My first radio was a York 863 which I bought in Boots (yes a chemists shop!) in November 1981 - I'm very sorry I sold it :cry:

It was £89.99

I fancy a Midland 4001 these days - not because it's a great performer, but for it's 1970's look :D

Here, have a Rotel RVC240 and a Reftec 934 in the Cupboard :!: Love those Yorks and Harrier CBX's
Yep they are pretty nice :p and i had all of my stuff given me by a neighbour! i did just sell a tidy cbx for a nice price :) served me well that one did, the nato is in need of a good looking over now unfortunatly. and i might be selling one of my ra-201's soon aswell :)

Hi Folks,
My 1st rig was a PE Ranger. It was British built, had 6 channels (cyrstal controlled) ch 9 to 14. It was a portable with built in ni-cads. It came with a 2ft rubber-duck antenna. I got it for xmas 1981 and lived in a small village called Hatfield Broad Oak nr Bishops Stortford. There were loads of people on CB just in the village and although the range of my radio was crap, I still spent hours chatting. My only problem was if I called for a copy on 14, the person who replied would say 'knock it to 22' or so and before I could tell them I only had 6 channels they had gone :( The rig had lots of problems and soon was replaced with a Midland 2001 from Wall To Wall CB Supplies in Ongar. I remember once, chatting up a bird from Hatfield Heath and finally eyeballed her.. poor lass..it was like John Prescott in drag :shock: .Happy Days??
I would LOVE to get hold of a Ranger just for old times sake. I look back at the many friends I have made on the radio since. I left CB around the mid 90s when I got my ham ticket. I have now sorta come full circle. I,m finding ham radio has lost its buzz and after getting back on the cb bands have found lots of folks like me, back on channel. I am enjoying radio again. Looking forward to taking the cb on holiday and seeing whos about in other parts. If anybody out there remembers the cb era around Hatfield Broad Oak or that area.... be nice to hook up. (XR2 if you read this, I still think your handle is naff :lol: ).

10-10 for now.
