27Mhz SSB (aka 11M) has always had a bit of a dedicated following, and now it is seeing some resurgence due to increased skip conditions from the solar cycle.

The McKinley is a solid workhorse, without the the plastic chrome bling associated with some other 27Mhz radios. It is also about the only 27Mhz CB that allows you to reduce the power output through the menu.

Purchases can be made via our webstore.

Please note that the weather channel feature does not work in Australia.

27Mhz CB is not compatible with UHF CB. AUSCB antennas are not suitable for 27Mhz.

For 27Mhz base antennas, we recommend Shockwave Antennas . Shockwave antennas are made in Australia and are of the highest quality.  They are also happy to answer any of your antenna related questions –

For 27Mhz mobile antennas and base mounts, we recommend Mobile One Antennas.  Mobile One Antennas are another great Australian company, and have been around for a very long time (since 1973) –

EME notice: Antenna should be at least 63cm away from body of user (based on 3dbi antenna & 50% TX Duty Cycle).
