    Mines powered from a cig lighter, but the socket is permanently on. I only plug it in for landing trips. I've also got a signal splitter from Thunder pole that let's me use the cb aerial for the car radio as well, much better reception than the old radio aerial

    now that sound very interesting

    my radios reception is crap

    got the CB bracket that goes onto the spare wheel

    u would do me a big favour and send me an email explaining how u did it would please , ie pics etc

    or if easier put it into the freelander section plse

    funny enough I've got a cig lighter that I bought that's got two wires already installed, needs extending to reach the CB , just read in not using it off the cig lighter, but would make my life eaiser

    I saw this bit of kit on another forum, and thought it might solve the terrible radio reception I had with the little roof mounted aerial, because a 90 needs a LOUD radio!

    The splitter Zetagi DX27 CB Radio Splitter | Filters | THUNDERPOLE doesn't need a power supply, and has really improved the radio reception. It runs off the red flexy aerial shown.

    My only proviso is I haven't really used it for CB operations as the opportunity hasn't arisen. I have however picked up somebody's CB message, and it seemed clear enough.I thought it was worth a £20 shot anyway.
    Hope this helps!

    Will you be coming up the M11? If so, there's a truck stop at Alconbury where we could meet up.

    being honest I haven't looked at the route yet, only the distance and time

    will have a look to see in more detail and see if we come pass that way

    Makes sense to go M25>M11>A14 if meeting with peeps from up that way, but check for road works around the M1/M6/A14 junction area.

    had a look at the map and it's saying m25 then m1

    im happy to do what everyone else is doing , afterall it's about everyone on route and diverting to do that isn't a problem for me

    a few of us are going to start at the Thurrock services

    so does everyone want us who's starting at the Thurrock services to go via the m11 instead of the m1

    Depending when your traveling I could join as your driving past my front door on the a14. Not sure where I will be living at the time but probably Cambridge services (extra) on the a14

    Cambridge services might be a better site for the meet, I can't get any response from the truck stop, and from the website it looks as though at least the cafe is closed. Boxworth, Cambridge, CB23 4WU

    RAC reckons it will take you about that long to get to Cambridge, so we can set off a cording to your itenenennerry

    sorry for being so dim but always like to ask the dumb questions

    we will of course let u know what time we set off



    as we may stop off for a break and also to give my dogs a stretch

    think as long as we all communicate with each other we can turn it into organised chaos, lol
