    Breaker 9-1 good buddy!!!

    Ha

    The misspent Middle age!!. Kris Kristofferson eat your heart out!!.

    Ye-Ha. the R-v came with one and it still works too. :RollEyes: though the last time it was used was to convoy thorough France with 8 others a few years back!! I am not even sure we where legal!!!.:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Still it was a lot of laughs. Superceeded by the mobile phone I'm Afraid!!.

    Never mind it's all good fun.

    Now IF I can get my hands on a second hand HANDHELD on the same frequency Management could tell me how far I was off the pitch marker, and that would avoid me driving it into the grass everytime!! mmmmmmm?:thumb:

    10-4 and gone!!!

    Was not legal then and not now either. Sideband radios are for Radio hams, if they have an exemption certificate but only for use on 10mtrs. 10-9 is repeat message by the way.

    We wouldn't be withoout it on the motorways - great warnings of hold-ups - or when in convoy. There are still some towns where you con get directions if the satnav fails you!

    Do you still have 40 odd channels to choose from? Its a long time since I heard "One Nine for a Copy"

    Maybe we should have a Funster channel to listen out on:Smile:

    Have a Midland 40ch with EU and UK frequencies , came with the RV, but to be frank, I've seldom heard anyone on it :Sad: So I bought a hand held 40 ch Midland which comes in useful for backing up.. or keeping in touch with 'base camp' .. shame that there aren't more people using CB.. it used to be great fun.. Chaz plays with it more than me.. :Laughing:

    Hi Jim,

    I must admit to being a little disappointed with the lack of people on there...

    We could always have a channel dedicated to Rubber Roofs.:Wink:
