    You can swing by after the monsoon if you want and tune it here.

    Just for conversation sake ..... how do you peak a C.B with breaking the law???

    I've run C.B's in my auto since 16yrs old.
    You used to be able to get a guy around here who dealt in them to tune it ...... very long time ago.
    Now when I swap a C.B or antenna ...... I just ask for a radio check and it seems to be fine every time and I go about my business ....
    I understand this is supposed to be bad for them or something ...... but in over 30yrs ...... nothing has happened

    Speaking of CB - I have a Cobra 75 and last week drove down and back to NC on 95 and was disappointed that not many seemed to be using it. I remember many years ago at least truckers would give a heads up on Ch 19 on speed traps but I heard zero and past tons of LEO.
    Google maps now gives out a verbal speed trap warning.

    The imbalance gets reflected back into the radio. Too much and it will fry.

    Ya know, if the s*** really does hit the fan who the hell is going to be going around checking to see if you have a license to operate that radio? Dopey Joe Biden? I have my Dad's CB radio from the 90's and it still works and if I need to use it that's what I'll do. I'm not sure if my qualifications on radio operation by the FCC are still good now that I'm retired but I had to take a test to get those qualifications as part of my qualifications as a train crew and then later as a railroad foreman.

    You'd be surprised, they are here in this very forum and are the same ones who want to dissuade people from using Baofengs.
