CB Radios and Antenna Restrictions
About CB Antennas
CB Radios are limited on their range by their power output, and the quality of their antenna systems.  Typically CB
Base Radios have the longest line of sight range due to having the space to use both larger antennas, and able to
mounting them at a higher heights.  An amplifier can boost your power, but does very little for your receive, even
with the best preamp.  This is because CB Radios operate at a noisy frequency by nature, so a preamp will almost
always bring in a higher noise floor along with a stronger received signal.  CB Antennas and height is by far your
best bang for buck with both improving transmit and receive range.  See our
CB Antennas Home page for more
