I've had one of these for about 5 years. I mounted the silver receiver
box under the back seat (driver's side) - easy connection to good power
and ground there. I ran the antennae cable under the seat-back out to
the trunk compartment where I have a permanent antennae mounted
(centered on the leading edge of the trunk using pressure screws
underneath - no drilling) - same antennae used by police cars. The
microphone is stored in my armrest - I made an extension cable and ran
it from the silver box under the back seat, out under the carpet on the
hump, to under the console, then up into the armrest. Now when I am not
using it, the interior is clean without any cables in sight. To use it
I just open the armrest, pull it out and close the armrest. If I need
to disconnect it to move it over to my Trooper, I open the armrest and
disconnect it there. The antennae is a 1/4 whip and is tunable.
All together on this car I can send about 3-5 miles in the PA hills and
I can receive from 5-10 miles away. The all-in-one units will NOT have
as much power you can get out of a standard CB, but for the portability
(able to move it from car to car by buying an extra silver receiver box)
and the clean mounting options this allowed me to do, I'll sacrifice
Without it I would never cruise from Ohio to NJ on I-80 in 3 hours.
With it, I may have been know to do something like that in the name of
//S-Fest travels - or not.
I think the best part of the CB is knowing there is a traffic problem
ahead (before you get there) and can jump off the road or get into the
better lane before it's too late. I've saved countless hours of sitting
in traffic jambs by know what's ahead of me 20-30 miles or more. It can
also be very entertaining.
Due to a long commute I take 2-3 times a week I am looking at getting a
CB for my S4, . There isn't much space for a CB so after doing some
research I've found the Cobra 75 WX ST
Anyone own this? Looking for thoughts/opinons.
