Hey!

What's the best place to learn about CB Radios?
YouTube normally helps me out but there isn't a great deal of stuff on there...

Yeah... There isn't a lot of people on this forum lol, the ones who reply are very helpful mind you!

It's annoying the E-mail notification for replied doesn't work though!

Google is alright but seems to always have answers to everything but the question I ask lol!

YouTube seems to help a lot as always... Talking to people on the radio is the best though I think..,

Do you not get emails through at all then? If it isn't working I will look into it because it should.

Unfortunately, youtube is full of blokes either filming the contents of the box that contain their brand new antenna,or even more videos of post set-up of probably the same blokes, chatting to some bloke across the pond about their rig, radio, antenna, mike and their location. Not much at all with regards to antenna assembly or installation. Then there is the rig/radio itself, propped up on a fag packet because, well we all know rigs and radios just don't work correctly unless propped up at the appropriate angle. I know, I'm just kidding with ya, but I think you get my point. There are one or two on there, however, who will be happy to welcome you to the world of CB radio. I have asked untold questions to a couple on there, and they always reply with clear and precise answers. Really a friendly bunch. And no fag packet in sight lol
Good luck.
