I wanted a CB radio in my car, but my father would have most certainly killed me, but, as with most teens, I have found a loophole. Or is it better put as jerry-rigged a loophole?(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)4.0AH battery plus ammo can plus dads old CB radio = a good emergency communications system!Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
so how does the People here will use there CB Radio when there is no Fuel to Power there Car up?
I built it because these are making a comeback with my friends, and I was the only one that didn't have one, so I had to build oneSent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Just picked up a Cobra 29 LTD, peaked and tuned by a local guy who was well trained in radio, and put that knowledge to important use back in the day. Now he peaks, tunes, and sells CB's as a hobby.When I picked the 29 up, it worked great. So I handed him my previously mentioned Cobra 25 LTD WX for a check-up. All tuned up and ready to go. Its smaller than the 29, but has weather and weather alerts, which is why I like it so much. First time I heard that weather alert scream out of the CB - powered OFF at the time - I nearly soiled myself and crashed.The 29 and the 25 are working great, so I handed the man an old Cobra 19. Not a 19 iii, not a 19 ii, just a simple old 19 Ulta. Old school, but not as old-school looking as the 25 and 29. When it is done I will have 3.Trouble is, when I broke the frame of my big Blazer, i got into a Grand Cherokee, and there is no place to easily plop a CB without getting either creative or daring.In a month or so, i hope to be out of the Grand Cherokee and into a Silverado. Then the CB can be mounted on the center hump, near where the old fashioned 4x4 transaxle shifters used to be...you know...before the time when push button 4x4 was a thing, when people didn't need an iPad embedded into the dashboard.We dont hear much chatter in the New England Town area, but we do hear some. I presume some highway road trips would unveil more use out west or south of Pennsylvania or so? Maybe even towards the White Mountains and Maine?Who else is running with a CB?
