I would like to know if the old CB radios used in the 80s are still useful today.
I have a 40 channel General Electric. I need an aerial and speakers but don't want to spend money if these units are
no longer in use. If they are still used, what channels?
thanks
Ronnie

Hi Ronnie, drop me a mail, neil@4x4direct.co.za and I will get you added to the "2Way Radio Club", currently there is a "come back" on the CB side, we have plenty guys here in Gauteng using the radios again.
