Turnkey CB 'Beacon' Found on Craigslist - CB Wizard

Anyone ever hear one of these on the air when they do roadworks in your area? Basically a Talking House AM Transmitter in the 27 MHz range.

That's an interesting radio. I've never heard one on the air (or even heard of it before).

Found some info on it:
