Right Channel Radios gets a Facelift!

August 28th, 2012

Have you seen the new look of Rightchannelradios.com? In February, we gave our site a facelift by adding tons of new features, product information, and a more intuitive design. One of the most exciting aspects of the new site is the amount of new product information that we were able to add. We’ve learned a ton about CB products, installs, and accessories since opening RCR, and we’ve done our best to share that information so you can make the best decisions possible.

One of the new shopping features that we think is very helpful is the ability to browse products through different categories. For example, when you enter our site and click on the “Browse all CB Radios” button, you will have the option to display only the radios that fit what you are looking for. If you are in the market for a radio that gets NOAA weather channels, all you need to do is click on the “Weather” option and you will only see products that include weather channel. You can browse CB radios by their features, size, type, manufacturer, and price. This same feature is available when browsing CB antennas. You can shop for antennas by length, type, mounting location, and manufacturer.

If you are not sure what CB parts to get for your car, Jeep, SUV, truck, or equipment, we have added an in-depth category that allows you to shop parts for specific vehicle types. Just click on the “Equipment by Vehicle” category and you will have the option to choose your vehicle type and see what CB parts are recommended. As always, we offer many complete CB packages that include everything you need for a full CB installation.

In addition to our products, our site features the industry’s largest free CB resource library. Wether you are just looking for information about how to choose a CB radio, or you are a professional driver looking for a CB troubleshooting guide, our CB resources will help you find the answers you are looking for.

We hope you enjoy the new site and would love to hear feedback about the new features, product information, and look.

New SSB CB Radio from Uniden

July 2nd, 2012

The introduction of the Uniden 980 marks a big day for the SSB CB community. While the SSB community is very active, it is small, and as a result often overlooked when new products are designed. Now, SSB users can enjoy a CB radio that has newer features like a large LCD display, integrated NOAA weather channels, system diagnostics, and memory channel while having SSB capability. Uniden has been making quality CB products for years and we won’t be surprised if the Uniden 980 SSB breathes new life into the SSB community.

CB Radios and Text Messaging?

May 29th, 2012

Until recently, combining CB radio and text message technology seemed like mixing oil and water. It just doesn’t work, right? Cobra has changed that reality with the introduction of the new Cobra 29 LX BT. Spearheading the “hands free” CB movement, the Cobra 29 LX BT can pair with your Bluetooth cell phone and display incoming text messages on the screen of your CB radio. If your phone has voice recognition technology, you can compose text messages and/or place phone calls by speaking into the bluetooth CB microphone. We are thrilled about this new radio and believe that CBers will be seeking out this remarkable new product!

Three new CB’s from Cobra!

April 11th, 2012

To help us welcome spring 2012, Cobra has introduced three new CB radios. Staying in line with the current Cobra fashion, all these radios are similar to the Cobra 29 LX as they feature large multi-color LCD displays. Of the new radios, the most notable is the Cobra 25 LX.

Cobra 25 LX CB Radio

CB users who do not have enough cab space to fit the beastly 29 LX can now choose its smaller cousin, the 25 LX. The Cobra 25 LX features many of the same CB functions as the 29 LX, but in a smaller package. Some of the primary features are system diagnostics, channel scan, and PA. Other than the size, the primary difference between the Cobra 25 LX and the Cobra 29 LX is that the 25 does not offer a NOAA weather function and a SWR meter.

Cobra 29 LX BT

Next in line is the Cobra’s newest Bluetooth compatible radio, the Cobra 29 LX BT. Replacing the popular Cobra 29 WX NW BT, the new Cobra 29 LX BT offers NOAA weather channels, channel scan, system diagnostic, along with Cobra’s Bluetooth microphone. Syncing this CB radio with your cell phone is an easy and great way to take phone calls through your CB radio. Many states require that drivers use “hands free” accessories to take cell phone calls, and the Cobra 29 LX BT allows you to operate your cell phone within the parameters of the law.

Cobra 29 LX Chrome CB Radio

Lastly, Cobra has introduced their first limited edition LX series radio, the Cobra 29 LX Chrome. This CB radio is enclosed in a customer chrome CB cabinet with a large impression of the Cobra logo on top. Ideal for CBers who want a little “flash” along with a quality CB radio.

The Cobra 25 LX and Cobra 29 LX Chrome are available and shipping, while the Cobra 29 LX BT is expected to arrive in May 2012.

Right Channel Radios Introduces VHF Marine Radios!

November 9th, 2010

Right Channel Radios would like to welcome VHF Marine Radios to its product line! CB radios have always been and will continue to be RCR’s core business but we are excited to help boaters receive the same great service we provide to CB users. This is a natural step for Right Channel as VHF marine radios are similar to CB radios in many ways.

VHF Marine Radios

The VHF Radio is standard equipment on almost all watercraft that is navigating large bodies of water. The VHF Radios primary use is to communicate with other watercraft, monitor weather, and send or respond to emergency signals. VHF Radios power range is typically between 1 and 25 watts and operates in the frequency range of 156 MHz to 174 MHz. Similar to CB’s VHF Radios utilize multiple channels many of which are designated for specific uses. Channel 16 and 9 are the emergency channels which are monitored by the United States Coast Guard 24 hours a day. VHF radios are available in either fixed mount or handheld versions.

VHF Antennas

VHF Antennas operate similar to CB antennas. In order for the antenna to be effective the tip must be in an open area free from obstructions. The most significant difference between Marine VHF antennas and CB antennas is that marine antennas do not need to be tuned. The Marine radio antenna is much more of a plug and play product as all you need to do is mount the antenna and attach the coax to the radio and you are ready to broadcast.

Marine Antenna Mounts

There are a variety of VHF antenna mounts that allow the boater to attach the antenna to flat surfaces, curved surfaces, rails, and vertical walls. Many Marine Antenna Mounts feature ratchets and allow the user to quickly lay the antenna down. Most VHF antennas are made of either nylon or stainless steel and have different antenna height and weight capacities. Marine Antennas are easy to install and operate.
