I haven't ever `really used' a scanner to listen to CB since around the pre 2004 days. And even then I would rather use an actual CB radio instead of a scanner. Nowdays, if I succumb to the urge to listen, or something comes up where I might have some sort of a `need?' to listen, I will either use my RS TRC-232, Midland 75-822, or Browning Baron rather than a scanner. (Who knows if one might actually end up needing to talk?) The only `problem' I might run across is that only the Browning is capable of SSB. I still haven't been able to find a HH that does SSB and probably won't. Using a scanner to listen to CB kinda reminds me of doing a biological function into the wind.
