I found this video interesting. This video helped me understand how the ground and metal plane work in relation to broadcast of a radio signal. Maybe you'll find it helpful when deciding on where you place your antenna. I'm very much a fan of hoo...

While this radio is more than the other Stryker, I like that if you do use it in the CB band, you can turn it down to the legal 4 watts. Having AM, FM, Sideband, etc. this radio is a home run! Amazon has some great reviews and Q&A - https:/...

Okay so we have the Motorola to Beartooth the CB and amateur radio. Jeremy Wolff and I were talking last week about the feasibility of having one radio for all frequencies. While it appears possible on 10 and 11 meter (is that right? Lol), I would ha...

Motorola just came out with a Beartooth killer. A $50 radio that does everything the Beartooth unit does and it has 35 MILES of range with the off-grid smartphone/mesh network. That's pretty incredible and I'm a big fan of the Motorola antennas and r...
