We had a Chrysler with factory one built in ... snazzy option.

Of course back then, CB's were only 23 channels, not 40.  :)

My dad got me a CB radio on one of my birthdays back in the mid-sixties. My handle was, "The Witchdoctor". I enjoyed the "skip" conditions which enabled you could talk to people around the country unfettered, however, I remember when CB jockeys had to get an FCC license to operate them. IIRC, I remember they charged you about $5.00 to get the license. Ah, such memories.

My dad had a CB for many years and he wasn't a trucker. But he liked jawing with truck drivers when he was on the 6-hour road trip to his favorite fishing lake.

KSE1174, Mystery Lady here, got yer ears on? Fun when "skip" was in, signals bouncing off the ionosphere in certain conditions, rather than the usual line-of-sight limit...we could talk to people all over the world! Exchanging QSO (conversation) postcards to post on the wall. I still remember a lot of the nomenclature, and that was around 1974! My brother "The Navaho Kid" and I got way into the geek stuff, as I seem to recall, the cables worked best when in three-foot increments... Bigger mast! More guy wires! More power! I'll be 10-10 on the side! 3's and 8's to you!
