HUGE, Single Side Band, has upper and lower, so effectively you have 120 channels, this is a simplified explanation, when the conditiond are good, you bounce the radio waves off the atmosphere, and they rebound around the country/world. You mat not be able to talk to someone down the street on SSB, but thats what AM is for. But you can never talk to UHF , impossible. I use SSB for going bush here, where there is no repeaters, got one for sale if ya want, but if you only use it on cruises, get a UHF.

I bought a UHF handheld for cruises because it's the only time I'd use it. No real need for one mounted in the dash.

why dont you just get a radio that has VOX (voice activated) headset capabilities ?

save all that stuffing around trying to interface with mic inputs.

:D One thing I have found with UHF is its a very handy thing when you travel, site on ch 40 and the truck's will tell you where all the trouble spots are IE radar and hw/patrols are, can save that way. :D
