    Thumbs up The Citizens Band & Radio Hams

    Do you guys in the US still use Citizens Band Radio? It was very popular here in Ireland in the 1970s, but only truckers use it now.

    Tim & i used to have one. He is really into them, We used them if we were going a long way on the highways. We would ask the truckers up a head what the roads were like. It came in handy then it got stolen.

    I used to be a cb addict, then I got a computer. People here still use them, but I don't think they are nearly as popular as they were back in the 70s.

    This has nothing to do with the CB's But i just wanted to tell Capt Buzzard that my mom's fiancee is from Ireland. Co Clare. i believe it is. He wants my Fiancee & i to go there with him and my mom. He brings me pictures all the time from there and they are so beautiful. He says it rains there a lot. All his family is there. He lives in Illinois. He moved there 13 years ago.

    Our Land, AIr & sEA Scanner Died about 2 years ago...we had it for about 10 years though. Illegal, you could hear cell phone conversations, pilots flying over the house and other interesting conversations we should have never been able to hear, what a fun scanner that was...the neighbors frequency for televison aired on the scanner too? You could hear every conversation imagineable, from gay lovers to couples fighting...cheating husbands and people committing suicide? I believe i could find one, they are expensive....

    Back in the mid to late 70's I loved it. It went downhill quickly after that. I'm now an amateur radio freak.

    One of these days I'll get a photo of my computer desk - and you can see my radio setup.
