First of all, hello! I'm on this site to learn more about scanners and perhaps cb's. I recently bought a uniden bct8 and I'm satisfied with it but the reception can get a bit fuzzy I was wondering what a good antenna i can get (keep in mind i have a small car and not planning to drill holes in the body)
On the other note, I have been interested in cb radios for a little while, after watching Smokey and the Bandit i think, but i'm not on the freeway too often and my scanner picks up no activity on the cb freq. My question is, is it worth buying a cheaper uniden cb and an antenna or is it pretty much for freeway use?
Being a pizza devilry guy I speed around town quite a lot and bought a Cobra XRS 9430 and it worked well, however after about a month in the CA sun i think it got f*cked up somehow because it catches ether nothing or a false alarm for X. I know this because I've driven streetlight at the radar gun with no alerts. Is it possible it got fried or theres something else wrong?
pardon any spelling mistakes
