I'm going to ask a really basic newbie question but how much mobile radio traffic can I expect? A buddy and I recently got our licenses and hand helds for hunting safety - more distance and reliability than the GMSR's. I'm thinking about putting a mobile in my truck primarily for road and weather conditions when traveling. I've always felt there should be communication between automobiles and when the CB thing first started I thought it was great but soon it got to the point I couldn't stand listening to it. Are there enough people on the road using HAM bands to make a mobile installation worthwhile for my purposes? I live on the Texas coast and travel to Florida, Arkansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Idaho - that sort of thing - that is a lot of fairly rural country.
