    My wife is a HAM.
    When Hurricane Irma blew through Florida and Georgia taking all electrical power with it, her HAM got us the straight news from operators around the region.

    I'm an old trucker, and keep a CB in my pickup strictly for use when traveling. It has helped me avoid bad traffic tie ups when I get stupid enough to actually use the Interstates.
    I do not believe a CB would be applicable in SHTF/survival situation, the range is much too limited.

    Wife has mounted in her pickup a CB w/sideband, plus a HAM transceiver.

    Yes they do! My wife does. I need to get her an RCI 2950 set up so she can use side band, split frequencies and CB.

    I know there are people on here playing with Ham I never really played with it always had CBs I do have a General Lee converted to CB that is still capable of Ham frequency just never played with it much. The whole license thing I might understand if a high power base but with handhelds is it really necessary?

    Back in the day you needed a license for CB as well but very few people did and definitely don't anymore.

    My thoughts on any communication outside the norm is good but ultimately they still listen and control all frequencies so in real SHTF they are not as useful as they once were as they can still block them and definitely track them.

    Well, I ordered a Cobra 50 WSXT 40 channel handheld CB with a remote and fixed antenna, a ETEKESS am/fm/sw/mp3 rec player and a Beofang handheld ham tranciever. I'm guessing alot of broadcasters have gone to digital or encrypted transmissions but that's cool. Analog will get some use too.
