Hello everyone, I'm new on here & to this life style, Although i did drive trucks all over Europe for 17 years,
My question is does anyone use CB radios on the road, because they were a god send in the trucks to keep in contact with others, So if you had a problem you could call out & if anyone was in reach they could come & you.. Thanks

not many use them these days .
but if traveling in a group cheap walky talkies work ok.
have cb here but not used it as there is hardly anyone out there.
think all the ex truckers have it but in a box just for keep sakes .
certainly if going ionto morocco best not show antennas etc they take the sets off you. give them back as you leave 3 months later.

Don't think I have used mine for 15 years... still got it mind. Much the same as Alan in that I can't throw anything out.... going to have to soon.

Last time I turned mine on, there was no one on it, but I am rural.
Guessing it would be handy in a convoy, but legislation abroad is probably different than here.
Mine was illegal though, HyGainV.
Time moves on I guess!
