    Will say something for them , nobody will be able to interrupt your talking .
    Heard somewhere some truckies have gone back to analogue because no cop car can intercept their messages .

    Interesting you say that all channels on 27megs are more or less silent. Only traffic I have found is on SSB and that's usually the same old codgers banging on about the same thing!

    I've got my old President Grant SSB, a 100w linear amp, and my 3 element Yagi laying around somewhere. Used to upset everyone in the street with that one.

    That would be wasting your time John. All you will be listening to is white noise. My old radio i gave to my nephew for his cubby house whem he was 4. He's now 20.

    The base-units were quite popular and sold heaps, which makes them inexpensive to buy second hand today, but a few months ago I sold a pair of "as new" fully functional Sony 27meg 5watt hand-helds for more money than I bought them for 30 odd years ago.

    I was given one not that long ago, and unfortunately, it doesn't work.

    I bought a new one and it's in my roof console. Tried everywhere to find a SSB one, but couldn't.



    If anyone knows where to find a AM/SSB CB radio, please let me know and I will love you forever. lol.

    Rosso, I recently replaced my uniden SSB when it blew up off eBay. If you keep a look out there are quite a few on offer, especially on eBay.com
