Re: UHF CB and or Zello - Trying to generate some activity

Just personal thoughts, with the advent of technologies over CB (like Zello), typical use of CB with decent etiquette to me is a thing of the past. It's really only used for local simplex stuff. It's rare that I can even raise a trucker on 40 these days. Also with Discord and the like being easy to ...

Re: Dual Band UHF For in Car Use

I think it will be a stretch to find a product that does that. All the UHF CB's I've seen only have hardware to receive extra stuff in 450-500Mhz'ish.

Re: 6AR Interference

It seems to have started about 1547. I've checked all the ones I can think of north of the river with a roof mounted antenna and nothing is transmitting up here (very quick check though).
