CB Radio - do you use one??

I am just wondering How many people out there have a CB radio set up when they are towing? If so what channel do you use?

yes, and usually on 19 just to listen to the truckers. You will know about anything you need to know about going on with traffic and road conditions, and hear lots of things you might not want too

Works fine for groups...

We usually travel with our fivers and tt's in groups of 4 or 5... CB's are great for on road communicating with those you are traveling with for gas, food and rest stops....

Used to use CB radios on everything. Now it ham radios on simplex. Crystal clear transmissions and better range. We don't usually travel RV in groups but the radio is there for backing in, wife has portable and I listen in the truck on the installed radio, or with family as some of our kids are "hams" also. We occasionally will pick up truckers on the national simplex channel when they're in range on travels.
