Citizens Band (CB) radio celebrates 60th anniversary

Post by 14CS06 » 11 Sep 2018, 20:33

Hello

On September 11, 1958 the Class D CB service was created on 27 MHz, and this band became what is popularly known today as “Citizens Band”. There were only 23 channels at the time; the first 22 were taken from the former amateur radio service 11-meter band, and channel 23 was shared with radio-controlled devices. Some hobbyists continue to use the designation “11 meters” to refer to the Citizens Band and adjoining frequencies.

My Fidelity Homebase will be 37 in less than a couple of months time. Hope it isn't expecting a birthday party :)
