[BLOG] Installing Two-Way Radios in my Car

This was a fun little project that took months of planning (since I had no idea what I was doing) to add amateur and CB radios to my car:

@yaakov how active is CB radio in your part of the world? i occasionally pick up some traffic but usually one-sided. i noticed some CB radios on Amazon having extended bands that i wasn't aware of even existing.

i listen with a #HackRF with a #PortaPack and a Whistler 1080 for DMR/P25 snarfing

@emory UHF CB gets used quite a bit by business and industry, particularly traffic controllers on constructions sites. There are a few repeaters in town that I’m usually out of range of but they get a bit of traffic too. There also seems to be a bar or hotel around here somewhere that uses the roads channel for their own use.
