Frequently Asked Questions

FAQS related to 4x4 - Midland Alan 42 Handheld CB Package Deal   £142.00

Q) How many batteries does the Midland 42 Multi take?
  • The Midland 42 is supplied with two empty battery packs, one designed for 6x non rechargeable AA batteries (i.e. Duracell etc), the other battery pack takes 8x AA rechargeables.

Q) Are batteries included? Q) What sort of distance can i get with a Hand Held CB Radio?
  • Unfortunately the range of the handhelds using their own aerial is very limited.

    If you can connect them to an external aerial then they will work as well as a conventional CB but on their own short aerial you are looking at a range of approximately :

    0.5 - 1 miles handheld to handheld
    1 - 2 miles handheld to vehicle
    1 - 3 miles handheld to base (with big base aerial)

Q) Can i use a handheld inside a vehicle on it's own aerial?
  • You can, be range will be very limited, down to 50-100 yards/metres as the laws of physics and the "Faraday Cage" effect mean that outside signals won't want to enter the metal box that is your vehicle, and signals inside (from the handheld) won't want to leave!

    The solution is to connect the unit to an external antenna on the roof of the vehicle, this is made very easy with the Midland 42 and the Intek H520 as they are supplied with in-car kits.
