Hi
I'm new to this forum and CBs in general...
I live in France and have acquired a Midland 77-805uk. Before I splash out on batteries or try to find a mains adapter, can you tell me if I can even use this rig in France. I understand from a bit of investigation that at the time it was made, European channels were not used in the UK and vice-versa.....so can I or can't I??
The radio is in excellent condition with antenna and mic/speaker all present so it would be a shame to let it sit and rot.

Thanks in advance
