Answer: 
You will need a base station antenna to achieve a safe SWR and best performance. Antron makes a good omni-directional antenna, but there are a few good choices available.

Answer: 
Yes, to use as a base station you would sim0ly purchase a 12 volt dc regulated power supply, which converts your house current to the 12v dc car/truck current used by the c.b. Recommend the power supply be rated at least 5 amps.

Answer: 
Depends entirely on use. Will you be going off road? Fire stick fs. Road only? Depends on vehicle want to get that coil above the roof line. Base coils are great when mounted to a metal roof, actually there ideal. Other wise a mid coil or truckers antenna is good too. Remember higher is better

CB Radio with SSB is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.

These are mostly for projects with my kids to learn about signal propagation, basic electronics, etc. These are really great radios with only a feature or two that I don't use. Love the built in SWR meter and power meters, they function as well as my outboard meters. Mic gain is good, and adjustable, but I haven't tried a power mic. The plastic face of the radio scratches easily. The display settings are nice, but the radio has to be directly facing you to read it. My setup in the mobile is such that the display isn't facing me directly and it's very hard to read. I've had a few radios over the years and I like these the best, by far. You can probably get nicer radios, but you will paying much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice radio Upon receiving my Bearcat 980 SSB radio, I was pleasantly surprised to find a very nicely packaged, very functional and attractive modern CB radio, It does everything I could ask it to do. The user interface is simple, it's easy on the eyes, and it's surprisingly quiet on receive. The product was as advertised, delivered quickly, and priced right... No complaints at all.
