Re: UHF CB radios


Hi John,

Unfortunately I haven't used it much as planned due to our trip to Birdsville in July having to be cancelled.

I did test it on a trip to West Wyalong though (my car to his parked vehicle with mounted aerial) and optimistically started calling when I was about 30k's North. Around the 20k mark I did get some feedback, but it wasn't very clear and only for a short period of time. I eventually spoke with my mate when I was about 5k from his place and confirmed with him that he had heard me earlier. Unfortunately after the initial contact he had decided to have a few more sherbets, instead of monitoring his CB, so it was difficult to pin down a distance.

Knowing that he had heard me calling around 20k I'm pretty confident that travelling outback on the flat I could comfortably get a range of 15ks at least, which is more than enough for what I would be using it for.

Hi Whip,

Thank you for the info. 15 km is not to bad for something so easy to install.

Cheers

FYI John, just reading a Repco brochure and they have
the Oricom pack on special again for $179, a saving of $90.

Re:


If it helps anyone, there's a tiny little European CB that fits in the driver cubby a treat:
Albrecht AE-6110
80 euro channels, 40 UK, 4 watt about £50 GBP, its the size of your palm. really good reviews. Bad point? mic is not replaceable its hardwired (but sure I could do it if needed). Channel up/down on mic so I can leave the cubby shut all the time, no need to look at it. I choose to fit the speaker to make it easier to hear when driving. Its not hardwired on my x so I can quickly move the CB between cars.

Re:


Hi All,

I am about to head over to Perth and while I am there I will be doing a bit of exploring with the rest of my family, so I finally installed a CB Radio into the T32 TL. I got a Uniden 80 Channel UH8080S with a GME AE4018K2 6.5db Antenna. It was fitted by Strathfield Car Radio in Concord. They did a great job and it is a really clean install. One of the reasons I picked the UH8080S is all the functions for the radio (including the speaker) is in the handset, so that is the only part of the radio that is visible inside the cabin. The following is a picture of the install:

If you are interested in the specs for the UH8080S, the following is the url to the Uniden UH8080s webpage:

Re: UHF CB radios


The intended ban of existing 40-Channel UHF CB radios on 1st June 2017 has been reversed by the ACMA

For those of you still with 40-channel radios (like me) you won't have to upgrade now.

As a matter of interest, how many of you still have 40-channel radios ?

Re:


I am very surprised that they canceled the ban instead of extending the time to replace the 40ch radios.
The amount of interference on the 80ch system is amazing. In some areas the upper 40 channels are unusable from the noise.
