Jeep Radio
« on: September 09, 2020, 01:45:35 PM »
Sorry, I am a bit old school.  Just wondering if people are still running radios in their Jeep or not.  I have a CB, but as the saying goes, it takes 2 to tango.  What is everyone running in their rig, or are most people going with the handhelds?  If so, what channels are you on (just so I can program mine to match). 

Thanks,

Randy

I removed my CB this year as it seems all events and clubs now use the small FRS radios.   The Jeep Jamborees in the states still use CB's but the guides carry FRS.   FRS seems to work better for our club as long as Matt or Rob are around to give ya instructions.
