I've just got back into 4wding after 6 years of car travel and got my old 27Mhz (AM & SSB) out of storage to put into my 4wd and a couple of my mates laughed and asked who I thought I could speak to.Every-one now has UHF!Is this true or do plenty of people still use them?

I took mine out 3 years ago . Went up the Cape with it , never even turned it on , so took it out when we got home . Yours mates are right , very few people use them now ,UHF is the way to go .Why go overseas when you can Exploroz

When we bought our GU about 18 months ago, we never bothered installing our 27Mhz radio. Just don't know anyone who's using them anymore.

I have a long range Barrett HF radio and UHF, but the 27 meg SSB is still in there as back up. I have communicated effectively over 2500km while mobile on that 27 meg (Alice area to Hobart), using a 5 foot whip. Its my backup in case the Barrett goes down. Try 2500 km with UHF. That said, the UHF is great of course for minor, line of sight distances, and I would not suggest people spend hunddreds on 27 meg. A good quality second hand one is not to be sniffed at, if it performs well on SSB (12 watt mode).Love the bush - stuck in the city - help.
