Hand Held CB
Handhelds are very good if you have a specific use for them, otherwise you might find them to be a waste of money.
Because of their small antenna the range is very limited. Expect about 2 miles out in the open and possibly only half a mile in a built-up area!
All these handhelds have the facility to connect an external antenna, and if you do then you will get a similar range to a fixed CB radio. Connect them to an external 12v supply as well, and you will get a full 4 Watts output.
If you buy one of these so that you can sit inside your house and talk to other CB'ers, then you will probably be disappointed and find you have wasted your money. If you are going out on the hills and want a cheap means of communication, then you will find these to be excellent radios.
Some of the accessories and spares which you may need to go with your handheld are listed on the right - click on any for more details.
In addition to CB handhelds we also stock a range of license free PMR446 handhelds. These give a similar range to CB handhelds but because they are on UHF frequencies they are much smaller and more efficient.
