    OF course the answer is THE PRICE OF HIS TOYS.


    I went out a bought a handheld CB radio today.

    I live about a mile from I-90 - didn't hear too much on Ch 19.


    Who else has a CB?

    I've used them in the church vans when that was our only way of communication between vehicles before cell phones but we don't need them anymore.

    Have fun with the new toy!!

    Very few people are using cb's anymore. Most are going to ham radios.

    I had a friend who worked for Marlboro. They had purchased marketing items that they were later restricted from distributing and he was told just to take them home. Anyway, ended up with two handheld cb radios with the Marlboro logo. I’d talk to my son for a couple of miles on my way to work. Lost ‘em, but they were fun while they lasted.

    When I was younger we all had CB's. I guess the cell phone replaced the CB radio for us. Now we can talk to each other, use apps to see accident locations and where the police are sitting as we go 90 mph down the interstate.

    Yea, I'm old fashion - still wear a tie and jacket to church, prefer a choir over a (so-called) praise team, like model trains, use the greasy kid stuff to comb my hair and of course communicate by CB

    I remember showing my son how the handheld CB’s worked. It wasn’t long before I heard something I didn’t want to hear…and certainly didn’t want my son to hear and that was it for using the CB on the road.

    My father was a truck driver and growing up we always had the CB on.

    The difference is with cb's there needs to be someone on the other end to communicate with.


    I like trains as well.
