I recently took a long trip to Kentucky along IL 55 and Ind 65. The truck traffic was intense. If you had a CB radio, without a doubt you were alerted to all staionary speedtraps and most moving ones. Granted, it is a little hard to take all the tiime, but on several occasions the traffic information was useful ie. roadwork and accidents ahead with directions for an alternate route. Magnetic mount antennas placed in the center of your roof provide good reception and are easily stored when the trip is through. Matching the antenna to the radio is almost a non-issue when it comes to reception.
