Is CB radio still in use where you live? In the USA, there was a craze for it about 40 or so years ago. Our CB band is actually on the upper end of the HF band (26-27 MHz), which was great for making radios affordable in the 1970s, and didn't always require line of sight. Cell phones just killed the dickens out of it, though. People would have them in their cars to call for help, but a cell phone is much easier for that (plus cars don't break down like they used to back then).

The trucking industry still uses it, a lot. But that's it. Unless you want to talk to truckers, there's no point in it anymore.
