i like the look but i cant talk on the cell phone until i am 18 and i can only have 1 other person in my truck so i have to travel with a bunch of trucks so this is a way that we would be able to communicate between trucks

do you live in a big city or something? i just turned 18 but when i was younger i ALWAYS talked on the phone and had a pile of ppl in my truck. i live in a rural community maybe that has something to do with why none of the cops cared?

The bad thing about having the look and no cb is when truckers and others need info tthey think you have a cb but can't reach you what if its a dire need to communicate ie emergency

And if he gets caught- I am sure you can pay his fine. Alot of states are doing this now, studies have shown that teens on the phone= alot of accidents.

Even more studies have shown that adults on phones= alot of accidents.

Why not just wait and call when you're stopped or call em back later. Is it that important to risk getting in an accident over a phone call?

i am going to use it when we are going on trips and are taking more than one vehicle so we can communicate between vehicles without the hassle of worrying about cops and finding the phone every time i need to communicate with the other truck

really it is a nice thing to have but not necessary so i will hold off till i have the extra money to use to put into the truck

I would invest in a couple 2 way radios. They have made significant advancements in there power and range over the years and the prices are really reasonable. The other nice thing is that they can go wherever you go. Fishing, hunting, camping, skiing, 4 wheelin', or whatever. For around $50 you can get 2 units!

It isn't about being caught, the law was made because of how unsafe it is, especially amongst young, inexperienced drivers. Tell the person who used a phone because the cops weren't around that hit a minivan full of kids and killed a few it was ok, cause the cops weren't around.

Many, if not most truckers run modified 10 meter HAM radios. Waaay more power than CB. Illegal of course. cool

Not true most truckers use either cobras, galaxies, unidens, etc... that have been peaked and tuned to put out more than the law says we can use which is 4 watts of output power. Ham radios are not in semis that I have ever seen and I've been driving over the road for close to 10 yrs

I wouldnt run just the whips for the "cool" factor. If you actually have a cb, sure run duals, looks better than a single, but dont run them with out a CB.

On a good skip night I can pick up truckers in Texas on my handheld in Blaine. If you try to run 200+ amps from a base station with a huge Yagi antenna, the FCC may pay you a visit.

    • Anyone here know anything about this round?  My father-in-laws's uncle used to have a lever action rifle that shot .35 Whelen. I just did a search to try and learn more about the round and see what the gun may have been but it appears that lever action guns were never really available in .35 Whelen and it was most likely a .30-.06 that was altered.  If that is true it sure makes me want to learn more about that gun.  Does anyone here have any knowledge of .35 Whelen?  I'm thinking of getting a lever action soon and because of price and availability of ammo was only considering a .30-.30 but now am looking harder at a .35 Remington.
