THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO OUR PAST GOOD TIMES & FRIENDS
We ventured out to see how far we could talk, meet people at coffee breaks, talk skip, business, make new friends, or just to be sociable were just a few of the many things we did. Wouldn't it be great to go back and do it again?
Now, we’re venturing out again to find those who either are still on or have long left CB, who were a part of all of us back then. This site is more or less like a reunion where we can do this.
In our younger years, we had the luxury of coming home after school and turn the rig on. Not only that but to watch TV at the same time.
I remember all the nights when G2 & I would key up at the same time and bust out laughing watching the same TV show. No one knew why unless we told them to put on Ch.11.
The recordings on our site, were by accident through conversation. Neither Pat or I knew each other had made recordings back then. It was only recently that we both discovered history in the making when we just happened to be talking about something on the phone which then finally came out of both of us. When we discovered this, we were very much surprised! Naturally, we decided to put them on the site. I wish we had more.
Some may have taken it for granted but not every country had CB. From what I heard, the people in Russia had to sneak on. There weren’t many. If they did sneak on, it was probably because they built their own radios or smuggled one in. If they did talk, it couldn’t talk for long. Certain freq’s were monitored. If you talked skip to Russia, that as something great! I only had one person in my life, tell me that someone had just spoken to Russia on another channel. Whether that was true or not, I don’t know. I didn’t witness it.
When I first got on CB back in ’63, it was with a cheap pair of Walkie T’s – Fanon Adventurer. A woman, Pat from W. Paterson (KOD-0297) was the first one I heard. By the time I got a decent rig, she went off.
We would like to give many thanks to those who have helped out, added to, and supported our site. *Many thanks again to Chick-a-Dee and Chick-a-Dee’s mom (Hummingbird) who left us a whole photo album which came into view just a few years ago. This was a great attribute to our site.
