Think about the last time you were stuck in traffic, and you have no idea what was going on ahead. You're stuck moving at 5 mph without knowing the reason why, or how long you should expect to wait. CB radios give you access and availability to a local network of people, people who you couldn't call on your phone because you don't know them, but people who for miles and miles would have been telling everyone with CB radios to take the previous exit because of the accident ahead. You cannot get this on a cellular phone. CB radios have their own dedicated channels, and come with a certification allowing you to use them without the need for a license or in-depth technical proficiency usually required from other types of citizen radio services such as Amateur Radio.

The 40 Channel CB Radio band has some designated channels such as 9 for emergencies, 19 for truckers on east-west roads and 17 for north-south. Different off-road groups have their own channels. But generally, many jeep drivers use the channel 16. Why, you ask? Because it’s 4X4. No other reason we can discern If you’re not sure of a channel’s designation, it’s best you listen for a while and try to understand if there is any code of conduct or prevailing usage
Two of the most important factors for the range and performance of your CB Radio are:
Antennas make or break a radio system, if you want to be able to receive and transmit properly you need to get the right one, place it right and mount it safely.
Ideally the antenna is a quarter of the wavelength, for CB that means 8.5 feet For many vehicles that is simply not practical. That’s why coils are used to make it longer (in an electromagnetic sense) without actually making it higher. Coils usually look like balls or lumps in the antenna, they can be located at the bottom, referred to as bottom loaded. Middle, referred to as middle loaded and top, called top loaded antenna What’s important is that the coil be placed above the roofline
