How CB Radio Are You?

CB radio had it's glory days in the early 1980's- well before we had the internet and mobile phones. It was the first way ever that the general public could chat to total strangers and make friends or hurl abuse at each other without meeting.

There maybe only small numbers of people using CB radio now compared with 30 years ago, but there are still a few who have remained faithfull. Are you one of them? With starter equipment now available for under £50, there is also an increasing number of people joining the hobby. Could this be you?
