    Re: Remembering CB Radio

    I was surprized to stop by and see the great response to this thread! Great!

    In the 70's my handle was "Treasure Hunter" (no kidding). I lived at that time in the Grand Haven, Michigan. Prior to that I lived in Spring Lake, Michigan, and used a Heath Kit walkie talkie to bug the big base stations in my area with "Break! Break!"

    Back in 1960 (age 12) while out on Petty's Bayou (fishing in my ice shanty) I contacted a kid who lived some 6 miles away. That was using my 100 MW walkie!

    Ha, great old memories.

    Yeah, I think Nefertiri's handle was Pink Sphinx. "Breaker 19 this is the Pink Sphinx stopping fr 10-66 at a choke-n-puke." HAHAHA

    Thortech was a company that sold devices to locate treasures, this supposedly used CB radios to locate treasures, I think it is difficult because of the high frequency of the radios, I do not believe that the waves penetrate the earth ...

    HA! My friends were "Silver Eagle", "War Eagle"; I was "Hound-Dog"... I-81 in the Shenandoah Valley was LOADED with CB Chatter from the Big Rigs, watching out for da "SMOKIES". Fights at the truck stops were common...
