Wow! Radio communication has made big strides over years if I look at your kit.
Switching antenna's is new to me, as we were used to a one size fits all.
I owned two tow trucks many years ago that were fitted with CB radios and one had to have a "handle" (Nickname) to operate it. So I would turn the thing on and say "Bishop" is in the house, what's up?" and then the traffic reports would come in.
It was a dog eat dog world as at times there were 5 trucks rushing to the same accident and it was first come first served.
Eventually it was a losing game and I sold the trucks.
But oh yeh, you have a great setup and it is so essential in the wild and yonder.
