I never found anything wrong with the CB radio which used to be the 11 meter 
ham band prior to 1958 I believe,   just the IDIOTS that began to use them 
I expect many hams had a CB radio first and then discovered a better way 
like I did.  I had my first CB in 1967 and got my ham tickets in 1974.  I 
have never been sorry that I made the upgrade!  On the highway I sometimes 
tune my Ts 2000 to 27.185 AM and listen to the truckers.  No, my rig will 
not transmit on that band!
