    Citizen Band Radio for Expedition

    In the UK cb radios are now licence exempt. Check with Norway. There are two cb band plans - UK and EU. EU channels should not be used in the UK and vice versa. Getting a multi standard 80 channel cb (40 uk, 40 EU) would be a good bet and not too expensive. Much better range then pmr. Due to...
