If your CB is quiet during the daytime, you've done something wrong, or you live in a strange place. I'm hearing Oklahoma all day long, because the skip is in on the 11m band due to the sunspot cycle which renders the troposphere opaque to 11m radio during the day (while the solar radiation is modifying the troposphere), meaning that 11m signals bounce all over. Renders the CB pretty much useful only on the trail for short distances with squelch well up, even there occasionally some motormouth from Alabama will break in.

2 meter FM amateur radio is where the hobby is going. FM sounds better than AM and 2M doesn't skip. Getting a ham license nowadays is easy peasy, I did study for a little bit using one of the free online web sites that does "flashcards", but not a *lot*, and only missed one question on the test -- and no morse code test nowadays, folks.
