This CB radio kit was put together to make things easier for our customers to easily select the products they need to get a base station CB system.
Here are the basic components for a Base Station CB system; the radio, the power supply (if you are using a mobile CB radio instead of a base station CB radio), the coax, and the antenna.
Base Station CB Radio
We have selected the Galaxy DX2547 first, as this is the only base station radio that we offer that will plug directly into your wall outlet.
You can choose to get a mobile CB radio, like the DX959, but will require an additional power supply. The power supply is plugged into your wall outlet and your mobile CB radio will be connected to the power supply. This is generally cheaper than selecting the Galaxy DX2547 even though you would be purchasing two products (mobile CB radio and power supply) instead on one product, the DX2547. We have selected the DX959 and PS12 for this kit. You will still need to select a base station antenna and coax for that option.
Keep in mind that, regardless of size, all CB radios have a power output of 4 watts as allowed by the FCC.
If you select a radio without a built-in SWR meter, you will need an external SWR meter (you can select one in the accessories tab) to tune your antenna. Tuning your antenna is VERY important. Find out more in our Help Center: How to Tune a CB Antenna
