Why not jkust get a decent one to begin with.... they are not hard to use...

I have a GME TX3200 - Great CB, good price... a lot of the features on the top end models you probable wont ever use...

If money is the issue, just get a cheap hand held unit to start with and then get the permanent mounted version later - at least that way you will have the hand held for someone to help you through tricky sections without having to scream....

Gme or Uniden , you can't go wrong, personally went GME because it was the first one that came with a separate small contol hod there fore no major dash alterations . Uniden now have one.

Cheapis well from what I have observed it shows up out there in the sticks, a good aerial is essential, but I seem to get reception at a greater range than a lot in our mob, but for tagalong situation travelling even a hand held is adequate , as back up or to lend to anyone who has radio problems , I have a $99 Uniden .

Hand helds are great, I run with 2 just in case someone in the convoy doesn;t have a radio, great especially when u get into LOG TRUCK territory, Each area or travel route for trucks has it's own channel they use so u may find yourself changing from one to the other a lot. It's usually just a sign painted on a tree or post or what ever but worthwhile taking note of them and a case of getting out of the road when they are coming, they use the whole road. CHEERS
