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.
An average price for a CB radio product, antenna, mount and cable will usually be around $200, give or take. There are many options, so complete systems of CB radios will vary quite a lot from as low as $70 to well over $1000. For most people, expect to spend between $50~150 on the CB radios, and around $30~100 on the antenna system.
This control, found on most CB radios (and other consumer electronics), affects your receiver sensitivity. Normally, you want to turn your RF gain control all the way to the right so you can hear other CB radios as far away as possible. Sometimes, you don't want to hear the people far away as you are having a conversation with someone close by, this is when it's a good idea to turn the RF gain down. If in doubt, turn it up all the way!
Your microphone gain, also known as dynamic mic gain control, is used to adjust the volume of your transmitted audio. Basically, this controls how loud you sound when talking. Generally speaking, you should keep the mic gain turned up as high as you can. A good range is between the 12:00 position and full right. If anyone says you're too loud, turn this control down. If they say you're quiet, turn it up.
In radio communications, Single-SideBand modulation or Single-SideBand Suppressed-Carrier is a refinement of amplitude modulation which uses transmitter power and bandwidth more efficiently. Amplitude modulation produces an output signal that has twice the bandwidth of the original baseband signal. Single-sideband modulation avoids this bandwidth doubling, and the power wasted on a carrier, at the cost of increased device complexity and more difficult tuning at the receiver (resource)
Your standing wave ratio is a measurement of the efficiency of your antenna system. Less efficient systems will have a higher SWR. reading and will result in poor performance and potential damage to your radio. Therefore, it's always important to measure the SWR reading of your antenna system with regularity. Choosing CB radios with a built in SWR meter is a very good idea so can quickly test your antenna system. Alternatively, you can purchase a standlone SWR meter from us here.

On average a handheld CB will work for less than 1 mile. Mobile CB's installed inside of a car, pickup, semi, etc will average around 2-15 miles. Base station CB systems will average around 5-35 miles. All of these numbers are rough averages and your particular antenna system and installation will make a huge difference in performance. Other factors like solar radiation, terrain, nearby objects, etc will also come into play.
Absolutely! While CB radios are not used as a communications hobby as much as they once were, truck drivers, RVer's, people off-roading, and anyone concerned about safety all still use CB radios today.
The best overall is the Cobra 29 series including the classic, nightwatch, chrome, and LX variations. The best single sideband CB is the President McKinley. The best compact CB radio is the President Bill. The best all-in-one handheld CB is the Uniden CMX760. The best walkie talkie CB is the President Randy.
CB range is almost entirely determined by the antenna system. Most 40 channel CB's are going to offer the same amount of power output, meaning the range won't change much. If you have a modified CB, that can offer better performance.
