I need help choosing a CB. Me and some of my friends had CBs in our cars back in high school but I didnt really know anything about my CB then except that I could talk to my friends on it. I now have a 96 80 series that I am wanting to take trail riding and will need a one to talk to other drivers but when not trail riding maybe just to communicate to the truckers on the interstate. Do all CBs have channel scan. I went down to the local Theisens and looked at there CBs. They sell mostly cobra and one midland. The antennas they sell seem small. I think 3 foot was the longest one they had. Does that matter if I were to mount it high? Some of the CBs they had at Theisens were like 50 dollars and some were like 100. Maybe if someone could give me the basics. Also I see something on here about 2 meter radios.
