    Barney … then you are more versed in this subject than I. I’ve never done any Ham radio exploration.

    Dave – You never had a CB radio?
    Monitor 9 = emergency channel (police often monitored this)
    Ch 19 was the main trucker’s channel.
    These radios originally required the FCC license (K**-1234) until they were overwhelmed by the “CB radio craze of 1975/” and in 76 the FCC removed the license requirement, lowered the wattage from 5 to 4 watts, and increased the channels from 23 – 40.
    I recently read a vintage newspaper from the late 60s here where the local police chief was asking people with CB radios to call in suspicious activity during a crime spree period. Police dispatch had a base station to monitor and reply.

    Well, I remember the CB craze (Convoy, Smokey and the Bandit, etc … I was 10 in 1975). We only ever had a CB installed in our jeep and we only used the CB for jeep club runs, so I only knew the basics. Since there was rarely more than 10 of us doing club runs, I didn’t have to know much (and clearly still don’t know much).

    I didn’t know they did QSL cards for ham radio. A friend got me interested in short wave radio reception way back, and I wrote for QSL cards all over the world. Listened on a 1930’s tube radio.
