Does anyone use CB radios any more?


Recommended Posts

I've got a pair old amateur CB radios in the cupboard I thought I might chuck in my vehicles but no one seems to sell gear for them I anywhere!

Are they technically obsolete now? That seems to be what people say when I mention CB's. What do truckers use these days?

Mine are about 20 yrs old, but they still work fine.

they are definitely not obsolete. i consider them mandatory trail equipment, i won't wheel with someone that doesn't have a cb, you gotta communicate on the trail. they're also great in the tow vehicle, so you can keep in contact with the whole convoy at one time if you have a group towing their rigs down. cell phones have replaced them a lot, but a cell phone isn't gonna give you open free contact back and forth with your whole group at once.
