I've been using those FRS handheld radios for commo so far on my outings. Are there many of you AZ members with CBs? What are the pros and cons of them? Should we get them, and what are some good brands - I don't know much about them.

I think the 2 ways are very useful. I perfer the mobile mounted unit. With all the thrashing around its good to have it fixed. You don't have to get out of your truck all the time for up to date info. I mounted my antenna on my spare tire rack so the base is out of the way, just a little prevention of knock it off by branches. My last outting though I lost it from all the vibration so I need to get a new one. This time I will safety it to the mount. I leave my radio in the truck all the time and I don't think no one wants to steal them these days. So ya, I think there a good idea.

Yea, I think the CB thing is great! We use em camping a lot with other buddies. Helps to find each other and such. That's a biggey. Otherwise they're good for releasing some sarcasm (GP...maybe you & Mohammed shouldn't get one!)

Although I don't know much about them. Mine has knobs and switches I know nothing about! Maybe on our next outing someone could take a look at mine and answer a question or two.

Most of the 4x4 clubs in AZ use CB's when on the trail. You would have the advantage of talking with other groups if you use CB's.
