$1.00, such a deal! You can't go wrong at that price, and it just might work in an area where a cell might not. 27 Mhz (or 11 meters) with 4 watts output and a properly-matched antenna might surprise you as to how far it will reach under certain propogation conditions. The next thing you know, you'll probably be talking with a truckdriver in South Carolina!
I would still search high and low for a 3-watt bagphone at garage sales. Analog or not, those units have 5 times the output over a handheld, and that might well make a difference. I've learned that some cell phone employees are quietly buying up the 3-watt phones for use in fringe areas.
Hope your CB works well for you.
