Question about Radio Shack TRC-503 CB Radio
I plugged in my cell phone, to the cigarette lighter of my 1993 Dodge van. It didn't seem to charge. Now I'm thinking about buying a CB Radio. I don't know anything about them. I thought maybe I could get one for my son too, but he doesn't have a vehicle. Do C B Radios work from electricity, too, or just from a vehicle? I don't know what brand of C B Radio to get. I'll need one with tech support. Thanks, Donna
I do a line by line reply to your questions:
Q) Do C B Radios work from electricity, too, or just from a vehicle?
A) You will need to buy a 12volt power supply to power the CB if you are using it in your home. Also you will have to have a house mounted antenna.
Statement) I don't know what brand of C B Radio to get. I'll need one with tech support.
Reply) For simplicity, I would suggest getting a Realistic brand CB from Radio Shack, they will also have the antenna and installation hardware (for home and vehicle) along with a SWR meter (you will need this, trust me). As for tech support well any brand you go with will be a problem in the area of tech support, most of the time you will have to find a CB shop or some that is CB savvy to act as your tech support.
I hope this helps
