CB Radios – Three Purchasing Mistakes to Make

CB Radios – Three Purchasing Mistakes to Make

Buying any new electronic can be exciting – and frustrating. Especially when it comes to CB radios. Though their popularity has decreased over the decades, there are still numerous options to choose from.

That can be a problem when you’re a first time purchaser. So, to help you along the journey, here are three buying mistakes to avoid.

  1. Not doing your research. We know you’re rushed, but you can’t take a shortcut when it comes to investigating the radio you want. Going in cold to buy a CB is going to cost you more, possibly give you a transceiver you don’t want, and cause your installation to be unsuccessful. Take a few moments of time to read up on these units, their abilities, and where they work best.
  2. Buying for bells and whistles. Yes, it’s nice to have a backlit display that changes colors. However, that’s not going to help you clear background noise or boost your frequency gain. Nor will it help you run a SWR test between the radio and antenna. When searching for a CB look at the transmission options first before the extras.
  3. Going cheap on antennas and coaxial cables. CBs won’t work without being connected to an antenna via a coaxial cable. If you go inexpensive on one or both of these the investment made on the unit is going to disappear like a radio wave. Not only will people have a hard time hearing you, but you won’t get the operational capabilities you desired. So, spend a little more on both items.
