I'm thinking of putting a CB in my truck. I think it might come in handy during the travel to Alaska and while I'm there in the remote areas. Any of you guys know much about them. I've had a few but they all sucked. I'm not wanting to spend alot but want to be able to reah a few miles.

Thanks Much

I would go with a Galaxy or Connex. They are top notch for the price. A Cobra isn't too bad if you don't buy just a cheapo.

what ones did you have? i have a galaxy 73v older radio but talks great. cobra 29 is a decent radio. you have to get a decent antenna and coax cable too, and get the radio tuned for it to work best.

I have a magnum s3, with a wilson 1000 antenna and it works great for me. U just got to have a cb shop tune whatever u get. I hear 10 miles or so in one direction or the other on the interstate no problem. It probably reachs further but I haven't tested it much.

Yea he isn't lying.. Galaxy is a sweet radio. I have a Cobra 29LT Classic. Works great. I could probably wire my antenna for better reception but been great radio. It helps to have an SWR meter and adjustment on your radio. Cobra is a great radio for the price and easy to get.

a cb shop, most big truck stops have one in them that will turn up the receive and adjust the modulation and power on them.
