Just got done doing this drive on the 2nd and the Alabama state troopers were out IN FORCE in every construction zone running I/O Ka band. Saw several people getting pulled over but had no problem picking it up with the Pro 78 and the CB was a huge plus.
Not sure if you've done the road trip yet but they set the speed limit on I-20 from the state line to Talladega at 55! Something about an accident or something is what I caught on the CB for the drop from 70 down to 55 and the troopers were enforcing it!
Actually here is the news link for the speed drop:
