We've had a couple of downturns in the CB hobby in the last 20 years but the lackluster cycles and new technology for the new generation really seems to be putting the nail in the coffin. The two main clubs in my state shut down and the last CB break was 9 years ago I think. I live in a county of 200,000 people and there isn't a single other CB hobbyist in the entire county, at least no one that I've heard in the last 5 years. In the area 50 miles north of me there are 2.75 million people and only 6-7 regulars who hang out on 38LSB, but it seems like someone in that group is always fighting or playing music on the radio. 80 miles south of me there are 3.75 million people and maybe 20-30 regulars of which I hear 7-8 when I drive through there. I know the hobby isn't dead, but without DX, radio is certainly dead in my area. I've also noticed that there are hardly any CB's on craigslist or at garage sales like there used to be. All the older stuff has already changed hands or hit the dump I think. In the early 2000's I was making off like a bandit with piles of stuff every weekend, but I haven't seen anything of interest on craigslist in a couple of years. Just wondering if anyone else is starting to see these trends.
