well in all honesty if you wanted the best reception it need to be mounted on the roof, the higher you get it the better

Mount to the basket???

my friends and i used to run cb radios before smart phones were common. it was far easier to set a channel on the cb and push a single buttong to talk than it was to try to make a call on an old school flip phone. also made it easier to communicate when there were 4+ cars in the group.

 

i plan on setting up some kind of short range communications when i build my brat. now if i can just convince my friends to get new radios, lol.

It's great! some of my friends at school have them and every day I pull in we get on the CB and shoot some spoob over it. Also at Tahuya the past week I used it quite a bit, its nice when almost everyone in the group has one. It makes life much easier.

Here's a recent shot by a friend of mine after the Tahuya trip. The mud looks yellow but the more I look at it, the more I like it.  plans to get a light system going on the front of the basket are in works.
