    Yeah, that's right Chris. Until 1981 CB radio wasn't legal in the UK but 27 MHz AM CB had been in use in the States for many years. So people started using the AM CB radios (or rigs) illegally. Then in 1981 the UK was given 40 FM channels on 27MHz. Now, I think AM and FM is legal here, and more than 40 channels.
    I was on AM back then as a nipper and even had a rig on my moped for a while lol. My CB handle was Joe Cool...as corny as it sounds. My elder brother made up the name.
    I've been on more recently and had a rig in the car for a while. It's pretty quiet on there now. It would be great if a few of us got them. I had one in the car when we did the Burt Reynolds M25 memorial run last year and it was a brilliant laugh. Everybody had one...even the Snowman's truck. I adopted the handle Silver Tongued Devil lol

    it is pretty quiet on there now but on long journeys its great to talk to the lorries they often tell you when there is a problem on the road. i have an old homebase at home and a modern rig in the car. the modern ones are so small they fit anywhere!

    OK, cool. I will try to keep mine in the car to keep my "ears on" haha.Yeah, I did hear that many truckers use them. Apparently some farmers have them in their tractors to chat to each other while they are ploughing fields lol
