And im in Ireland ...if the prop is there then you can get out further with the Antron 99 set up ...but my landlord wont let me put up the antenna so its a pain in the harris going to sit in the car. Plus normal cb is dead here in ireland ...no one uses it anymore, its all mobile phones and emails :whistling: :whistling:

do folk still use them.


They do but its all gone tchie and most people using them now are on the 11mtre bands. Its gone more for the amatuer radio way with no handles as it used to be but call signs. And all coded talk with Q's. The bands are full when there is prop to get out there but not used so much for comms nowadays ....apart from the truckers and the farmers.
