As my buddy Dan demonstrated at Bundy Hilllast year, a Jeep is not a boat, they don’t float!!!
Boats were given names, THOUSANDS of years ago when humans still believed in all kinds of superstitions such as the world was flat, and there were Gods of every season and any other unexplainable phenomenon.
Back when I had my first seven slat vehicle, a 1990 Wrangler (in 1992), cell /mobile phones, were not as ubiquitous as they are today…the CB radio however, was not yet TOTALLY forgotten…
Sidebar…remember the Nextel phone, and the Push-to-Talk feature? Now, if that service still existed…and if it does, there can’t be more than two people that still have it…it would be the perfect trail comms solution.
Today, the CB radio is all but forgotten, however I believe that the CB radio is an effective trail comms solution. Many in the Jeep community would argue for the use of two-way radios, or hamm, and I understand that these technologies are in many ways better, however for overall investment, ease of use, and practicality, I believe that the CB radio is the way to go for trail comms.
I recently learned, while listening to the Jeep Talk Show, that it is a good idea to check and re-adjust your antenna tune if your antenna impacts anything on the trail AND if you remove the top and/or doors on your Jeep! Below is a great video from Right Channel Radios on how to tune your antenna.
So that’s my set up, what’s yours? Can we MAKE CB RADIO GREAT AGAIN?
