With all the talk of booging coming soon, there is talk about coms. What about cb radio? I know there is limited range and no security. Can it be used as a starting point?

Right now, with they way the Sun Spot cycle is, CB is dead. You can still use it for short distance, but hardly anyone is using the band anymore. Maybe some truckers still? I read an article on the latest Cannonball Run record being broken, and what those guys used. They said they took a CB radio along, and said it was totally useless.

Maybe for some it’s only short but I run a big a$$ radio and a massive mall dropping amp. I get out an easy 40 miles. Red neck cell phones are absolutely the way to go! Your cell phone will be worthless, there will be no FaceTime etc. BIG mud duck crushing CBs are absolutely necessary and the way to go.

No, mainly because of the two defects you listed. Now if you have the ability to tweak the freqs a little they will do a little better. It's not hard to do either.
