From scanner use, I would be surprised if you achieved anything with 49mhz, unless you use it in a very remote location, as it is full of baby monitors.

Wouldn't a base antenna make it illegal to use anyway.
And as said if you interfered with a baby monitor well one in my family it could get painful when i found out who it was.

Stephan why not go for the old 26.965 mhz, that was the old illegal cb band , there are tons of old am cb's knocking about. the police used to say it caused them interference back in the day, now they are on tetra I do not see a problem ,

Nubster ,no i did not know the old AM channels are now legal, I still have a few of my old am rigs.
There is no point using them because no one is on them ,Maybe in the summer if conditions are right with the sun spots, I might hook them up ,to see if I can still get the odd American trucker on the skip ?
Most days in my area there are at the most 6 people on channel,all on 19,on FM
I am a few years older than you,and remember the camaraderie that went with illegal am rigs,

Nubster ,nice one, there are no networks up here ,on any cb modes, not many people on at all.
I remember in the old day's a station near Crick off the MI, called station Orange, who was the guy who monitored traffic, he used to do then what a sat nav does now,
Most people today would sooner text than talk, 
Take care

Could be wrong but are most baby monitors , cordless phones etc not using uhf freqs ? Must be very old units to still be running analogue 49mhz monitors. Very rare to hear cordless phones / baby monitor transmissions on 49mhz  here anymore.

I am surprised the government has not locked down cB radio because of convid,
People talking to each other cannot be allowed,
I break the law every day, my crime I drive to the local park to walk my dog,
Your lucky living out in the sticks,some fantastic countryside around the National Park .
We stayed in one of the campsites near Kelso a few years back.
