    Isn't the same said for big trucks? If so, truckers got some issues 4-10?

    Mine did back in 1984,my mother heard everything I said over the tv. New electronics don't really have a problem till your blasting 600 or it seems. I wait until the one neighbor with old speakers leaves for work before I kick up the power. Don't need it for local talk with an antron 50feet up at the base.

    Many today don't use Amps or feel a need, but some still do especially DX talkers, I have had CB since the days of all the chatter, and the movie Bandit brought out the 23 channel clubs, and all the Trash talk and coffee clutch talkers, my buddy then lived on a mountain and had 3000 watt amp. Me I had a simple 5 watt drug store CB,But like any Hobby Some people get carried away on the chatter and the Amp power .I hear some not many today running max power, How ever in the defense of Power Amps, I agree with truckers that may be in the wilderness and a emergencies comes up that you have to reach out farther than a stock radio will reach, I lived in Norther Maine and I assure you that a AMP is needed in that area as well as places like Wyoming and Nevada, where it may be 200 miles to get help.
    But I see no need for some of these A Holes that live in town blasting away to show they can. I hear DX every night and some as far as Florida and Texas here in Ohio When i was in Maine in the days of a cheap radio i would go down by the water and listen to California and sound like next door but they cant hear me, But I am Old 30 year retired Navy and Flew patrol in the day with one hell of a radio and would find Channel 19 freq at 20,000 feet, But just listen didn't key my mike,lol
