The CB radio is used to the drivers those who are drive very long to long and mostly it is used to the drivers that should not feel sleepy that the divers have a sleepy while the drive the vehicles. on the other hand at the day time, this kind of radios are used to drivers that they should not feel bound while driving
If you are a driver who has been suffering to drive long distance then you can choose CB radio on your track .but the thing to notified is before buying a cab radios you should know the basics factors of CB radios that which is allowing you to delete a perfect radio which is apt for you.
Here are 2 basic factors which decide the performance of the CB radio systems,
- Portable CB radio range,
- Antenna length and height,
Portable CB radio range:
When you are going for buying a new cab radio you need to check the portable CB radio range feature available in that radio. Because if you are having a feature of portable CB radio you can use it anywhere, for example, while you are walking around in a shopping mall, your radio range may be within 100 yards.
Another thing is if you are using portable units for the communication between 2 or more vehicles, you can expect the connection about at least 1 km range.
Antenna length and height:
We all know the general agreement with the cab radio antenna to the radio range which can be received or send via the antennas. Which shows the importance fo the cab radio in your cab system.
A real factor about the antenna used with the cab system is that how taller your antenna, which will decide your radio range gathering. So that the higher up it is mounted, and give you a great level of frequency in your tuner.
This is due to the background truth that the taller antenna has a lower angle of radiation, which means that the CB signals travel near to the ground for a longer distance than higher distance. There are many types of antennas are available in the market.
Most of the type of antennas with the higher range are the stainless steel 102” whip antennas, but which is not practical because of parking in a short height like garages, under the tree and some other places. the single center load antenna also has the same transmit and receive signal ranges as the whip antennas have.
Duel finger glass antennas have a range of 5-7 miles for the 4-foot length which has a roughly a 255 increase in the range for the same direction of travel compared with a single fiberglass stick antennas. And a 4 feet single fiberglass antenna’s range should be about 4-7 miles.
Other two types of antennas with the shortest range are expected to operate well, that are mounted antenna and the no ground plane (NGP) antenna, which, in four-foot lengths, have a 3-5 mile radio range.
