I want to buy a CB radio for inside my house. What equipment do I need? Do I need an antenna, or is there a CB i can buy that has an antenna built into the base?

You can get either kind, but an external antenna will determine your broadcast range. If the antenna is going to be over a certain height you have to notify the FAA. I should know this but I don't, so I'm guessing you don't need an FCC license for CB, but ham radio operators DO need to be licensed. The current fine for unauthorized use of the bandwidths regulated by the FCC is $ 7,500.
