Well I've kinda only been "into" CB since having the zook, it's brilliant, like going out for a chat with your mates but you're all in separate cars, and it's absolutely invaluable when greenlaning. Cool

Many a time since I've been out in the car travelling in convoy and wished we all had CBs...... Embarassed

It´s a very interesting thing, i don´t know how it works in U.K., in Spain is very useful in motorways, people warns of danger (accidents, trafic jams, fog...) But last summer i spent my holidays around england with the cb radio switched on and i heard nobody.

In Britain it's only really truckers and taxis that use CB, plus there are a small number of "hobby" users including 4X4s.

The same in spain, trukers and a little bit of cars. The problem in Spain is that the cb radios needs a licence which costs around 90 GBP ( 107 € ). And it´s necesary one licence for each radio, i have two radios so i spent 180 GBP.

In this link you can see which channels are use around the world http://www.thiecom.de/cbforum.htm , in spain there are 40 channels between 26.965 MHz and 27.405 MHz. The channel 19 is 27.185 MHz here, so, is my band mid band as you say?

Surfing around the internet i've seen that in the u.k. cb band is as you say, between 27.60125 MHz and 27.99125 MHz, isn´t it? Do you use other kind of radios or the radios are the same?

Next time you are here listen on 27.781 you will hear a lot more!

As well as using cb I'm also a "radio ham" so I can use many frequencys, my main radio for cb is a stalker xx which has been modified so it cover uk 1-40 and also fm as well, also it will cover you mid band.

Do you work am or fm over in spain?

We use to work in am but both of them are avaiable and legal.
I've got two cb radios and i read the instructions, one of them has also the uk frecuencies, so i will try the next time with that one.

Thank you so much for the advice!

I need a Europian CB fitted to my SJ for the landy rally. Is there anywhere close to Northamptonshire that sell and fit them. Thanks
