I haven't gotten to "test" out my CB/antenna range yet. Hoping to eventually find someone with some time to chat while I drive further away. Anyway, with a Bearcat 880 and 4' Firestik I was hoping to get a good 5,6,7 mile range. Is that a realistic goal ? Mostly installed the CB for the weather function but it'd be fun to talk while cruising on trips. Thanks for any insight guys !!
