    I bought this last year and love it. Not very many people have heard of it.

    Push to talk isn't quite hands free.  Cool idea though!

    Another thing to consider is having Rugged Radios as a sponsor. They currently sponsor my Club and offer a discount to members!

    Any information on where/how to order a kit?  Been wrestling with this one a while. RadioWorld has some wireless mic kits, but they're bit $$ when last I spoke with them.

    My service / sales representative at Rugged Radios was Evan Barnard <evan@ruggedradios.com>. Evan's efforts were commendable from my first contact to post sales follow-up.

    So, you only need to push once and it locks for you to speak ? then press again to release to hear, etc.. ?

    and do any regular cb's have option to press once to hold position, so you can leave mike attached to a clip and just press, talk, press again to hear ?
    or do all cb's require to press and hold until finished talking ?  If speaker/handsfree option exist without headset, then that's good too.
    As per the above post, you're allowed to press and speak, but not continually hold anything…

    Just wanted to double check, if some info I have is correct with your experience.

    Do CB radios (in the bush terrain or generally) get better range distance than a gmrs/frs type radios ? Both being the legal max rated wattage permitted to us (unlicensed) ?

    I'll be picking up one. Probably a handheld one and a mobile one…the gmrs ones I have don't get more than 500-600 meters in forested/northern country type areas.

    cbs tend to get better range but I suspect that is mostly due to the 3-8ft antenna on the back of the truck.  I don't know how much better a hand held one would be.
