Product overview

I vividly recall these crazy road trips down to the Sunshine Coast with my best mate, Hercules and his parents Hugo and Sally. Back in those days the CB radio was definitely our preferred form of entertainment. (The other choice was Leif Garrett on Hugo's 8-track!)

Hercs and I would chat with all sorts of people... mostly other kids who thought they were cool, saying things like, "Hey, good buddy. This is the Big Red Ant (everyone needed a "handle") wondering where the pork products (police) are smoking (hiding.)"

Then someone named Big Al or Sloppy Joe would respond that "a bear in the air" (police helicopter) was nearby or that a "dozing hog" (police in a stopped car) was 2 clicks past the Big Avocado!!!

Then there was a C.W. McCall song called "Convoy" which immortalized the CB culture and its bizarre slang. If you don't remember, here's how it starts:

"Ah, Breaker One-Nine, this here's the Rubber Duck. You got a copy on me, Pig-Pen? C'mon."

"Ah, yeah, 10-4 Pig Pen, fer sure, fer sure. By golly, it's clean clear to Flag-Town, c'mon.""

Anyway, that was then and this is now! But the point remains that these things are still cool... But why would you want one when there's mobile phones, MSN, Gmail chat and so on? Well here's why...

As long as you're reasonably close to the person you want to talk to, let's say within 3KM's, this thing's a beauty. With this there'll be no more paging someone else in the office. No more using up airtime calling people just a short distance away on your mobile phone. If you're working on a building site or trying to communicate effectively at an event or a LAN party, this thing will work wonders. You can even use it to talk to other vehicles on road trips, or when you're hiking or bike riding. Get the drift? These cheap handheld CB radios are the bees knees of affordable and effective communication.

So if you want to go 'back to the future... TODAY' then make sure you get these little rippers now. Because they ain't gonna be around tomorrow!
