    When I was younger (mid-'80s, well after Convoy and S&tB), the REACT teams monitoring CB channel 9 were very alive & well. I always found it interesting to listen in as they relayed information over...

    No, the reason CB fell out of favor for emergencies is the explosion in popularity of cell phones. When more people started using phones to summon help directly, REACT simply realized there was...

    The 60" definitely comes in handy if you have a rig with a slinky suspension.

    Not sure how you figure that when the whole mount is one with the ground (shield) of your feedline and passes the RF current through to the vehicle's body... :confused:

    I'm thinking you must not understand how a capacitor works like a short-circuit at RF (radio frequencies), or how the bottom of a magnet mount is constructed to function as such when it is placed...

    "Cheaper" is the only one of those I can agree with (and both are also quite very "proper" too). But to each his own.

    Should be fine.

    Any well-designed controller should simply see the alternator as another charging source coming online, and will simply turn itself off or suspend charging.

    I think if I understand your question correctly, you want to switch the same set of speakers between your tape unit (runs off truck battery) and your amp & mp3 (runs off aux battery)?

    I think you're confusing lumens with "lux".

    Lux is a measure of luminous intensity against a surface or object (and decreases with distance).
