The stubby antenna is there too; I take the long antenna only when I know that I'll be using the radio. With the long, thick, white antenna on the car, it looks like a 1:1 RC car
That's part of the reason I want one! Entertainment factor! Besides I HATE radar detectors. They're so freaking annoying!maxib said:It's not worth putting up with the illegally AMPLIFIED good buddies from Mexico discussing roadside diners and scags in Tucson when you are trying to avoid LEOs in Michigan!

What is Single Side-band?nomad said:As for the radios... ssb gets that much more distance?? Holy crap.
edit: More info on ssb please. Sorry, I'm old school and have only ever used regular CB (AM) radio's... :idunno: Do they operate over the same freq. range? Is there a specific channel you use to speak with truckers/public (i.e. the known 19 channel) etc?
How much distance do you guys get from your straight CB (AM) radio?
