Dug these out from the loft, not a lot of people using them these days, to test had to put one in the car and one in the van and 'talk to myself', many other's packing CBs this weekend?



Looks good in the pigeon hole:

Never having had a CB before (Still dont), if i am hunting on ebay what should i be looking out for and how much should i expect to pay?
something with 40 channels, that hasn't been fr**ed about with, a simple magmount with antenna, expect to pay £20-£30 for a working second hand unit and maybe another £15 for an antenna:

As we use a windscreen mounted ariel for the radio instead of original one, is there a CB ariel that can be screwed into original ariel mounting (Can you tell i know bugger all about ariels and CBs?)
in a word no! you need a completely different aerial, you could bodge it to your exisitng radio but don't expect it to work more than a few feet away, CBs operate on 27MHz, your FM radio 88-108MHz...

Ahem! I:

I've got a magnetic mount CB aerial still for sale if anyone is interested and I can bring it along to Beaulieu.

It came with my CB set, but I now have an integrated one so no longer need it. As good as new!!

Joker had expressed an interest initially but Vanwest was postponed, so I have PM'd him to see if he still wants it, but if he doesn't or doesn't get back to me before tomorrow, then it's still for sale!

dumb question time, ive just bought a cb.....wife asked why:*, but there you go, however i havent got an antenna, the guy i bought it off says that i have to tune the aerial into the cb.....no idea what that means, i just thought you could buy a straight forward aerial off flea bay for instance, plug it in and youre away.....im obviously missing the point somehow and it shows i know very little about cb's:confused:, any advice please..
