It only took 2-3 weeks before Mr. Breaker 19 disappeared, so I'm guessing that the UP Railroad Police contacted the FCC and Uncle Charlie shut down the bootlegger. Since the licensing requirement for CB radios was done away with in the 1980's, people seem to think they can buy ANY two way radio and start jibber jabbering. Ridiculous!
lol jibber jabbering haven't heard that in years.

Anyways back to the topic. I have never heard anybody on marine, being so far from water. There are dear hunters around maybe I should listen more
