When I was filling up with fuel today I noticed a sign saying turn off your CB radio, that took me back a bit,

Re: Were you on CB radio

Rotel RVC240, Midland 4001 - I still have a couple in the cellar.

Also had Ham international multimode II, a jumbo base station and others.
I used to repair & modify them in my shed in Loveclough.

Had a Teunderpole II aerial, also a big 3 element beam.

The beam made it such fun when combined with other gear so I could wind people in Burnley up saying I was from another country - winding the signal up & down... lol

Gave up rig fixing when I was in Burnley.

I think mine was a midland, some of the time it was in the car and the rest of the time it was in my bedroom.
