Used to be, I wouldn't even consider a road trip without a CB in the car. It's invaluable for keeping up-to-the minute on road conditions, traffic jams, construction, etc.
But with the increasing popularity of GMRS/FRS, I gotta wonder - Is it time to ditch the CB ? Has GMRS yet reached a "critical mass" where sufficient truckers and other pro drivers are using it enough to be worthwhile ? Do police and emergency services monitor GMRS the way they used to on CB channel 9 ?
