    Also CB has got me thinking, does it get much use, is CB making a revival?
    What's the view?

    Not sure about making a revival but there seems to be plenty new models about.
    Use to have one years ago as a kid chatting to mates but that's as far as I took it. Even remember the cb , it was an Amstrad 901 with the fairy lights on the front.
    Could come in useful at meets I suppose.

    CB still quite popular around Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey. I regularly join in on radio club's nets. Solent Radio Group have one every afternoon and evening. A dozen or so regulars. The Charlie Tango radio group do weekly nets and I've manged to speak to people dozens and dozens of miles away. The old FM frequency is popular and what I mainly stick to but if you get a rig that has the side bands, you can talk to people hundreds of miles away. Great as you say for convoys etc. We went on a roadtrip with some friends and I lent them an old set up, was great fun!

    Donít do a lot of talking on mine but hear a fair bit, and hear a lot with the skip.

    I went for the Cobra 29LX EU as it's a great rig and you can change the colours too. It's slightly bigger than a standard DIN size so wherever you decide to stick it in (behave!) will need a little fettling.
    The President Grant 2 is a great rig, all singing and dancing. I prefer the old style rigs.

    Fitted these today, new led daytime running lamps with led fog lights in the centre. A tenner from eBay including postage! The old fog lights had a bulb gone and when I took the light out to change it, it fell apart with rust. These are plastic so shouldnít have that problem. A bit of fettling needed to make them fit but they look good for today!
