No, I really am just asking if there's any technical advantage to doing it that way. If it was just about power, I could pick up a dozen high power amplifiers off Craigslist right now in under an hour, along with three Galaxy radios. If there's no technical merit, I'll pick up another Cobra 29 and call it a day. As far as one guy asking, and it starting a domino effect...I'd say that started well over 20 years ago, and just about every guy driving OTR has an illegal radio these days. You're certainly free to believe that if I had the equipment, I'd use it to the full potential, and there's really no way to convince you that I really don't have any interest in CB beyond it being an on-trail radio, and that I still prefer my ham radios to the CB any day. Of course, all that said, I'm one stranger talking to a bunch of others. I gain, nor lose, anything if people here choose to "read between the lines", and believe something other than what I've said.
