CB Radios

Does anyone have any suggestions as far as CB radios, or are they not in use anymore?

We have a set of Uniden GMR2872-2CK hand held two way radios for backing up, fishing etc. Found them very helpful for backing up last year when we rented a trailer.

Cheers, Anders

Let me check with Burt Reynolds, see if he still has his.
Seriously I donít think anyone under 50 would even know how to use one.

I will go along with the 50 age, but since I'm a LITTLE older than that, we still use ours in our motorhome and sometimes backing in tight spots. It has helped me out of tight spots in towns that we have traveled thru and when were traveling along the interstates and find our selves in a traffic accident and looking for a way around.

Between the radar detector, GPS, GPS instant traffic/weather, cell phones, Iphone apps, wifi, air cards for the netbook, twitter, google satellite & roadside message displays, these days you have to try really hard to get into a spot you canít get out of.

Two years ago we traveled from PA to Up River RV resort in FL. Google streets view took me right into the campground. I was able to stand right in front of the site I was assigned. I knew exactly how I was going to back in before we even left PA. Last year visiting friends in TX I was able to see that they needed to trim a couple trees if we were going to fit in their driveway like planned.

We got a set of 2 way radios a few years ago so the DW could help me back in to campsites. I found it really helpful if I left mine turned off.

I still keep one in my truck. Does it get used much? no. I do use it on occasion when we are convoy RVing at times. It is way easier then talking on a cell phone which is techincally not legal while driving here anymore.

Just got a tweet from The Rubber-duck. He said he got rid of his CB after the big convoy in 1975.

CB radios come in handy on the road. The truckers use them regularly. I can keep up to date with what's going on up the road.

The small hand held radios are on same frequencies as CB radios.
