CB Radio is an easy and simple way for you and your mates in different vehicles to chat together as you drive along...
PMR446 walkie-talkies are a good choice for those who don't stray too far apart, but if you want more range, and no batteries to run out or little radio to hold to your ear, then CB is the only way to go.
CB Radio is cheap, very easy to install (often in seconds with a magnetic mount on the roof and cigarette lighter socket for power if you don’t want a permanent fixture) and gives you and your mates communication with each other for up to 5 miles, sometimes more.
There are nothing like the numbers of users on CB nowadays - most of the "idiots" have gone, leaving the channels for those who want to make better use of them.
For groups of friends or clubs who regularly hit the road together - the ability to be able to talk to each other increases the fun immensely, and makes for great days out or weekends away!
What is said by one person is heard by all on that channel, so passing information and banter between the group is instant - you don't need to know each others phone numbers or rely on network coverage.
