CB radio ?

Hi,
I wonder if there would be any problems with CB radio on the Morocco border? like for example in Tunisia or Libya sometimes.

Piotr

No, they don't look for CB Radio, but is a good idea to hide it when you live the car for a long time in parking

Until a couple of years ago, the police at the border - and only at the border - confiscated any CB radios they could find, so it was a good ideia to hide them and mount them after the border. A mate of mine had his CB confiscated in the border of Ceuta in 2003/2004. Dont know if the situation has changed since then.
