    A have Yaesu FT-1900R with a magentic mount antenna. (will be changing that to a better setup soon) As far as the CB goes, I have the Cobra 29 WXNWST with a 4ft Firestick. I may add a set of walkies like that just in case! Good isea.

    Nice...I can see where those (WX) weather stations/alerts would come in handy, especially when out in the middle of nowhere. Never thought about that before. Great idea!!!

    Yep, That is why I bought it. I like having access to the weather info. I really didn't want to add a third radio so that made the Cobra an easy choice.
