Hello gang.. I just joined the site and look forward to learning about the hobby of CBing. I have recently retired and have decided that I want to occupy some free time with building a home base station. Nothing fancy but I certainly want to learn how to optimize the potential of my setup and to be safe. I know little of nothing about CBs and will likely remain silent until I can speak intelligently about what I am trying to do. Thanks in advance ... Tony

Today as we speak I have purchased a Johnson Messenger 250 ( with mic) and no antenna. Gonna take baby steps.. :)

Welcome to the show FIG...Hope you have some deep-pockets...Getting into the CB hobby can get pricey...

Most who have been in the hobby for any length of time will tell ya, "CB" does not stand for "Citizen Band" like some want you to believe...But rather "Constantly Buying"...

Get that base up and running, and give me a shout on channel 28 sometime...( of course you may need to borrow a different radio to shout at me, since I think that Johnson only has 23 channels)
