Home Forums Truck Camper Adventure Forum CB radio range Reply To: CB radio range


From the Internet “The average range depends on the type of CB radio that you have and your location. But I have done some research that will give you an idea. A general rule of thumb is that CB radios have a range of around 3 miles to 20 miles depending on the model, antenna, and external factors that may affect the range.”

Although the one I have in my truck would be at the lower end of that quote. I put on in simply to listen for accidents on the Interstate so we can get off before we hit traffic jams. Very seldom do we hear anything. You can go spendy and get more features, but reportedly no more range than with cheap models. I am only using a short antenna so I expect my range to be quite limited. Plenty of info on the Internet for those interested.
