I just installed a CB in my 73 CJ5, and am getting kinda hooked on CB's. I was thinking when I get my cabin built that I want to put in a CB radio w/ NOAA WX band out there for emergencies and WX info. I read some Alaskan books and some of the old timers stated that they had radios to communicate between cabins etc. I'm thinking of running a solar panel to a battery to trickle charge it, and run my CB (base station) out from there. Antenna would basically be a long run of solid copper wire ran from outside the cabin, to a tall pine as far as I can get without dying. I'm about 15-20 miles west of Kashwitna/Willow.
Any thoughts or experience?
