Can't necessarily play internet whilst driving a truck or ploughing a field. I've just done a bit of research and there seems to be a resurgence of use. Certainly plenty of outlets selling the equipment.
I drove a 22wheeler in the states before i was married, the CB over there is a must (for keeping the bears off your ass & weight check stations) Very handy in the UK & continent as well, when I retired in2005 most truckers had a CB.
I use a Kenwood KSC 31 with 16 channels which needs a licence and another called a Vortex Standard. Very popular amongst the neighbourhood crime watch and farming fraternity here with direct contact to all of the emergency services. In use daily. Call sign Sierra 41
