You remember a lot of the people I knew then, a couple of them friends. It's strange to think how many people were on the CB compared to what you hear now if you turn one on.
I repaired CBs in the Irvine - Kilwinning - Saltcoats - Ardrosan and Cumnock area for a few years. I made a lot of good friends on it over the years, some I still keep in touch with. I don't live in Irvine now but I hear there's still a few people on the air there? It would be nice to think that one day people would use radio again, it has a more personal touch than the PC being that your talking to locals most of the time. Ok there were the numpties yes but you get that anywhere, but it was free to use and no virus checker needed!
I still have an old audioline home base rig next to my PC here. Not that there's much traffic on it nowadays but I still turn it on now and again for a listen.
It would be nice to hear from any old Irvine - Ardrossan - Saltcoats - Kilwinning and Cumnock Cbers again if any of you read this. Get your box out of the loft and turn it on!
Forgot about this thread. Mantis is your name Kevin. I remember a John Screwdriver from down Mauchline way, think he changed his handle to Sky1.
A few from the Garnock valley, dougie Golden Bear, wee Linda Shadow, tricia carribean Queen, wullie Rambo, Ewan Night Hawk, Gordon Gopher (still on), grant Bananaman, Tony Spark Plug, Janet Twinkletoes to name but a few.
Come to think of it Mantronix was Kevin ::):
Simon the Mariner.
Should maybe organise an HG CB night or weekend breakathon type thing. The rigs been gathering dust for the last few months while I rebuild the engine in the truck. Snapped the crankshaft and just haven't had the time to refit the rebuilt engine
