Never thought I would do this again but I just ordered the second CB in my life.
The first CB I owned was a solid Midland Alan 48 which I used to order food from the 17th floor in a flat building I lived in before I got married or talk for a few minutes to the occasional trucker on a highway nearby when the reception was good.
The owner of the food stall down below had one too and all you needed to do was order, stick a tenner in a bucket on a string and when he called on channel 19 the order for appt 674 was ready I would lower it to the ground, he took the tenner and put my food and change in it so I could pull it up again.
Then I got married and the thing was forgotten but now I’m more and more out in the fields it’s convenient for me to be able to communicate with farmers in tractors if only just to ask if I can pass with my moped car if it takes too long like the other week. Or ask them whether they know if there are any police cars nearby as they’re very keen on catching me in places where I’m not supposed to be.

As the old Midland 27MHz CB didn’t fit in my small Microcar I decided to buy a compact version of the old radio, a nice looking Albrecht AE 6110 which does the same job except it fits on top of the dashboard in my little car. Still channel 19 though.
P.S. I think I will need to watch Convoy again now to brush up on my CB lingo. Breaker! Breaker!
