Benefits of owning a CB radio.

What is a CB radio?

A CB radio, otherwise known as a Citizens Band radio, is a classic piece of technology that provides a two-way communication system. Some people keep one at home or in a vehicle as a way to prepare for severe weather events and natural disasters that could affect cell service or for roadside incidents.

CB radios access a selection of channels all within a meter band set aside by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for personal and professional communications. Since CB radios do not require a license to operate, they are an accessible option for many radio hobbyists.

CB became popular during the 1970s and 80s, and the amount of traffic on CB stations increased dramatically, prompting some professional users—like electricians and plumbers—to move to VHF. Truck drivers, however, still use CB radio to learn about roadside incidents and road construction. Channel 19 is the unofficial “travelers’ channel”, making it a perk to have a CB radio in your car.

Setting up a CB antenna and radio scanner.

Unlike walkie-talkie-style two-way radios, most CB radios have a handheld microphone that connects via wire to a radio scanner. Since these radios are popular with truckers, off-roaders, RV drivers and other travelers, most models are fairly easy to install in a car or truck. Depending on what space you have in your dash, you can mount your radio in the dash or on top of it. You will also need to mount an antenna on your vehicle (ideal placement is usually the center of the roof unless you have a sunroof).

If you are installing a CB radio in an ATV, motorcycle or other open vehicle, it is best to choose a waterproof CB radio that will stay protected against the elements. CB radios with headset jacks that make them compatible with hands-free headsets are a good option when driving.

If you do not feel confident installing your new CB antenna and radio yourself, you can always reach out to Best Buy’s car electronics installation professionals for assistance.
