I fell in love with CB way back in the 60's.
Would go over to my friends house who's dad was a truck driver.
Listening to the party line and skip brought visions of far away places.
In the 70's family moved to Chicago for work.
CB in that city was beyond congested and noisy. Just couldn't enjoy it at all.
Besides , girls had now become more important. LoL
80's , back to Ohio. Back in the country life ever since.
I've had a few Cobras and Unidens over the years.
A DX 959 that pooped out and a very old Ranger 2950.
Looking for a better SSB radio.
High powered is not my thing. Always been happy with stock power and a power mic.
Looking to put up my first tower, just 40-60 ft.
Been reading a lil.
Maybe a Shooting Star or Comet beam.
Skip is now my interest.
My handle comes from a past in high voltage work,and a lil dabbling in odd coils. Odan coils.
Thanks for letting this oll fart on this interesting site.
Hope to learn much more.
