Re: UHF CB radios


I have a hard decision to make. I have the option to install either a 40ch or an 80ch. What has become the standard now? Have most people decided to do the change or are we looking at staying with 40ch? I don't want to go to the trouble of pulling half the dash out to install my trusty 40ch GME remote head then doing the same thing in 2 years if the trend is to 80ch seeing both are still legal but have issues communicating between themselves. Wondering what the natural selection trend will be?

Re:


If you already have the 40ch and it works perfect - then just install that.
40Ch will be around for many years to come...

If you have to go out and BUY a radio - then you will be hard pressed to find a new 40Ch - so go with 80 !!

Re: CB Radios


Hi people, if anyone wants to know anything about cb's, you can contact me and I should be able to help. I manage a fleet of programable Icom 400Pro's and IC41's for two motorsport clubs with their own repeater and WICEN repeaters. I'm also learning GME radios as well. I'm not quite a qualified radio tech, but I've been working on radios of various sorts for over 35 years and was a qualified computer network engineer which is technically 'radio' signals over wires or wireless types as well.

Re: UHF CB radios


Not sure where this idea of a 'Ban' came from but about 6 months after the ACMA introduced the 12.5kHz 80ch plan, it was always designed to be backward compatible with the old 40ch. Why would you make something backward compatible if you were banning them?

Anyway, from what I understand of the CB 'licence' conditions, all NEW radios must comply with the 80ch 12.5kHz step schema and good luck selling a 40ch. But if you have a 40ch they are not banned or illegal, and 'most' work OK with the new 80ch units. What we are seeing (or hearing for a more precise description) is the 80ch units sound 'tinny' & 'thin' to a 40ch unit because they are transmitting at 12.5kHz to a radio receiving at 25kHz width.

I moved all my 40ch CB's when they were still working out the schema and only kept programable units so no matter what they did all I had to do was write a new clone file.

FYI, the other 'big' changes were ch 1-8 & 31-38 (41-48, 71-78) are now dedicated duplex repeater channels and are NOT to be used in simplex mode and ch22&23 (&61,62,63) are dedicated telemetry channels and you should not be able to transmit voice on them, they should be locked out/disabled on any new voice radio.
