hi there

l'm a tipper driver, thinking about putting a cb in my cab, but the tips we use, use motorola 2 way radios so we can talk to the office or machine drivers etc, think they operate on pmr 446???? will a cb radio be able to talk to them ??? if so what is the best cb to get on a small budget

many thanks in advance for information

You wont need CB for that,just buy a PMR446 Handset from the internet. Find out what they are using first.

CB is licence free & on 27 MHz at the top end of High Frequency & PMR 446 is a band that requires a Private Mobile Radio (PMR) licence & is on 446MHz in the Ultra High Frequency range & although there is a licence free option on 446, there would be no market for a 446 & 27 mhz radio, because as a whole people who use PMR do not have a need for CB. Plus the frequencies are so far apart, that the cost of building such a radio would be expensive & the conditions attached to licence free 446, would not make for a good CB.
However I believe there is a cheap (£300) Chinese FM amateur radio/PMR radio, that is similar to the Yaesu FT8900 that covers 10 meters (28 to 30 MHz,) 6 meters (around 50 to 52 MHz), 2 meters (144 to 146 MHz) & 70 centimetres, 430 to 440 mhz) And that could possibly cover the bands you want, however it would require a intermediate or above amateur radio licence for you to legally posses the radio & clear permission from the licence holder, to use the radio on any PMR frequency for which you do not personally hold a licence. Just so you understand that it is potentially possible to do what you want, but also potentially possible that you could also theoretically get prosecuted for simply owning the radio.
