CB on the air again....

Post by Ant »

I've just lashed my CB antenna up, it's above the roof, it's flipping massive.

Let's get some Beds/Bucks/Herts CB going.

Who's up for a play about?
Shack? Shack is a poorly built building in a third world country, which is on the brink of collapse. I'm not calling mine a shack...

Only one so far. I made contact with CT3444 who's a local.

On 27.555 usb I was able to hear quite a bit, but no actual contacts made.

27.305 USB I think...there is an active set of breakers on there in the Herts/Beds areas...I believe mornings and around 4 in the afternoon, Fred in the shed is mentioning them many times in his videos, check them out on Youtube. I have broke in a few times and said hello, friendly bunch.

They are right in your neck of the woods as well, worth palling up with.
A respect all radio users attitude, then the hobby will endure.
