i got one in my truck, dont ask me how to wire it in as it was there when i bought the rig. i like having it for road trips and around the farm, road trips means i can listen in on the truckers and get cop locations and a few good laughs, around the farm its nice cuz we arent burning cell minutes. yes a cb will get signals in and out where cells cant but there has to be someone on your channel to hear you.
theres really no need for all the breaker breaker stuff, thats all radio ettiquete, jargon and slang just being polite on the air will be enough. tuning in is as simple as turing the cb on and selecting a channel. i beleive that 18 or 19 is the standard interstate channel and before the cops and paramedics all went to government bands they broadcasted on 9
