She bought me one for Christmas a few years ago but I thought it was too expensive and exchanged it for two Chatterboxes so we could talk to each other. Those things didn’t work and I sent them back. That has been a sore spot since. I will probably never exchange another gift from my very thoughtful wife ever again!
Diana eventually came into a unit like this that was used. She is the third owner. The two previous owners were members of our HOG Chapter and both upgraded to touring bikes that had CB’s after owning this one for a short spell. So Diana has been using this radio with much success… at half the investment of a new one!
I on the other hand have been experimenting with a cheap substitution in the way of a Midland handheld unit wired up in a multitude of ways. At first it worked alright but by this year I could just use it for rudimentary communication. One word answers and such. I’m sure it’s partly my fault as I have never been a good listener but I can’t tell what anyone is saying half the time.
