Looking to getting another ssb set up again.
Gotta hit the market for another since the Cobra 19 is far from it.
Any of you guys talk on ssb?
I love Galaxy 959 perfect for unlocking clarifier and talking long skip

I want to get my scanner hooked up in the truck then was looking at getting into ssb or a small ham set for the truck, once I’m licensed

You don’t need a license for ssb?

No ssb and lsb is legal as long as you stay on the 11 meter cb radio or 10 meter all your doing is shooting skip when it comes in which is Max 12 watts but sometimes you can call another state in there just never know

All your doing is adding a jumper wire to ur amp.you run your antenna to the amp then use ur jumper to ur cb radio.
Besides you gotta install the amp with at least 6 gauge or bigger wire smaller and you'll fry it.
Has your radio been set up to use a amp
