Hum, I've been thinking about it the last few days. And the comments Hulk made about it being the only way to communicate to the rear on some of his trail runs and all the other advantages of having one on runs rings home. I would like another nice tool in my 4x4 toolbox.

Now I admit I usually don't have a problem talking to others on runs as long as people cb's are working correctly. But, that's not always the case and there are always late comers and people trying to find the group and such. Understanding that so many Rising Sun guy's have these things also encourages it's use. So it sounds like a nice upgrade to a trail leaders communication package and an advanced tool for an advanced trail leader. Sign me up for the class. I'm going' for it.

I'll buck up and find a place for another radio and antenna I guess. I plan on just spending effort on getting certified and the radio and antenna installed. But, I also don't want another hobby so you will probably just hear me on runs.

Roger, niner tango - out.

are there systems that hold up to water and dust? I'm not sure I want to put a lot of money into a radio that won't last if it gets dirty.

I'm sorry, my CB is over at the Pawn Shop. The Crack Heads needed it more than me. Radio is gone, tools are gone...

Default Dang Root!

I hope you get a break from all of the bad luck you've been having! Either that, or there had better be a silver lining to it all!

As for a waterproof/dustproof radio, here are a couple things to take a look at.

HT:
VX-7R

Mobile:
FT-2800
This one is advertized in the Aus. desert in an 80:
FT-1802M

80 series on the poster

Ditto! That is a cool little (and powerful) 2m radio!
