Did you ever wonder what people used before handphones? Some of them used to use CBRadios or Citizen’s Band radio. These radios are a relatively short range radio that is often used in the construction or transportation industry. Truckers previously used them as a method of communication between their fellow truckers to warn them of speed traips or police road blocks ahead. They still use them today as they are free unlike a handphone which incurs a charge each time a call is made. So while the age of the handphones may have arrived, there is still a place for alternative forms of communication such as CB Radios.
