Somebody could put your rig together, again, for you, Tanzi. It's early days, yet, so there's plenty of time. Get the stuff down and see if you can manage to get it all together, again, yourself. At least, then it'll be down and available for anybody else to assemble it for you. You might surprise yourself.

We will do it, one day, RD!

She's coming back around, old HMS CBRadio and we're all gonna love Her when she comes!

Thank God, I'll be able to get off the Internet for longer periods during my day - allelujah! The Internet has its uses, but Gaaaawd, it's so boring, otherwise.

Ok, so what are you guys going to talk about on your CB, that you cant do on here, besides do spelling mistakes or bad grammar :-) I remember having an intercom system in work and picking up "Noddy" from Toytown who lived nearby.

Hi, ZipperClub...

What we will talk about will be little different from the things we used to talk about on 40 occupied FM channels, 12-24 hours a day, starting around 1982 - every legal, decent and morally correct subject. Nobody needs to be able to type to do it, or think about their spelling, syntax or grammar; they'll just key up and speak, then unkey and listen.

One knob turns the machine on, another finds a person to talk to, on 14 or 19. Another knob spins and they arrive at the agreed to channel. Then, the key on the microphone goes in and the person speaks. Then, they let go and hear what the other says. No crossed conversations and no interruptions.

I recall conversational topics which included: astronomy, astrology, the paranormal, politics, finances, TV, films, photography, music, actors, actresses, sports of all kinds, furniture, curtains, house building, house buying, car buying and maintenance, motor cycles and accessories and banking. I used to play chess on CB, sometimes against more than 2 people at a time.

Whatever two people can talk about in the street, they can talk about on a CB Radio. On some channels, often, there would be a network (10 to 20 people, and sometimes more) people on the same channel, having an on-channel quiz - seriously.

Among the people in my old CB log, from back-in-the-day, were university and school students, solicitors, barristers, consultant surgeons, nurses, soldiers, RAF technicians, police officers, HAM radio users, security officers in nearby premises, teachers going to or from school, university lecturers and researchers, trucks/van/other drivers during their job/s, especially big-wheelers parked up and taxi drivers parked up.

I made and met 44 local new friends out of the log entries numbering over 441. There was always somebody to talk to, at any time of the day or night, back then.

It was a pleasantly mixed bag. It will be, again.

(ZipperClub? Is that connected to surgery in some way? I used to have an uncle who was the President of the Zipper Club and I was just wondering.)

Hello?

Uggla...what rig are you going for?

By the way - AM/SSB is now legal, for CB use, without a license and with any aerial you can legally put on your house.

Hi, CB Folks...

FIRST TIME ON SIDEBAND AND I GOT 38 MILES INTO MACCLESFIELD, ON JUST A BEDROOM (7 FEET FIRESTIK) AERIAL! IMAGINE WHAT YOU GUYS ARE GONNA BE DOING ON EXTERNAL AERIALS!

Whoa, yeah! That's breathed a fresh breath of excitement into this guy's time on the radio!
