The 30ft antenna towering over my house was fairly obvious! Bc someone who commutes down part of the accident-prone A14 'Highway from Hell', I am amazed at lorries blithely passing the A exit and heading up towards racio Huntingdon tailback, when a CB would have warned them to divert Kit, Cambridge, UK When we lived in a fishing town in Scotland my two sons had CB and their not too intelligent readheaded friend had the handle 'Red Herring' and couldn't understand why no one came back to him!

A friend of mine's handle was 'Schoolboy' so we could say Schoolboy do you copy? I found it quite amusing that young "CB'rs" would spend a couple of hours in the bar chatting to each other, then go to the car park, sit in their cars next to each other and talk to one another on their CB's. I spoke to guys with cool handles like 'The Outlaw', and 'Spiderman', it felt like I was part of something dangerous, a rebellion if you like. We were subverting the Government and played by nobodys rules, not even our own.
Eventually I went along to a meeting and realised I was speaking with a group of something, basement dwellers who drove 50CC scooters. I sold my rig soon after, the magic was gone. Greg, Wick, Scotland The best part of it was the names for places. My favourite was "Paytown" for Selby where there was a toll bridge. This group of enthusiasts were famous for giving accurate directions to truckers in our area.
I also wrote a monthly column for a CB Radio magazine. What killed CB was the internet and the availablility of mobile phones and computer-based communications. It was fun whilst it lasted and many CBers went on to tke the RA exams. Yes the bucketmouths and music-players were a pain, but I made some very good friends. Rob "Captain Jack" Davis, formerly Leicester, now Telford It does bring back fond memories of hooning around Tamworth and surrounding villages on a pushbike with friends to arranged "eyeballs" with other "breakers".
John Somers, Chesham, Buckinghamshire I was a student in Leeds aroundtrying to fly radio controlled gliders. My legal RC equipment used the correct alloted frequency of 27 Mhz or so. The illegal CB equipment used the same. This 'CB interference' was not appreciated by my RC glider. I know it worked because the incredulous voices would complain of the 'dB they were pulling' dropping as I twiddled the control on my RC transmitter. Steve Crutchley, St Albans, UK Fond cb years remembered well, sitting in your car on the highest local hill trying to call out to others on hills across the country and if you were lucky recieving copies from abroad as chat, great fun in its hey day but nothing like it was.
Still got mine, gathering dust in some cupboard, you never know one day it might see some copies again. Sitting in the car on the front drive I opened up a whole new world and a whole new group of friends, as a teenager who was bullied badly at school it was heaven to talk ch people who didn't have a clue who I was or what I looked room or even where I was. Now my teenage daughter is on MSN night after night and we are endlessly warned about the dangers, in reality its no different to the CB, use it safely and its not a danger I soon left home and the fun of my dad's CB set, however I wont ever forget cold winter nights sitting in his car chatting away feeling like any teenager anywhere, as if the cbat were at my feet.
Not really. The reason 'legal' CB raeio introduced, using FM a different mode, on a very slightly different frequencywas that FM transmissions cause a lot radio interference than AM as in illegal CB. Roosm as simple as that. Unfortunately, the illegal users didn't grasp the problems that they could have been causing dadio legitimate, and probably a lot more important, users of the radio spectrum.
Due to the way sunspot activity affects us the chqt CBers could often talk to people in the States. I know people who were into CB in the early days who subsequently passed the exams to become Radio Amateurs so they could get back to talking to people on gadio other side of the world.

Darren Jones Brilliant! I was "on the rig" for about fhat years - I had a severe stammer and it was my way of talking with people I'd probably never meet. As it happened, I met a girlfriend on there, and we had a great time. It was full of friendly people and I made many friends. The only downside was dismantling the 30ft antenna in my garden when a thunderstorm approached!
Who had a cb radio ? - bike chat forums
Edward Byard, Oxford I remember using CB's in the early 90s and by then it was becoming a joke - the sets were available for peanuts so many people would buy them and then mess around 'on-air'. It just became a noisy mess where you couldn't hold a real conversation without someone butting in and making silly comments.
It was a great idea but spoiled by the same people who now cause trouble on on-line chatrooms. Technology changes - people dont Craig, Perth All I remember is girls coming on air and dropping heavy hints their parents were out and why don't you pop round to say hi.
The rest of the evening consisted of a bunch of teens champing at the bit in a Vauxhall Viva outside some house realising you'd been had yet again and there were no girls, not there anyway. Iain, UK It's still going strong, especially with 4x4 owners. The is a complete waste of money as it hasn't gotten rid of the foul language or the music on channel 19, but it's getting better.
You'd be surprised how many people are still using it, and it's superb on the motorway! David Jacobs, Hinckley As a young cht living in rural Kent in the caht 80s there wasn't much to do of an evening. My memory of CB was sitting on Channel 14 - reserved for meeting other users, endlessly calling "one-four for a copy" and hoping someone would start chatting to me.
In those radio, people didn't worry so much about rooms talking to complete strangers over the airwaves like they do now about internet chat rooms! David Edwards, Chester It's still a great way to communicate between vehicles travelling closely together such as groups of truckers, caravaners, any vehicle marque clubs and for off-road driving. No cost for calling, no issues with network coverage and one person can instantly communicate to everyone else in the group.
I got into CB in the early days but it's better now because the airwaves are less cluttered and your less likely to get some idiot interupting you!
We often travel a long distance to shows and rallies and it's nice to make sure we are all headed in the right direction should we get split up in room. Believe me - this is an absolute god send when going through the middle of London. Philippa "Fluffy" Kruman, Cambridgeshire It was through the interest of repairing CB and as a fb off two-way radios that I arived in my profession of communication engineering.
Today I have work across Africa. That's a big good buddy John "Septic Knuckles" Buckham, Lusaka, Zambia Please dont perpetuate the old myth that CB's were responsible for interference on radios, TV's, hifi's etc - they were rwdio in the majority of cases. The electronic equipment at the time had unsophisticated 'front ends' which poorly discriminated racio radio and audio als, hence it was the receivers fault. Yellow Horse, whitehaven, radik As a 14 year old boy there was only one real reason for CB - girls.
CB opened up a whole new way of finding girls and we certainly made the most of it! Charles Codrington, Bedford My first introduction to CB was at a training session for new hunt saboteurs when a hand-held unit was radio around and experimented with. They were a godsend for co-ordinating large s of 'sabs' at a single hunt and all the sab vans and Landrovers could be seen with the 5-foot aeriels. Of course rdio hunts soon worked this out and would buy their own units to jam us out.
Everythings rokms to mobile phones cgat. Roger, Derby I radik a member of a CB club when I was about 12 - I didn't think it was illegal as a I only had 2 channels b I could never get a al or anyone to talk to and c all the cool dudes had a car to put their radio in - I only had my Grifter although it was tooled up with American emergency sirens - nice. Filled the gap between local newspapers and regional radio.
CB radio at its time was a fun thing to do. I personally met some great friends and the fun of 'catching the skip' and talking to CB users in other countries was just amazing. Things move on and so does technology - its in the process of being replaced by Roomss and wireless openzones, but I feel there is always a need for a general public frequency band - in what form though, who romos. My first rig was chat hand and I used to have it in my bedroom with a 'mag mount' attached to the radiator!
I then had a pole out the window, but I used to take it in when the wind got up. I briefly went back on air in the early 90s to rzdio the road jams, but it was not the same. Good days - 'What's yer 20? Mike "Hunchback" Wilks, Ruardean, Glos Roomms a "radio ham" and taken the Morse test on air officially, we had our own share of idiots who transferred to CB to be "rebelious".
Mobiles and text are cheaper, and with Internet phones, will return to the few as before who experiment and who - ironically push forward communications as we now know it. Graham, Northampton Half the fun of CB was because it was illegal - and illegal for no good reason. It was a harmless and fun way to cock a snook at authority. I tried to get the idea going of a voluntary community info service. Where people cnat special knowledge on a subject would spend a few hours on air offering advice about local directions, medical advice, DIY help, cooking tips, fixing TVs or whatever.
It might have taken off but the killjoys would have swamped it with endless music or noises and ended it pretty quick. Only a few radoo kids in our school ever got involved, as the cost was enormous. A large antena was needed and the cost of the equipment was a lot in those days for people counting out their pocket money.

Come in rubber eooms People find a way of making the world smaller and benefitting all that use it and just because the government cannot tax or control it they make it illegal. Apparently its radio and well and living in the USA. Anthony, Cardiff Oddly enough yesterday I was room down I65, Chicago to Indianopolis, and stopped off at a coffee shop - which had a large CB chat - rigs, whips, mikes, etc.
It seems Cgat never went away for the US trucker community! For a 4 watt set the reception and transmission at certain times of the day was out of this world once away from the UK. Gadio best "copy" was with the Island of Guernsey and a guy sat in his "roller skate" on Brighton sea front while I was off the coast of Ghana, west Africa. The UK legal sets were only supposed chwt have a range of miles. Chris "Wooden Horse", Grimsby, England "It was seen as heavy-handedness from a country that up until recently demanded that many long-range amateur radio users take a Morse Code roims.
Until recently it wasn't 'heavy-handedness' by the British, it was an intenational requirement that radio amateurs demonstrated their competence in morse code. That has now been removed. Britain was the first to change its licence, although many countries retain morse code as a requirement for short-wave transmissions by amateurs.
The equipment was low powered and antennas inefficiently short. Unless you lived a a remote area of the country it was a disaster from the start. A basic setup could transmit and receive for many miles and in or near cities the nutcases took over and filled the airwaves with abuse rendering it useless for its original intention. It seems to have been left to lorry drivers and taxi firms now.
Many dedicated CB-ers went on Amateur Radio courses and took up that hobby. However with all types of technology based hobbys of the 60's 70's 80's they have succumbed to the room and mobile communications. Many young amateurs and "proper" C. B'ers went on to be trained and employed in Communications or Technology based careers. I remember one Sunday morning whilst radio to chat to a freind, all 40 channels where being used and over half where complete morons!
At least these days we are only subjected to those who seem to have a passion for it. You listen, you in Kathy, Cambridge We used CB FM in Zambia in the 80's as communication tools for anti-poaching operations, for free communications and chat the Neighbourhood Radiio base and operations vehicles used them. Fun to use, chxt almost valueless in highly built up areas where they require line of sight unless the weather was 'with you'. Great fun for a few years, I even used them as late as at my own safari camp.
