I'm thinking of getting a Citizens Band radio. Yes, the kind that truckers have.

I want it because most truckers are still using them, and it seems pretty useful to get up-to-the minute weather updates, police car alerts *inb4 "bear comin at the 40, 10-4"*, and help in a local area if I were to get lost.
Also- just to talk to some people.

Does anyone on the pit have a CB radio, or know someone who does?

You can get all of this on a mobile phone.


I can get police alerts and talk to truckers from a mobile phone?

But I also want to use it to talk to my friends, I camp a lot with my friends and there's usually not a lot of cell phone service where we go so it would be useful to talk to the other guys on the road/there.

I had a ham radio once. Never made any contact with anyone, but it tasted delicious.

My dad owns one, we used to use it frequently when we went camping. It's a lot of fun, and you can get some real cheap nowadays. Go for it!

I can't be the only one to think that this is cool and want one, surely?

I'm old enough to remember when they invented the human language and even I think it's out of fashion.

If you buy one, prepared to be solicited by truckers for sex all the time, I'm dead serious.


Not sure if serious....
How can they "solicit" me for sex?

Don't worry, I want a CB and HAM. My dad, being a firefighter, has a few scanners which are pretty cool too.

I get the feeling that truckers don't want to randomly chat with people.


Haven't you seen convoy?

i have a few CBs in a box somewhere, but it's been a while since they have seen use. I used to use them all the time when I was into 4x4s and I used them on a couple of long road trips to Alaska with friends. My current car club uses Motorola 2 way radios instead.

No, I got in my car and drove to the nearest truck stop. Once I was there, I walked around the parking lot knocking on doors to find the trucker that would most accurately represent the stereotype. I found this man and took a picture of him. Any similarities to other pictures found on the internet (google, perhaps) are merely coincidental.

A few months ago my buddy and I were talking about getting some. I think CB radios are sweet and you should get one. You could find out about speed traps, what traffic is like, and just mess around on them for fun. Get one now!

Would you be interested in selling them?

A funny story- I was actually REALLY interested in getting a HAM radio license when I was in 5th grade, had the whole textbook and study guide for the test and took it to school every day. Other kids were reading Harry Potter? F uck you, I'm working on HAM regulations.

By hearing that purdy voice and wanting a little action at the truckstop at the nearest highway exit.

I think people who own CB radios who aren't truckers are considered losers.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
