check with Rick or one of them that knows for sure.But I belive it won,t make a difference on what we are all doing because we don't have enough metal to get a standard wave I also belive if you wind your extra cable up in a loose circle and tie it off out of the way you'll be ok

hey Has anyone just went ahead and cut off excess cable not needed instead of coiling up excess cable and having it hanging in the roof area? I think it would look so much neater if i could just cut off excess but i want to make sure it's not causeing performance issues if i do this! A little feedback pl

Keith, from what little I know it really cuts out on your range and severely decreases the performance of it. It seems like the antennas are tuned to predefined cable lengths.

Yes, the coaxial cable can be cut but it does have to be a certain length but I do not know what that length is for these radios. With CBs it's in 3' sections if I remember correctly. The length of the coaxial cable and the length of the antenna are "tuned" to bring the standing wave to zero. You have to use a meter to tune them.

I got mine on e-bay I won a bid and paid $60.00 for it.Most of the time you are going to pay $150.00 for the radio,antenna & mic. Mine didn't come with the antenna.Only buy from a seller that will program it to the frequencies we use unless you know someone local that will do it for you.

A lot depends of how much you want to spend. You can get a very usable UHF radio on Ebay for less then $100 or you can go to rugged radio.com and put in a radio and intercom system and spend much more.

Here is a UHF Radio that is currently listed on Ebay.

Always ride with a helmet, and music up so not sure I want the rugged option, I looked into them, but dont mind to spend a little more to do it right the first time.  Just dont know enough about them to jump on ebay and get it right.  Stero...im in.  UHF... lost LOL

I first bought one like I linked in the post above but then went and got a rugged radio to match my intercom. I just finished hooking it all up in mine and am very happy with it.  The wife likes to be able to talk and not yell. She also likes to wear a helmet. Our helmets have speakers and mics in them.  I also bought the headsets with mics in case I dont feel like wearing a helmet. There is a 3.5 plug for an mp3 player to pipe music into the headphones/helmets. When you talk using the intercom, the music automatically turns itself down. I have an external speaker for the UHF radio if I don't want to wear a helmet or the headsets. My radio came pre-programmed with the 75 most used off road frequencies.

One thing I learned about rugged radio is wait until whatever you want is on sale. I am guessing I have about $1000 in my radio and intercom. The radio was regular 359.00 but I got it on sale for $200. The intercom system was almost $550 that came with the helmet kits. Also got the 2 headsets for $100 ea. The rest is assorted cables, mounting bracket, PTT button, external speaker.

Ebay is a great place to pick up used preprogrammed radios for a pretty fair price. I have one in my workshop now that I got for $100 that I am keeping until a buddy of mine get his radio situation figured out.
