Click on the CB Modifications (see above) to see how you can modify your cb radio to get extra channels,better
modulation,more power.... do it yourself and save money.
I have been a Cb Radio operator for well over 30 years.I have owned many many different radios in my time
and I still have lots of them in my personal collection.I have seen lots of ads on Ebay and on Yahoo's auction sites that
claim this radio or that radio is the BEST ever.Balony! A radio is only as good as you want it to be.Granted,all radios are
different.Even for example a Cobra 2000 base station versus a Cobra 142....Which one is better.....answer...both are.So what,
one may have a clock and frequency counter and the other one does not.Who needs a clock.For the money I like the 142 better.It
can be modified to get the same frequencies as the 2000 and for little money you can ad a frequency counter.Some say the Browning
Mark ? is the best radio ever built.Its unique in looks and features but as for being the Cadillac of radios I think not.I
own 2 of these .Receive on it is great on AM and on SSB.But Transmitt on SSB sucks.Not on just 1 of the 2 I own but on both
of them.That doesnt mean all brownings are like this but from others I have talked to have said the same thing about theirs.
My personal preference is a radio called ARF2001.Most beautiful,well thought out CB radio I have ever
owned and still have to this day.Granted the original price of this radio is high,around $1,300.00 brand new and sometimes
even higher on todays market used.If you can find one.It has a Gray case and gold color knobs,and a D-104 made special for
this radio.Thsi radio is AM/SSB,scans channels,has a Keypad for channel entry ,2 so 239 connectors for two different antennae
hookups,and a switch on the front to switch between the antennaes.Has way to many features to mention.Its a really state of
the art radio.The radio itself is BIG.I found mine at a Flea market in Texas for $350.00.And I had it modified at their facory
by their top radio tech. The company that built this radio makes radios for the Military in New Mexico.
Like I said above,a radio is as only as good as you make it.
