Todd, glad you like the Chatterbox. After riding last week with Amy and Mark, I can see there are positives and negatives to both the box and CBs (Amy and Mark use CBs).
To answer your questions, I wear the Chatterbox on my helmet and like it up there. Not sure if where you wear it affects the range, but I would think so. We got much less range on them in the twisty roads. As far as hardwiring, I am guessing you mean with the radio since the unit is rechargeable. I really don't run a radio much but when I do I use batteries. In the city, I find it is not good for my concentration but I do like music for longer rides and I just use a walkman with batteries but if you were going to use it a lot, hardwiring it in would be nice.
Hope I answered all your questions. I think you'll really like it when you can talk to your wife while riding. We sure love it for that.
