Yep. If you're as old as I am (some of you are MUCH older - haha), then you remember CB radio, especially in the 1970's. Citizen's Band of Friends to be precise (CBF). Anyway, with all the lingo and jargon that was used up to and including the now cult movie classic "Convoy" that made it so popular, I felt the need to regress into my childhood a bit. Picked up this little CB; actually having it delivered. Not soon, couple weeks, but hey hopefully it's worth it.

The last time I remember CB radio the airways were jammed with 12 year old kids taking the i*** and interupting talk and playing tapes all over you..It was a total waste of time..I hope it's better for you..

Unless there is an 'app' that makes doing that kind of thing easier, I think this dude is safe :)

I was working for a major retail chain in the 70's and early 80's when the craze hit. For some reason the company decided to sell them in the Sp. Goods Dept (which I was a dept. manager of in one of their stores) since the auto store was leased to Crown Auto who also sold them. Everyone wanted one, but didn't have a clue how to use it properly.

The movie that really started it all was Smokey and the Bandit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6hGdPkn8Ow Kris Kristofferson followed later in Convoy if my memory serves me right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sd5ZLJWQmss

I still have a scanner next to me here. Back in the day I had a base unit with a 5,000 watt 10 meter amplifier. Talked around the world late at night.
