CB anymore?

Hi all, Back in the day we used to enjoy listening and conversing with the trucker community on long road trips. At that time we had a Cobra 29 XLR hung above in the custom van but have long ago moved on to normal vehicles. We are headed to Florida from Iowa this week and in hopes of recreating the CB fun bought a used hand held Cobra CB so far I haven't got it to produce on it's own and am considering stopping at a Loves and getting it checked out. As I see it the bayonet rubber ducky antenna is pry useless. I tried to raise a radio check right next to several rigs the other day and nothing. I figure I will need to put a magnetic antenna on the car roof and get a adaptor from bayonet to screw. But here's my real concern, are you truckers still using CB band for OTR communication? I see there is a new player using cell phones with CB apps, is that a popular thing now? I downloaded CB Radio Chat from Midland, it appears to be functional but no signs of trucker life from it that I can see. It appears to be a early release in Europe mostly. So are you guys still ratchet jawing on CB or not (sorry couldn't help it!)
