What is CB radio?
CB (citizen's band) radios are a great way of keeping in touch over longer distances without the need for a call plan or licence. With a CB radio, you can keep in touch when you're moving in convoy or check what's going on in the next field without the need for satellites or mobile phones. CB radios use 40 licence free FM channels, so you can easily talk to others using other CB radios at any time.

How easy is the LT-298 to set up?
The radio comes with cable to attach it to a DC 12-13.8V power supply (not included). The radio does not come with an antenna, but does have a UHF SO-239 socket to connect a compatible antenna to. For sound, the radio has a 3.5mm mono 1W output for connecting an eight ohm speaker which will give you a stronger audio output.

Where can I use this CD radio?
The radio can be used in most European countries and comes with a choice of channel options just make sure you use the channels that are permitted in each country. The radio comes with emergency channels on channel nine and 19, and a handy switch to flick between the two..

I met my wife through CB radio........:(

Around my way in the eighties there would always be the idiot who had a 600 foot aerial on the car for the CB radio. Could chat to people in Moscow apparently.

The old MPT 1320 27/81 band will continue to be available for the foreseeable future. On 27 June 2014, changes were made by Ofcom to allow the use of AM & SSB modes on CB in the UK legally for the first time.


^^I didn't know that^^ especially AM bands I suppose it's was dropped because of the switchover to digital TV

and yes I used to be a CBer
with my own personal built loft antenna made from BT phone wire (in flat X design) because the council stopped me using the military telescopic mast for my antenna
but with my home made antenna on a very sunny day I hit Ireland and Australia (weather conditions have to be right so that signals bounce off the atmosphere)
but generally on FM 27 you are restricted to about 30 miles if you are lucky (not sure about FM 934) and AM was very dead in the 80's killed off because it was illegal and the main cause of TV signal interference

And (don't quote me on this) if I remember correctly it's where you would find your first troll (now your internet troll)

Can't hear you. Sidebands are bleeding all over you.

My neighbour had one with a 20/30ft aerial off his shed. Was the call something like "CQ CQ CQ"?!

Oh the memories....we had so much fun, microphone in one hand, ciggie in the other, trying to drive, smoke, talk and fiddle with your squelch control.
Now you can't even talk to your passenger without getting into trouble.

When the early illegal imports were smuggled in from the U.S. the basic models had 40 channels on am.
These were followed by 120 (and possibly more) band radios and it was fun.
When CB was legalised the sets were limited to fm.
When the illegal sets were used there was a fairly strict etiquette that was pretty well adhered to but once legalised more foul language and abuse became more common.
Having youngsters at the time I removed the set from my car.
It would be interesting to see what the traffic, if any, is being transmitted.
Thanks for posting, heat added

Ah, happy memories... Henry's of Edgware Road back in the day and their wonderful range of stuff I couldn't afford as a kid.
