    Do you currently have a CB radio?
    in you vehicle, how about a portable one?
    If so - do you use it often, sparingly - maybe you just listen?

    Did you used to have one back during the CB craze of the middle '70's.

    and what is/was you handle??

    I well remember the CB radio craze of the 1970s. I never had one even back then, though several friends did. I think I was too busy listening to my 8-track tapes!

    I still have the equipment, but is not hooked up. Got to be that all on CB around here were nutt jobs. My grandpa could regularly talk to England from Ga. He Had a 1500 watt amp and 48 DB gain directional beams. Of course it was skip, but you got to have the juice to regularly talk that kind of skip.

    I bought a CB a couple of years ago with my tax refund.
    Dont use it too often - I do live one mile North of I-90 - so
    I could get a lot of truckers.

    May use it more when I travel to SC this fall - wow thats only about 18 weeks

    Your grandpa's rig sounds like a ham radio. Is that what you have?

    Do you still use it? That's what my granddad's radio was. I still have it, but have not talked on it in years. I am sure you know how to make it scream like an eagle when you key it?

    My handle was Cactus Jack, but I was in some kind of competition with a couple of truckers that used it.
