Default CB HANDHELD

Hi All

I have been offered a mint condition Intek H512 Handheld. Can you advise me:

A) Are they any good

B) Is it possible to work DX using one of these?

C) If so, is there a DX calling channel

Local CB in the UK is in the main a waste of time with Channel 19 constantly full of foul mouthed idiots, drunken morons, music and mike keyers!

Any help would be appreciated

HT's only run 1 watt and the existing antenna is not sufficient for DX. Good rig for local chit-chat but useless beyond the limited range of a kilometer or two on its best days.

Are you sure about that?
