XM4252817

we're 10-8 & 10-10 on the side of this one....


It was Christmas 1976 and my father bought 2 CB's, one for his car and the other as a base station for our home that was hooked up in my bedroom. We had a Shakespeare 'Big Stick' CB antenna on the roof wired with RG-8. I had a 12 Volt power supply from Radio Shack to power the home base.

I just recently came across a photo of me, a very happy kid, with his CB just out of the box on Christmas morning ! I was the envy of all of my friends at school when I told them I got 2 CB's and an 18 foot antenna for Christmas ... a was 10 years old at the time.

I loved the CB .... talked for hours to people all over. From our home in Clarkson, Mississauga it had a good range... into Lorne Park & Park Royal.

KZW8327 - 1978. I also miss those days. A Hygain Hyrange II 23 channel into a homemade quarterwave base antenna using RG-8. My parents gave it to me for Christmas. That pretty much was my introduction into radio and a couple of years later migrated into Amateur Radio.

Mine was KOD something (It was my mom's because I was too young). I still have it tucked away somewhere in the attic, along with the original Lafayette Comstat 25 that I got for Christmas in the 1960s! Funny thing is that I can still remember all the call signs of the guys in the neighborhood that I used to chat with until the wee hours of the morning. There where so many stations on the air in my Bronx neighborhood back then, that I could hit about 20 of them in a 15 block radius with just a piece of wire out my window!
