I have read other threads that deal with this topic and never really got a straight forward answer.
I guess the scanner and radar thread got me on this kick now.
What would you prefer more, a scanner or a CB? Would be nice if I could have both but what would the 1st choice be? I know how a CB works etc as I owned one before
Im not up to snuff on the scanners. I hear about digital scanners and how they are expensive but worth it obviously if the area you frequent is using digital. Do these digital scanners also pick up the "regular joes?" I would like a scanner to be hand-held if possible. Can the handhelds recieve a good range? I know I couldnt cough up the money for the Uniden Bearcat BC296D, but that is one I would look at getting. Is this a good unit?
I would like to have a full size CB and not a hand held. I use a hand held now and it doesnt have good range. Only drawback from the full size units is mounting location. I have had one stolen from my truck sitting in my drive-way.
What full size unit would you suggest for the CB?
Sorry for all the questions, I am an electronic guru and I always do alot of research before I make a purchase. I always have to have the best out there cause with electronics you get what you pay for.
