CB Radio – 4,000 watt mobile station

leave a comment »

CB folks do crazy stuff.

Check out this video of a car of a CB’er decked out with a 4,000 watt  mobile station.  Near the end of the video he keys up this setup and gets nearly 3,600 Watts on a power meter.

I have a suspicion that this is perhaps a bogus video.  The reason is that I have seen videos of other high power stations and usually high power knocks out or distorts the video image.  When this guy keys up 3,000+ watts about 15 feet from the video camera there is no affect on the video image.
