I have a Midland 75-822 that I use. It is a hand held radio that comes with an attachment to connect it to the jeep cigarette lighter and you can attach an antenna as well. I have a magnet mount antenna that I hook it up to when I need to use it. That way I only hook it up when I need it.

This radio works very well. Even in when using the hand held antenna.

I would suggest taking a look at this radio if you don't want to permanently install one. I am sure you will get a lot of opinions on how well this radio works.

I have never been on a Jeep jamboree so I am not sure what they require for radio's.

just another plug for CBs. wish more car drivers had them. anyway, on the way to work this morning heard about a 3 car fender bender in the hammer lane. I was heading north right into it in the right lane. found out the exact location and was able to detour quickly around it. while doing so I reported back to those that were behind what they could do as well.

the traffic was still moving in the right two lanes but that would soon come to a halt as first responders began to arrive, state troopers in the left lane, two flatbeds in the right breakdown lane which would then have to cross 3 lanes of traffic to reach the accident, pus the rescue truck and fire truck that passed me as I detoured. that highway north was shutting down and I just zipped past it. thank you CB (& gps...)

yes, exactly right.

I just flip it on and forget about it. sometimes it comes in handy, sometimes, not so much. very good way to get immediate local geographic info.

one time running to CT from Boston for an event on a Friday night I was able to take multiple detours based on truckers suggestions and avoided a 4 hr backup due to a multicar fatality on RT 84. the rest of our company's employees rolled into the hotel around 1am but I was already fast asleep. I didn't know who was where so I couldn't reach out to them by cell phone while driving and detouring. if we had been caravanning and all had radios or at least one in the caravan was on top of things we could have all diverted together. we just didn't travel like that back then

Talking

We had a CB on the Trailhawk, with a tall antenna on a magnetic mount on the hood. The door clearance in our old garage is so low that we would wipe the antenna off if we left it in place so, when we headed out on a trip, we set it up after we backed out of the garage. We'll mount it on the Wrangler in about 2 weeks, when we head to the back road to Barkerville. I can't wait! - Ted
