NO IT IS NOT only certified radios are allowed for CB and anyone the dosn't beleve that needs to go read the rules
§ 95.409 (CB Rule 9) What equipment may I use at my CB station?
(a) You must use an FCC certificated CB transmitter at your CB station. You can identify an FCC certificated transmitter by the certification label placed on it by the manufacturer. You may examine a list of certificated equipment at any FCC Field Office or at FCC Headquarters. Use of a transmitter which is not FCC certificated voids your authority to operate the station.
(b) You must not make, or have made, any internal modification to a certificated CB transmitter. (See CB Rule 25, §95.425). Any internal modification to a certificated CB transmitter cancels the certification, and use of such a transmitter voids your authority to operate the station.

The RFX Mod is a solid choice for a stand alone unit,the heat sink makes the standard case about 3" longer on one rear corner.
They can not be mounted in the overhead due to heat build up.They must be allowed to breath.
Second option is a 2 pill box(for mild) or a 4 pill box for wild,you will need more radio for anything larger then 4 pills.
Of coarse that my preference,I always under drive my equipment
Radios are like Race Cars,Speed = $$$$$, how fast ya wanna GO?
Hey, Jamie here and being the newb and reading 99% of the posts here I need some help.
I work in the oilfield and I'm looking for either a VHF or CB radio that works on the 110 - 220 range. I have the frequencies I will be calling on logging and oilfield controlled roads.
My question is, which radio can I purchase that I can enter the frequencies as I go? Also, what antenna to use, do I need a license to use said radio. I'm all about the rues and regs and I don't want a fine from the Canadian version of the FCC.
Thanks in advance for any replies I get from you gurus out there.
Since when is there a problem with protecting what belongs to a group ? In this case the HAMS. I don't see what's the problem since 12 and 10 meters are HAM BANDS under internatioal law ( ITU ) they are not shaired with anyone SO The HAMS are protecting a HAM band this has nothing to do with CB.
The problem can be traced to the use of ILLEGAL EXPORT RADIOS like the CONNEX which has a BAND SWITCH and a 40 ch selector you put the BAND SWITCH on one of the higher ones and the channle selector on CH-19 and you wind up on 28.085 a Morse Code ONLY frequency then gripe about the hams running intruders off ?
No nothing to do with hall monitors CB or otherwise it BELONGS to the hams they are just defending it.
but its OK for Hamchops to be hypocritical and stir the 11 meter bands at will.
That ham flag you assume to be "defending" is very similar to the USA Flag you also claim allegiance to
I hate liars and likened petty thieves,which is the primary reason I havent
had a current ticket in over 20 years.
Ham Op's have long since been nothing more then FCC Licensed Teamsters*
The pool of "legit" radio men/women shrinks every year.
I am a free born US Citizen and will exercise "free rights" to all things "FREE"
Put the information out there and leave it. The guy who gets the last word in loses. The people who come to this forum asking questions are, from my perspective, typically new to the trucking industry or new to CB radios.
If you want to get people to do what is best, right and most sensible, you won't win them over by calling their baby ugly. (even if it is) Show them a better way to accomplish what they want, then drop it.
ps. I'm just writing this to try and get my 50 post min. for pms, don't take offense to it. It's just an observation. <3
