What's HT stand for? I sense in means a handheld radio.

I would also want a simple cb\ham setup to mount in my existing din. Then mount 2 antennas to one radio. I would kick down for that. I dread having to mount an extra radio in the cab somewhere. It's honestly the biggest problem I have with diving into this. Sounds like a marketing opportunity.

Handheld Transceiver. The removable faceplates and remote kits make for very easy mounting solutions! Really! Snoop around at the on-line vendors....pretty amazing stuff.

And there you have it...So UB, when does your new Ham radio arrive and what one did you decide to go with?

I do not have any radio ordered at this time! I agree that Ham makes sense but I also do not need another hobby!

Default CB & HAM in one Radio?

This doesn't exsist. You would need to buy both. CB is (as UB said) technically HF(High Freq). 2m Is what we use primarily in the vehicle which is VHF (Very High Freq).

Problem is, any radio built to work on CB(11 meter HF~) has to be approved by the FCC and cannot be manipulated to do anything else. Therefore, combining both 2M and CB is not feasable for many folks, HAM or not, without having two radios.

Common question. Is what most folks get turned off of the HAM thing for.
If for no other reason, the class IS GOOD for all radio using folks. Lots of good info.

Kinda sucks when your enemies have superior equipment, don't it? I mean, you got the supahchargah and all, with the longfields and 315s, but your radio is so 1975 it just screams for Evil Knievel, some Coors and a Trans Am. Of course, it screams, but no one can hear it because the range is about 4000 feet and your voice was just trod upon by a trucker in Texas speaking Spanish with an illegal amp and no qualms about obeying tha' rules.

Cheerio!

35's not 315's (there is a differance) I like(d) Evil Knievel and Trans-Am's but Coors is for 's. My radio always gets out if you remember so 4500ft is an easy walk in the park! The people I use that radio for are also well in that range and the ones that aren't are probably outside the truck figuring out what broke and not listening to the airwaves anyway!
