Sweet man. I've got the same one. You can see it in my sig, and the brass horn under my hood is the speaker.

I never really use the PA nemore, kinda got old, but the CB is great on road trips.

put a linear amplifier and a power mic on your cb... the next time you have a kid pull up with his stereo cranked up you can key your mic and it will come through his speakers....Talk about someone ****in their pants.... :D

Or get a Larsen NMO 27b.

I'm in CB shopping at the moment. I would like to have one for the trip out to St. Louis this summer so I've been looking at Cobra's remote unit-



Basically it's a CB mic with the controls in your hand. It goes to a remote power box hidden somewhere else and takes care of the rest. Should be good for my cramped interior space what with all my other radios and crap. It's about $100 which is a little more than I want to spend so I haven't decided yet.

Is that a cobra 25ltd classic? by the way, if you need any radio advice I'm an electronics technician and I used to work for a CB shop before I got my current job.

Honestly, you really don't need a power mic for that radio if set up properly. A linear amp to boost your power output will work just fine. One of the finest is the Texas Star DX250. Easy to match to the radio and doesn't put too much draw on the electrical system.

Anyway, nice radio

I think I know what he's saying. I'll try to explain it in English.

He's saying that he has a device like the one pictured below. It plugs into your iPod and allows you to broadcast the playback of your iPod as an FM signal to your car radio.



These devices can be tuned to broadcast on ANY FM frequency. Obviously, the manufacturer intends for you to broadcast on an FM frequency that is not used by a commercial radio station in your area.

What Oohrahss is saying is that he knows what station the guys in the other car are listening to. So, he tunes his iPod transmitter to that frequency (e.g. 102.3). Supposedly, this broadcast from the iPod is more powerful than the commercial broadcast and the radio in the other car starts playing whatever is streaming from his iPod.

Cool idea. I'm gonna have to try it out to believe it. I've gotta believe that in order to get approved by the FCC, these iPod FM Broadcast devices have extremely low broadcast power. I'm not saying it's impossible -- just that I haven't tried it to verify.

Oohrahss: What brand of iPod FM transmitter do you have and have you done anything to boost the output signal?

uh i think it was just the ipod brand from apple when they first came out. I didnt do anything special but like u said its a very low signal so it would have to be at a stop light and a car with a regular antenna not one in the back window or anything. It wont work while your driving down the road or anything. There are certain stations that have realy strong signals but the station everyone listens to around here is broadcast from RI and we live in Ma so the signal isnt to strong is some areas.
