I've got a long trip planned for this summer:
Unfortunately, it's travel for a work move, not fun.
I'm just wondering if there's any use to installing a cb radio in the truck?
Or is it pretty much gone by the wayside now and useless?
I was thinking of picking up a cobra 29 (used or new, doesn't matter) or something similar. Somewhere around 100-150 bucks, all in, after sourcing an antenna.
It would be nice to get some real time local info on traffic, police, wrecks, road conditions, etc....does that stuff still come across like it did way back a couple decades ago?
Is there any sense to getting on with weather bands, or is that just a waste of time outside of major cities (why you would bother transmitting weather in major cities anyways escapes me)?
