Yes, you CAN use it as a base station, but you will also need to purchase a 12V REGULATED Power supply. It must be a Regulated supply or you could risk damaging the radio with power spikes. You should also get a base antenna. The only major difference between a base and mobile, other than aesthetics, is that the mobiles are designed to operate on 12V DC Current, and the Base Stations are designed to run on standard 110V-120V AC house current. The 12V power supply drops the current down and converts it to 12V DC.
