I see they sell the 50 watt UHF and VHF systems. Spending $400 and up is out of my price range. If we could get a group buy of those at a good price, I'd want a set. The 50 watt systems are good for 30+ miles. More if they hit a repeater.

I'm pretty sure I saw that CB at Frye's. New around $40. I almost got one, but if I was getting a CB, I'd want weather channels.

YSB, I've got one of those HSX370 handheld units that are on the table. I think they're letting those go for $150. They also have a HYT TC-500 Handheld Radio they're selling for $75. I don't know the details on what frequencies those operate on but I've got one of the HSX370 handhelds that's preprogrammed with the main race freq's that are used offroad and I get great reception with it. Not sure how far it transmits though. Possibly google those and see if either of them are possibly inline for what you're looking for?

I'm picking up one of these for the truck.

http://www.ruggedradios.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=158_161&pro ducts_id=31

And 2 of these to go with it.

http://www.ruggedradios.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=111_22&prod ucts_id=17


Total price with this deal for that entire package is $325!!!! That's why I'm jumping on it right now and since I'm ordering I'm getting one of those uniden cb's also for the jeep. I've got an intercom system in my truck currently but it's old and beat up so it's just time to upgrade imo at those prices!

This makes the $35 not sound like that good of a deal, esp if it is sold as is, with no warranty.

Agreed, if you guys want to hold off, just let me know. No biggie to me... That's why I posted up the quoted part so that there wasn't anything unknown or shady going down. I'm picking one up for myself either way along with the intercom setup.

Kind of what I want, but I'd need something with higher power than the handhelds for distance. The only option for distance would be the vehicle mounted units, but unless there are others with them I'd be talking to myself.

I got a CB from someone in this group, but I wasn't told it could receive, but not transmit. Kind of useless for communication. Maybe he didn't know the radio was crap. Since it's used, I never made it an issue.

I'll probably get another CB just so I can have weather channels. Frye's has some really nice ones in the $80 range with weather and mic amps. They also have larger speakers which I kind of need in my loud Jeep.

For short distances or vehicle to vehicle, the GMRS frequencies work just fine. I was really surprised they worked in mines. I'm not quite sure how radio frequencies work. I know they work best line of sight, but they also bounce. I'm wondering if the frequencies are bounced and funneled in the mines.

Yeah, I thought I saw the same one there. No shipping of course. They have it in stock. Good warranty and you can return it locally.

They even have some there with bluetooth.

What's that? Something you get from not brushing? I knew a girl once with a blue tooth. She claimed it was from a bad filling but I knew better. It really didn't matter once the lights were off.

The cobra CB that's in my jeep right now has weather but the cb part doesn't seem to work very well which is why I figure $35 for this uniden one and move on. I had basically this same uniden unit like 15 years ago in my old CJ7 and never had an issue with it.

well if you are shady like me, you could always buy the one for 35... and if you have issues just buy the one from fry's, then return your broken one. haha!! I doubt they are recording serial numbers on anything that cheap.

You'd make a terrible villain if the scope of your capers is a mere $5.
