    Still run 40 channel with weather band. Sits on weather 98% of time. Not much going on anymore. Occasionally will get someone. Local quarry uses them.
    Spanish broadcasting stopped a few years ago. It's still legal to use were phone are not many places. Especially road use. My practical range here is about 5 miles but have gone as far as 15.
    Not like years ago when more used them. With a good antenna could skip hundreds in the right weather conditions. But then I don't play on it like years ago.
    They still have a place especially if traveling in groups.

    I have one in my truck and car. Used a lot around here by the farmers. Just scored a factory am/cb for the w- 150 just have to put it in.
