    Pretty much for everything. Haven't seen a bush road or lease road yet that has CB channels listed, just a frequency.

    The few times I've had to head up a winter road to a drill site the customer would usually give me a portable radio or escort me in to the site.

    I thought that it was illegal to use them on land ? But I guess not

    I've never actually seen a CB in real life aside from in a box on a part store shelf.
