Hi All,

Hope all's dandy.

A while ago, I posted about a book I was writing about CB radio, and in particular, eyeball cards.

I'm chuffed to say it's coming out in September and can be pre-ordered from Amazon, Waterstones, Foyles etc. from now.

It looks like this-

I'd like to share all the good numbers with those who helped in any way, shape or form, and cheers Andy for letting me post on here.

If you check it out, I hope you enjoy it.

Best wishes,

Not a bad title that Stampman :)

Quite a lot to live up to though. "As he walked through the valley of buzbys" etc.

How's about QSL cards also?.....I had at least a hundred from around the UK and Europe..Sadly, I gave mine to my boy to play with when he was a little 'un.....How I regret it now!!......Yep, me and my old Nato 2000 certainly got everywhere 8-)

Regarding Busby, and the old days of illegal CB radio. Having to keep an eye out for the law added spice to the fun we had with mobile operation...Having a DV 27 antenna attracted attention, so we were constantly on the lookout....police cars, and headlights at night made me feel like a WW2 spy and his suitcase transmitter.

There was a CB Bible written in the early 80's :)
