Since the beginning of my CB career (2000ish) I've noticed a worrying depletion in the amount of Cornish CB users accessible to chat with in the Lizard Peninsula area. Mostly I associate this problem with the fact that I have moved and don't live on a hill anymore, but to be frank, what is troubling me is that the regulars who used to use the CB seem to have either died, or left. I am wondering, are there any parts of the county in particular that thrive with CB activity? For example, I have never taken my Midland 42 to a city, and going on a long jaunt this summer, I would love to take the time to visit some hives of CB activity. You could call this sadness, but I have rarely had a good chat in the previous two years.

Is anyone aware of "honeypots" of activity in the country? :P I realise my post makes little sense.

I live in Chatham and we have a lot of activity around here and also up into London and over into Essex.

I used to live in Cornwall. Longstone, just up from Bodmin. Great DX upto Wales, Scotland, USA occasionally (back in '81 or so)! :-D

Hi Basilparents, did you hit Poland with your Excalibur?

Thanks,

No, I hit it with the handheld, when I used to live on a hill... a Midland 42.

I haven't really had much play with my excalibur, as as soon as I got it mounted on the outside of my house (after a long battle with my mother) my Fidelity homebase seems to have given up the ghost... or so I think. Today I have a free day, so I am going to attempt to switch it with the York.

I think I'm going to go back to using a whip on a biscuit tin in the loft... I don't get ANYTHING anymore now that I've mounted the excalibur outside the house
