I was going to dump these in another thread, but I have so many.
Solely to listen to trucker for bear updates, maybe ask for bear updates, and let truckers know I'm coming up fast so they don't block me in / get pissed off. So, I want to be able to listen from a distance, and only talk within maybe 1/2 mile.
For the physical unit, I'm looking into buying something small that I can fit (w/ modifications, not slide in and out) below the radio (former kill switch panel). The dimensions are 12.5 x 5cm roughly, I can trim a little more. I plan on running the wires back to the trunk and mounting the antenna on the trunk.
CB going here:
My current selection is:
Lil Wil Antenna (mag mount)
Aux Speaker, please suggest type (I'm afraid the unit is too far away and will be jammed in there to hear clearly)
If you've got problems with these, please voice.
1.)Is it worth buying it peaked/tuned? Where's the best place for this?
2.)I read its coaxial cable, but not the TV type, so what type of cable do I have to buy to run it back to the trunk?
3.)Is there a place I can buy all this at?
4.)How fast can i go with the mag mount? I've been to 160 before, but probably won't be over 140.
5.)What do you actually say to the truckers before you pass? I don't want them getting pissed off at me flying by at 100+.
