Cell Phones have killed the use of CB's man. all the truckers now are on their Blue tooth headsets these days (which you can get Bluetooth CBs now as well). once in a while you can catch some dudes talking skip from pretty far out, and that is pretty cool. I have a guy somewhat local to me (less than 10 miles as crow flies) that I hear on the radio all the time that is at a base station pushing a few hundred watts.
