There are legal considerations, but putting those aside, speed will be
lacking because of the typical narrow bandwidth available on a CB radio,
300-1200 bps is typical on HF radio via amateur radio.  The other problem
is the communication is simplex, unless you have a receiver & transmitter
running together at both ends with enough separation so they don't
interfere with each other.
