Re: Question is CB dead...or do you just have to have SSB

There are a few places where either CB or PMR are used:

+Quarries

+Farms

Saves them paying out for their own private frequencies. Talking of PMR there are available longer range PMR handhelds instead of the standard five mile range. IIRC these have a twenty mile range

Re: Question is CB dead...or do you just have to have SSB

There is a little traffic here in Dorset. HAM operators use CB band 8 - 10 evenings before moving to HAM when propagation picks up

Re: Hello old CB user looking to get back

Hi Tango Sierra welcome back

CB is pretty quiet nowadays unlike the 80's but generally HAM operators are on CB from around 8pm to 10pm when conditions are better for HAM
