    This question seems to get brought up a lot lately. For new guys, Cobra 29 for me as well. No need for someone new to go toast a good radio and possibly mess with electronic equipment in the truck or get RF burns from improper installation.

    Maybe @Admin wants to pin a good first CB thread? Just wondering.

    I am impressed there are guys asking this these days because CB really has fallen to the wayside among newer drivers.

    I hear what you are saying, but no one has posted here for several days. It's nice to read something new, even if it's a repeated subject.

    BTW..........by rookies, I meant rookie CB owners. Getting a Stryker, or any other "big" radio as a first time buyer is akin to a newly licensed driver getting into a Hellcat Challenger/Charger and heading out on the highways and byways. It won't end well! Start with a basic radio (Cobra 29/Uniden PC78) and learn the ropes. Then if all goes well, you can move up in class.

    Also, if wifi_guru is still reading this, we have forgotten to mention that a good quality antenna and coax, is more important than an expensive radio.
    There are a few good threads on this forum that deals with mobile CB antenna problems. Even though they deal with big trucks, the principal is the same for pickups and cars.
     
    Crude Truckin', wifi_guru and Numb Thank this.

    Yes, I was debating about mentioning the antenna system too, but I decided to throw that out there. It seems like most people that sign up to ask a question, never hardly reply back. So it makes you wonder if our efforts to help someone are in vain.
