A cb can be helpful if your not,
Near a city
Near a interstate
In the south.
Just my opinion.

That's not green Bansil...it's sky blue and I agree (it matches the satellite hook up) so keep that one.

I have some cheap Uniden one I got for like $25 off Amazon. During my maiden voyage trip ~a year ago (has it been that long already?) I had it on most of the time. Lots of banter but it DID help me avoid running over an "alligator" (blown up tire in the road). That was basically my first time driving the bus and I was paying more attention to the gauges and every noise I heard than the road! I was also warned about a few speed traps but that was irrelevant because the limit was 70 and I was chugging along at 65.

We will have to get one when we are more mobile. My friend who goes off roading has one. It seems like added security!

I might buy a CB when I go to Texas to pick up Texas. I have an Amateur Radio License(Ham Radio) and am taking a 75 watt 2 meter radio with me. 75 watts goes a lot farther than 4 watts with a CB and I'm legal.

Coming back from Tennessee on I40, I had no cell coverage through much of Oklahoma with Verizon.
