on cb these days

I think they are called sideband channels..or is that something else?? Does anyone have info/websites on how to modify CB radios. I've had one for about a year, and now that it's not new, I don't mind trying out my electronics abilities on it! Hmmmm, that sounds like the reason I use to modify lots of things??

Re: too much skip on cb these days

on the last trail run my spotter brought along a pair of those cheapo FRS handheld radios. I clipped one to my drivers side sunvisor and he was able to give me nice verbal instructions on some obstacles. I know that doesnt solve your CB issue, but i thought I'd share it anyways.

Re: too much skip on cb these days

i have 2 motorola talkabouts and another has 3 of them they are just hard to hear unless you are on a slow trail but we are usually tearing around the beach or mud or on some road thru the mountains and even with cbs sometimes we need more range i recientally installed a linear but that doesnt help the skip problem just helps others hear me over it

Re: too much skip on cb these days

O'Course.. you can completely get rid of the problem and spend 10 bucks to take a HAM test to get your license..

Then buy yerself a radio..

Reach a LOT farther.. and on most frequencies... no static..

Just my 2 cents..

Course being part of a HAM club doesn't help me either..

Re: too much skip on cb these days

Become a ham radio operator.

Now days there is a "no code" requirement. It lets you have all amateur priviledges above 50mhz. The license is renewable every ten years. The only cost is the book "Now You're Talking" from the ARRL and the cost of the exam. If I can do it, anyone can.
