Who remembers the CB Fox Hunts?

One breaker would go and park up in some obscure location. Transmitting for sixty seconds every other minute & all the other breakers would hunt him down and the nearer to the 'strawberry patch/30+ the nearer you are to the fox. Everyone puts say a fiver in the pot & the first to find the fox gets the pot.

Sometimes the proceeds were donated to a designated charity

More serious was when we breakers assisted the police for a lost child. Obviously the police wouldn't give us one of their radio's so we gave the police one of ours so we could stay in radio contact the police & us

One particular occasion we found the lost child first but we wished the police had beaten us to it

I'll leave the rest for your imagination

HAM operators here are on CB evenings from 8pm to 10pm when there's better propagation on the HAM bands
