A CB radio is a two-way radio. The radio transmits directly to another radio, and receives transmissions directly from other radios, and it's all done on the same frequency. While this is often erroneously referred to as simplex transmission, it is actually what's know as half duplex transmission.

CB radios can only communicate with other radios which are on the same bandwidth. Hence, the receiving radio must also be a CB radio. There are base station, permanent mobile mount, and handheld CB radios available. They cannot communicate with 10/15/2 metre etc. ham radios, they cannot communicate with FRS, GMRS, etc. radios - they can only communicate with other CB radios.
