For most folks a cellphone takes the place of CB for actual communications these days. Back in the 70s my Mom got into it heavily, I suspect mainly because it gave her a way to check up on Dad when he was away from the house! Of course you had your usual characters on the radio, and she became obsessed with what she considered their profanity and other "illegal communications". She literally had garbage bags full of tapes she had made of them! Finally got tired of it I guess, last we had a working radio was probably about 1990. I have a walkie talkie stuffed in the emergency kit for the car in case I'm in a cell "dead area" but that's about it. Nowdays it's just a party line for truckers and bored people.
