Hi Guys,
This is my first real post to the forum, I just wanted to share my CB history with you all. 😊
It all started at Christmas 1982 when my parents gotten hold of a Binatone Route 66 and a half wave dipole. I can still remember switching the radio on for the first time and hearing all of the difference voices. At the time I lived in south west Birmingham and can remember Beakers such as Slice Alice, Daddy Long Legs, Drumbeat and Thuderbird1.

Boxing Day Monday 1982 was special time as the BBC had shown the film Convoy and I can remember getting up the next morning jumping on channel 19 and shouting out “19 for a trucker” as was only 10 minutes from the M5, but never got a response.
Any Breakers from south west Brum (Rubery, Frankey or Rednal) would have remembered the CB shop called Square Wheels and the owner Frank, I can remember spending a lot of time in there and wanting a 934 mhz rig and Yagi.
During the 80’s and early 90’s I had many radios including a Communicator IN-440DX, Audioline, Colt 555 and Hygain 5.

In 2000 I move out of the UK and in 2006 I gained my Ham ticket but have not been all that active.
So I am returning back to 27 MHz after almost 20 years and maybe if the skip is correct will make the trip back to blighty.

Kind regards.

Steve

Hi Steve, nice to meet you buddy! Your post is very similar to what I used to be like. Always calling out on channel 19 for a copy to the truckers 😊 I took a good 10 years off being on channel, but now I’m back and really hope to speak with friends on the Charlie Tango DX group. Best regards, Ben 163-CT-255
