Is the CRB you are referring to the old Communications Research Bureau that used to publish frequency sheets (very accurate, by the way) back in the 1960's? They were located on Long Island and went on to publishing frequency books and other scanner-related publications. I haven't seen or heard about them in years.
Yep, I used to have the SHEET for the Wash. D.C. area when I lived there many years ago. Very accurate and up-to-date info, One sheet had vhf-low and high band and covered everything. How times have changed!
I would love to know if they're still around myself. I never wrote for a Florida monitor number when I moved in 1992
I'm relocating to Tennessee in 2007 and would like a TN monitor number.
Monitor # = KNY2XB
Sidebanders Service Bureau # = SSB-976
AM Unit # = Unit 201-Kilo
I used to read the old CB Magazine. I asked Tom Kneitel / Tomcat about the KW SSB ID numbers. He replied that they were used in and around NYC. He was able to get KW-7276 assigned to me to match my SSB-976 ID
Dave - Thanks for the link. I had no idea "Pop Com" was still out there. I browsed through the website and found Tom Kneitel's name listed as "Senior Editor". I'm glad to hear he's still around. I'm going to add a subscription to my Christmas "wish-list."
My old CRB ID was KTN4GA. Had one of the SSB Network IDs, too, SSB-619D.
I'd forgotten all about them until something stoked my memory, and I went and found some old usenet posts from the late 90s with those in my sig. Of course, the paper is long gone, and hence why I was wanting to get a nice high-resolution scan of each, so I could recreate them for me. Apparently CRB Books is no more.
I don't know about that. UPMan wrote an article about Man Machine Interface in the new Uniden Dynamic Memory scanners for Pop Comm. WB6NOA, Gordon West (Gordo) is a regular writer for them. They covered Hurricane monitoring this summer, Railroad radio, DXing The Failed States...
