General CB Radio Advice and Troubleshooting
11 posts • Page 1 of 1
No not atall. The general understanding is that the majority of cb users in the uk use 27mhz FM, from tipper drivers to tractor divers and car drivers to dx'ers alike its FM. Only the extreme dx'ers sway onto midbands and AM. You only have to look at the cbs for sale on this site. Stewart.
how many people use them is open to debate as a lot listen in but don't press the Mic wagon driver tend to stay on the company channels as do taxi and tractor drivers so you just have to keep sweeping the channels to find them
if it anit broke dont fix it
Im a tractor tractor myself in the north east of Scotland and work for a contractor with a small fleet of tractors and we work CBS for communication, channel 9. There's lots of tipper truck company's around here and they all work CBS too, some have there own channel and ul find some on 19 if they work two way radios too. Just driving down the road I still find that 8 out 10 truck drivers still have cb aerials and do you em! There's many farmers, off roaders, plant hire men, there's even a taxi firm here use em so still plenty of users about if u know where to look! There's still lots of die hard dx'ers and then there's like me a contractor that use em as two way radios but with the bonus of speaking to all your pals around the countryside on different channels as we're working! Great fun....so have fun! Stewart.
