    I know more LE '10 Codes' than CB '10 Codes'.

    I disconnected my CB anyway.
    99% Trash on there.
    And with the Cascadia I drive I need to get a separate/external Antenna, and that's not worth it to me.

    It seems like most drivers don't even know how to key-up anymore.

    Used to be able to get on and ask about the parking situation at the only truck stop up ahead, maybe 2 miles, and someone would answer and tell me if it's jammed or if there's a few spots left, or if its wide open. Now I rarely even bother trying to get an answer. Same thing for bear reports and scale house reports.
