What do they use them for anyway? Do they shout "Sh** , I'm stuck in a big puddle/hedge/pothole etc, someone give us a tow out will ya?" on them????
Yeah basically warn each other of somthing dodgy coming up, or help im stuck etc. Mainly because when people do off roading they go as big groups and it helps keep the group connected so that if someone at the back is stuck the can help etc

Some truckers have more than a sh1t 40ch CB in the cab for talking to other truckers,like the truckers I know who have passed their foundation test ( and some who haven't passed any test and ignore rules )and run hf sets on 27 MHz ;)
You can talk worldwide on CB = not 10 - 15 miles,
Some are too far up their own @rse to admit it,
Freebanders happen to know otherwise = test free.

Well cb in my area is more alive that I thought, just sat on top of a local hill and heard a fair few local FM stations... Could I get a reply? Could I bugger haha. Dunno if it was because I was on a hill and not putting out enough power or this superstar 3900 I bought second hand off ebay is knackered... Only problem with not know anyone local, I can't test to see if a radio is work or not...
