    Re: Remembering CB Radio

    Hey that base in the pic looks like a Cobra 142 gtl. I used to be big in CB radio and still have a couple sitting around including some early ones with just letters as channels.
    I used to buy and sell for many yrs and owned alot of different radios, mics, linears and so forth.
    I was given permission several times to Metal Detect on some very nice old homesites from making friends on the radio.

    I still have mine mounted in my van, but it has been awhile since I have used it. I still use it on trips or when in a strange place, now in conjuction with my GPS.GPS is great, but truckers still know the best routes. rockhound

    Re: Remembering CB Radio

    If I remember right , mine used to be KBIA 5091. But where I was living, none of us ever used our
    call numbers. Just our 'Handle'. Mine was 'Whittler' because of my hobby of woodcarving.
    This was nearly all during the 70's. When I moved back down to this area in the early 80's, it was
    so crowded I quit using it. Up North you could get on almost anytime you wanted. Even the Trucker's
    channel was seldom used. Lots of times at night, you could scan from one end to the other and never
    hear anyone or maybe on one or two channels.
    The guys I worked with and I would yak on it on the way home from work and sometimes on week-ends.

    Re: Remembering CB Radio

    When i was a kid about 14, late 70's, I remember buying a set of 3-element beams. I mounted them way up on the chimney of our house. I had to get up on the roof and swing the beams manually depending on which direction I wanted to talk. Was a lot of fun, and as a kid w/a 4 watt radio I could talk for miles and miles!
    We even built and designed our own base station antennas, couple dads got involved too, it was fun at the time and I still think about putting up an antenna to get my boy interested. But I can't yank him away from xbox or Wii....

    Forgot my call letters but my handle was Smoke-eater.
    I still toss in my CB in my truck when I am making a long trip especially out west.
    Out in Wyoming there are places where radio stations are rare. Always fun to chat with the truckers for police sightings and debris on the hwy...ect.

    Re: Remembering CB Radio

    When growing up in the 70's all my family had CBs, and the houses had base stations. I had a CB in my Jeep for year until I finally sold it. I don't remember my dad's handle, but I remember his call sign. KAJU 7595. Back in the old days when you had to have a license to operate, and were required to use your call sign. Oh, those were good times.

    LOL, I remember a buddy and mine talking to this one gal on the CB, and she sounded hot. We agreed to meet at some store. When we pulled in to the parking lot and SAW her, we pulled out fast! Turned off the CB and laughed our butts off for the next half hour.

    Re: Remembering CB Radio

    My family, except for me, has their short wave operator radios and licenses. Should we have a big disaster or shtf event, they will be the only means to communicate. No internet or cell phones will help; just ask the Egyptians.
