Matching CB Equipment to the Vehicle Environment 770319

The design of a Citizens Band radio system for a vehicle is a series of compromises due to the interaction between the CB equipment and its environment. The designer of the CB equipment and the designer of the system, whether vehicle manufacturer or installer, share a responsibility to consider these interactive effects to assure maximum operator acceptance. This paper will consider the interactive effects of the atmospheric environment, mechanical considerations, vehicle power supply, electrical transients, equipment security, operator interface, electromagnetic radiation and legislation upon the design of CB transceivers and their installation in the vehicle.
