CB radio

Post by loopy »



Hello All,

I have had my 2004 1800 GL Wing for 3 months now after graduating from a 1200 wing.

I have a question re the CB radio.

I did have a 40 channel CB radio in my car 20 years ago then I changed to a 40 channel UHF radio which is what everyone uses now ( in Australia anyway).

Is the factory CB radio on my wing a 40 channel UHF radio?

PS Love my 1800 Wing

If it is a OEM CB, it's AM.

Yeah, like dawg stated, the OEM Honda CB is NOT, repeat NOT UHF, so you would not likely be able to contact anyone in Oz with it.
