    I have both. I prefer my UHF, simply because I can get out and walk around and use it while spotting. I still do use, and love, my CB though!

    I like the new technology but I use a CB because the ranchers, farmers and other outdoorsmen around here use them almost exclusively. It's tough to call for help if nobody's listening.
    Direction, then velocity.

    Uniden 980 SSB but interested in adding a 25 or 50 watt dual band.

    I have both - Cobra 75wxst on a grab bar mount; and a Yaesu 7900r mounted from my footman loop; CB antenna in the back, and VHF/UHF antenna in the front.

    I personally prefer VHF/UHF, but still have a lot in our group that have CB only. In Michigan there are a lot of active repeaters on VHF/UHF throughout the state that I've programmed in, so in an emergency type situation, there may be better odds of reaching someone with it. Well, that and in my case I run a short CB antenna that is really only good enough to reach about a mile or so tops.

    Plan for anything.

    I have a 2-meter ham radio I use daily and mounted forward of the shifter.
    I have a Cobra 75 CB hidden and in the glovebox, since that is the most ubiquitous on the trail. The antenna is magnetic on the tire carrier and stored inside off the trail.
    And I have some GMRS radios on standby, but those haven't been used in years.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
