You will need a AC to DC power supply ( check out the buy2wayradio) website for items needed. You will need coax and you will need an antenna for the 27Mhz - 11m frequency / Band.

Indoor antennas for CB are not very popular - efficiency low, and this limits range - if you cannot get an outside antenna, you might not hear very much at all - depending on how busy your area is? I’d give the forum owners a ring if you need everything as a package - they’re really helpful.
