Boy.. It sounds like the CB truck stop channel? Meanwhile ole channel 19 is dead, dead?. Without the code requirement and even at 5 wpm it is a weekend deal for many? No months and months of dedication and experience to get code proficiency up? Will it continue to just be -Big CB- or will they actually be able to overcome it or will it overcome them. They had dedicated observers in CB also? When it got to be too big a struggle they just gave up on CB and call it ''Self Regulated''? Ham radio is becoming more as ''Just a Hobby'' instead of the Amateuer Radio Service where we try to gain proficiency to be ready if needed..
