Tips on selecting a CB radio for your Jeep

How to choose a CB radio for your Jeep?

What you should pay attention to is that FCC regulates the power output of CB radio. Do you know the difference between a radio which labels $200 and a $50 radio? It is easy for you to incline to the concept that the more expensive one is of better quality. However, it is not usually the case. The difference just lies in “bells and whistles”. To your surprise, a mediocre and cheap radio with the carefully mounted and tuned antenna system will outperform a radio which costs you more than 200 dollars with the ordinary or questionable antenna installation. It is clear to you that it is the antenna which makes the difference and plays an important role.

The next thing for you to take into account is the number of channels. You are well advised to choose the 40 channel CB radio. Do not be deceived to buy the “240 Channels CB radio”. Having a better understanding of the work pattern of the transmitting radios and antennas, you will come to realize the danger of making a wideband radio with a relatively narrow band antenna work. We can say that, a number of people who don’t have realization of the danger they are in face of are the major buyers of these radios. It is very probably that when they go for a CB radio which features 240 channels, they usually have the feeling and belief that what a difference it is between the 240 channels and the 40 channels. There is no doubt that 240 channels in better than the 40 channels in all aspects. Naturally, they spend the money on the 240 channels, a wideband radio with narrow band antenna. Usually speaking, they may run the risk of burning out the radio in the end. This no-name and narrow band antenna is of course not powerful enough to cope with all the frequencies. Insist on buying the 40 channel CB would be a sensible choice.

Let’s have a look at the common features of the CB radio.

A dial for changing channels
A squelch control
An on/off/volume control

If your radio features PA, it will have the PA/Radio switch, with which you are able to switch between those modes. Do you have any idea of another nice feature for Jeepers? RF gain! RF gain give you access to control incoming signal strength when the strong signals are present and over-powering. Besides, mic gain is an excellent feature for the jeepers to have.
