How About A Nice Mobile Microphone For Your Mobile CB Radio

 I remember using a nice power microphone with my mobile cb radio. It was a noise canceling k40 microphone with a magnet on the back of it. It always seemed to work okay and people heard me. I can remember friends with the nice shiny D104 handheld microphone. The only issue with a power microphone in the car was that it tended to pick up alot of noise. I believe that may have been the reason why they came out with the noise canceling microphone. But you know everybody wanted that power to bust through all the people on the cb radio band.
 Today you can find quite a few mobile power microphones through Amazon. They all seem pretty popular and have some decent reviews. The other way to go aside from new would be the used power microphones at Ebay. Just make sure to read the reviews on the product and the seller before buying.

What Do You Hear On CB Radio These Days

 When I was 18 years old back in the late 70s CB Radio was pretty busy. During the daytime you had all the skip pouring in and you could hardly hear anything else. When it came to the evening the skip would die out and then there were various cb radio operators scattered throughout the 11 meter band. I generally would scan through the bands listening for friends. I would all of the sudden hit the local channel and I would end up in conversations throughout the night. One of my favorite times were when it was quiet and I would hear someone a long distance away. I would call out break break channel and they would let me get in there. I was amazed at how someone that far away would hear me.
 Today it's somewhat the same and at the same time very different. I think it's because all those people I heard back then have moved on in their lives. They went to college or got married and moved away. Then there were others that were older than me and became silent keys. There were even others that left the cb radio 11 meter band and moved into ham radio. It's like going for a ride in your old neighborhood. People grew up and moved away. Even the neighborhood looks different. Trees got bigger and everything else got smaller. I guess it's the normal way of change.
