CB and HAM radio in Jeep

I have a CB radio in my Jeep and I am thinking about getting an amateur radio license. Does anyone have CB and HAM radios in your Jeep? Those of you who have HAM radios, what frequencies are typically used on trails? Are there any issues I need to be aware of with both radios in my Jeep?

I am very new at the whole Ham thing, but I do have both in my rig. There were a number of us at the Pacific Northwest 4 Wheel Drive Association Trail Jamboree in early July. We either ran 146.650 or one of the repeaters in the area.

My 2 meter rig, as well as most modern rigs, has the ability to scan any or all frequencies that are programmed into the radio.

I personally don't have one but two of the guys in our club have them for emergencies. I am looking into getting my license.

Check out Stu's site. He's a radio buff, and his site is full of excellent Jeep articles. I imagine his amateur radio articles are just as good.

Cheers,
Adam

I have Yaesu 1900Rs in my Jeep and Powerstroke, and have purchased, but not installed a Yaesu 2900 in my motorhome. They are very easy to program.
