We go to the international rallys where they give directions and updates over channel 14 on the cb. I have an inexpensive cb under the cabinet over the booth. When we are pulling all caravans use the cb to comunicate and its nice to be able to listen to truckers or get local info when traveling, so I have a cb in the truck. Parking in blind spots is difficult at best, we use t he truck radio and a hand held cb when doing this. The only extra equipment is the hand held cb which has a much better range (4 watts)than the walkie talkies (0.5 watts). We used to use the walkie talkies in the malls and flea markets, but we have found the cell phone to be much better and person to person for us is free.
Keep the shiny side up.
