Cell or.................
Ok! The world revolves around the "cell-phone", we all admit to that!

However, you folks know when you get into the Mtn's that there are many "dead-spots" and depending on your carrier, there may be large geographic dead-spots!

So, is anyone still using the ole "CB" anymore? If so, what is the BEST, today? :popcorn:

I use my CB on the trail, haven't had much use for it on the road yet.

I recommend rightchannelradios for the antenna at the very least. I like my Wilson Flex 3' :D

I have a VHF in for the mountains and plan on putting in a cobra 29 and then I always have the cell with me so I'm covered...

I need to put my CB back in... Its a Uniden PC68XL. Excellent piece of machinery :)

I just got a cheap little Midland ($20 off FleaBay) that works OK for highway traffic. I bought a handheld because I didn't want to hassle with mounting it permanently. (Amazing how such a big car can have so little available room !)

No idea how it'd do out in the boonies, but CB's pretty much line-of-sight anyway.
