Hi Guy's..

Please forgive my stupidness before I start..

Ive just brought what I thought was 2 CB radios and it turns out that they are Mid block?? :!: :!:

One is a Pan Multi-top-lcd with 40FM & 12AM and the other is a DNT Formal 1 40 FM

First of all, what is mid block? (I thought it was a bit strange that when I tried them, I couldn't hear anyone talking. lol)

Is there any use for mid block? or can they be reprogrammed to uk cb's?

Hope this doesn't sound to thick..

Many thanks in advance

ASH

mid block is rhe same freq as mid band the freq's the irish lads run on and they can not be altered


mid block = 26.965----27.405mz

uk freq = 27.60125------27.99125mz

Thanks for the reply,

So either I need to resell them to someone who wants to use them as a 2 way radio system (farmers etc) or sell them to the irish?

Does that sound about right?

Thanks
