Nothings changed since the '70s on CBs lol My parents, and us of course were big into em back then. Dad made a LOT of friends on the radio. We were in a group, we would go to CB meets and do parking lot security, during them meetings. Dad n mom won a few door prizes like mobile cb's etc over those years, we had lot of fun at it. We went to Baja, the president had a little mountain spot 1 mile from the beach, we went there on the 4th of July.....Of course there was lots of beer drinking going on, they even had 1/4 sticks of dynamite blowing off those were LOUD!

Me and the old man (dad) got into a fist fight, I was 15, he was drunk, and got in between me and another guy I went to high school with, I was gunna beat his azz after he doused me with a 5 gallon bucket of water I told him not to...I never seen my old mans eyes turn colors like a demon, when I shoved him n told him in a lotta F' bombs etc to get outta my way. Well, I'm ducking n dodges dads punches, getting a few in myself, when he had me up against the horse fence. I took a full on shot at my face, I ducked, he hit 4x4 fence post and busted his pinky bone outta his hand...

Our joke after thru out life, Pop's would tell me, I ain't ever to old to get MY azz whipped HAHAHA, I'd tell him "Yeah old man? I ain't 15 no mo' and I'm bigger than you, so if you feel froggy ***hole, JUMP!" Was good for a laugh, I miss the old guy ! He'd been goin on 90 next year

We got our house roof done 1 weekend by dads buddies in 1 day, lots of beer and pizzas lol.....Dad ended up in '80s with an illegal then, base station and 1000 watt linear (military style pull out base) He's talk to Ozzies etc "shootin skip" It could slide thru FM radio bands, n talk like you're on the phone.Had all the goodies side band, etc.

Heard a few stories, around us there were idiots blowing up with crap spam, talking smack etc. Dad and couple his friends went out at least 2 times during the night. Used a loop tracker thingy, to track down the problem makers.....1 time they hook a chain to this guys tower outside his house, tore it down with the truck and drug it down the street a few blocks, and dropped it.....Another time I heard them talking bout them going out to a couple other guys houses and putting strain pins in the coax cable. So next time they keyed their mic's, it fries their radio's finals, and burns up the radio lol

Ok enuff rambling, the topic, just brought back a flood of good ole' memories

Back in the early 80s I was stationed in Augsburg, GE. We had a really BIG antenna. Caught some guy out of Boston on his CB after work. Hell of a skip.

I used to sit on my Dad's CB in the late 70s and chat-up my friends. Early version of TikTok ;)

Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

After my divorce, my parents wanted me and my 2 kids to live with them, so ok cool, mom watched my 2 little ones while I worked nights at WM. This 1 night the wanna-be gang bangers next door (after welfare checks came in) were partying a bit in their driveway with their car music playing. Pop's was in his tighty whiteys "trying to watch tv. He got ticked off at the loud music (11-12am) Got up, went out on the porch in his undies lol told them to turn that crap down, he was watching tv. He didn't care how many of em were out there, and they turned it down, so he comes back inside to his recliner.

Well, not long after the music starts back up, so he get's up n goes over to his little radio room by the kitchen. Fires up his rig, of 1000 watts, plus his lollipop mic/base station, was tweaked as well. So he key's up the mic, and tells them again "Turn your damn music down NOW" his base station took over their car stereo speakers, and all you heard was Pop's voice out their speakers !! Well, the music went OFF, and so did their little party time.....These neighbors, thinking they were gangsters, NEVER gave us any crap the few years living there, and they never partied between our houses again! lol
