    Meh. You’ll spend good money to get a good handheld. My cheap CB works fine.

    my cheap CB did work fine, but if I keep spending on cheap CBs then I'll total enough to have just gotten a handheld.

    What do you do to ruin these things? Use the mic as a hammer?

    CB signals won’t be very strong coming in our out of the cab of your truck. Think about why people run 4’ antennas just to get the plane over the cab.

    i don't know the tech behind all this junk, nor do I care to....why does HAM work so well, just because it's on different waves?

    It’s like comparing FM radio to AM radio basically.

    I want to say CB runs in the 20-30 MHz range and Ham is generally in the 140s depending on the band you’re using.

    I had a HAM in my truck last weekend, the 1st one was a cheap one and it was not good, swapped to a better more $$$ one and it worked good. So even if you get a HAM you need to spend the $$$. But like Trey said get a Uniden Pro520xl, a lot of people run them and have no issues, I use them in my Tacoma and Samurai.

    Make sure they are tuned or they will not last long, any of them

    Child booster seat, spilled glitter slime, chicken nugget crumbs, spilled milkshake in cupholder, and many more courtesy of daughter.
    its the one I use as well as well as well. Just do this Scotty. Its super tiny, great mounting options, and unquestionably the best cheap option. Also, before buying a new CB, did you consider double checking with another mic? Or double checking your wiring? I know that my antenna isn't grounded as well as it could be, and I get loads of static, but still have a great range, even untuned lol.
