Lately a nice person said he had an old "bakkie" (27 MHz transceiver).
"That's interesting" I said, and in no time he handed me his Premier CB1000.
Of course I had to give live to this small rig. That was easy; a small amount of contact spray
and resoldering a mic connection made this old Citizen Band device work.
I connected the CB1000 to my G5RV jr antenna and tuned it with the ATU on 11m.
No big deal.
It was interesting to discover that there still is a lot activity on the citizenband in FM mode.
To my surprise I was able to make 2 local QSO's with the 4 Watt FM transmitter, which was a nice experience.
My latest CB activity was in 1978 (if I recall well) when I was 15 years old and still
living in de Betuwe with my parents.
Maybe I can encourage somebody on channel 14, 27,125 MHz, to study for the N- or F- radio licence...
