Hell ---- the Florida Social Security Skip still comes in loud and clear all the way to California and Montana. Those guys are pushing 50Killowatts on huge beams and rotating mattresses.I remember a guy on a C/B out by Palm Springs his handle was DESERT IGUANA he was totally illegal.
He could be heard nite and day saying nothing. Once picked him up at Harbor in Long Beach.
Hooker & Drug Dealers use C/B to offer goods & service to truckers.
Utah Highway Patrol use to have C/Bs in cars.
Gosh...that takes me back..REACT...what memories...I once heard faint distress call from a sinking vessel in the Gulf...was able to vector a CG Helo to rescue them....those were the days!Good ol days, used to be on a team that monitored the emergency channels and got help where needed. Fun times.
