I was only a kid when we got a rig, my first was a Jaws, teeny little thing it was and built to be chucked out a window cos they were still illegal at the time, we were on AM . I remember going on the march through wigan chanting
"what do we want" "CB!!!"
" When do you want it"..."NOW!"
" What frequency?"
"27AM............GIZ A 9? 27AM!!!!"

I was minni starlight.

I've still got one in the truck, it's a Midland Allen with AM/FM/MID BAND, it's still handy for finding out about traffic delays enabling me to take an alternative route, and it's not covered by the mobile phone reg's, we can still use the microphone without being prosecuted,
The one I had before it was a PRESIDENT LINCOLN, until some lowlife nicked it out of my truck one weekend

I still use AM, although not on CB frequencies, I like it's clarity, it's punch, BBC quality etc.

I had several rigs over the years, mobile and home based. I was The Fonz on AM and later Playboy on FM.

My god. IAN!!!!!

How you doing matey. Long time no see.

Yep, I remember the whisky and milk. NEVER DRANK IT SINCE!!! lol.
p.s. Keep quiet about the 70's thing. I'm sure it was the 80's anyway, lol.

I've got just one thing to say to you Emp. "Hey!"

Just read your earlier post. Minni Starlight. I remember you. I had a couple of mates round the corner from you , Ruby (Donna) and her sis (Sharon), can't remember her handle and their dad Don. In those days my handle was Playboy.
