Re: Anyone running CB's in their truck these days?

This thread just brought a smile to my face, I was thinking I was the only one left out there in CB land. The CB radio still has it uses for things. As stated above at Bonneville, also Off Roading, Boating, Swamp buggies, Backwoods/Basecamp coms.,Even Air to bush supply drops. They are overlooked mostly in todays electronics world. But they are still available, and with free airtime, Also stated above about "SKIP" radio and sidebands, I have a hopped up old Galaxy with them, its been shelved for years but I used to talk all over the country and some over oceans with that radio, add a little Linear heat from top a big hill and the air waves would take you world wide at times I have a Cobra 29LTDW now. I'm an avid outdoors-man so weather comes in handy now and then. I had it peaked, and tuned back in the late 90's and it still works great to this day. I never power it by 12volt "socket", hard wired to + terminal of the battery and a sufficient ground also under the hood compartment. I used a HD inline fuse, that has a power kill switch also. For my antenna, I have to say, I love my Wilson's. I have a magnet mount 1000 on my 72, but have a "Lil Wil" mag mount for other Vehicles,ATV's, Boats, etc... There are alott of aftermarket gadgets, doo-dads, decals, noise toys, all over flEbay for the 29. The magnet mount antenna are great as you can place them anywhere metal, for paint protection, Just put a scrap of silk between the mount and the surface. all the Wilson antenna's are very easy to set SWR's by a pair of set screws at the base of the stainless whip. "FWIW" on all my vehicles, toys i also use a simple Red/Black quick 12 volt disconnect and have the same end pre wired/installed, and several mounting brackets for the Cobra 29 so I can just swap the radio and the antenna if needed from one ride to the next. If I Buy another one, It will be this one. IMO i think it still has a Nostalgic look to it, and the night colors go good with the factory gauges in our trucks.

Re: Anyone running CB's in their truck these days?

Got this one from a neighbor . Not real sure of application. He said it was from a 70's Chevy pickup. Kind of cool with 8 track AM FM and Cb all in one.

10-04 There Cherokee John, That's a pretty-looking rig. Is the green/white paint job a special deal, or did you leavethe truck parked in the summer where the passenger side was exposed to direct sunlight, and it bleached?

I had [have still] a string of Johnson Messenger transcievers. I [''Whiteface''] and II [''Blackface''] are tube-type and as big and long as mailboxes. Then the Messenger III [ or 123?] is solid state and about the size of yours. Not sure if any of them work, but those tube rigs really broadcast it out, even barefoot. They were built with 5 watts final out, not the 3.5, later mandated by Uncle Charlie. With a good base location [Burbank side of Hollywood Hills] and a HyGain CLR omni antenna, I once got out with my Whiteface on the north/south skip layer [E or F?] and QSO'd with a YL on the south slope of Mount Saint Helen's. It was about midnight and it was 1967.

I have a Radio Shack SSB mobile on a tiltstand I can place in the passengerside footwell, that can switch between vehicles. It works, but with the magmount stubby, the SSB effect is wasted. Also need to trick up the glaring white early model LED screen with some translucent blue gel.

Well threes and eight there Buddy, the OrangeSunshine is over and out.

Interesting post cherokeejohn, thanks for sharing. It highlights the need for a 'hop up your CB' thread (or this thread could become that in addition to what it already is if OP is good with that - CG, I don't want to hijack - this is an awesome thread already, so maybe this idea would be good to start anew - over to you my friend). I recall the 70's & 80's out of the box CBs were nice, but to make one really effective (and extend the range), it took some work and a little money. Would be great to have a thread that outlines what was available then/now, and how, for CB upgrades. Antenna rundown also.

That's a square radio Paul - I really like them also. Difficult to fit in a 67-72 without dash mods that you may find difficult to make work with the 67-72 dash indent for the stock radio that is really sized to be proportional to and wrap the face of a 67-72 radio. I wish they were a direct fit, that would sure be nice wouldn't it? If you EVER think you might buy a squarebody, I'd get that thing working and horde it away. I never thought I'd buy a square - but then I changed my mind I'd be curious to see if anyone else has successfully integrated a square radio into a 67-72 and how they did it, etc. We really never see these in 67-72's, and if it were an easy swap, I bet thousands of folks would've done it in the 70s and 80s.

Re: Anyone running CB's in their truck these days?

I say keep it rolling with CB info here instead of splitting it up. This can become the "official cb in your truck" thread =)

Ive already learned a lot.

Back in the day, [I first logged on in 2002] on 67-72ChevyTrucks,com, we used to have CB-related posts on the Truck Audio forum, but CB interest on there died off as audio/video/onboard computers and other witchcraft-like stuff got more popular and sophisticated. Also cell phones took over the mobile-to- mobile comm role.
For my part, I don't care where they put the CB-related threads, as long as we keep the QSO going. We can keep it here or the Mods could move us over there, but most folks don't think of CB as an audio device anymore. It seems more like it's a quaint, obsolescent vintage accessory to them, since they have no working knowledge of the 2-Way medium and its traditions.

Re: Anyone running CB's in their truck these days?

I purchased this CB on the board a couple years ago from 70cst and I now have the truck I want to put it in. Not sure what all is involved or what is needed to get it up and going so been following this thread trying to figuring out all the different items needed......any advise would be great. To start with I will need a mounting bracket any available for this unit. Can someone advise proper power supply ? Should it come from fuse box ? Key switch ? Types of available antennas ? The truck I want to put the CB in apparently had one at one point as the ash tray has the microphone clip attached to it. (see pic) Thanks for any help.

Nothing complicated. The red lead [+] goes to a 12 VDC source and should have a fuse inline with it. The black lead goes to any good contact on the cab.
Or, if you want it to move between trucks, you could power it with a cigarette lighter plug.
If you connect to the fuse box, it's your decision whether you want the radio to be turned on even if the key is out, or go off with the key.

Antennae: The 1/4 wave 108''[?] whip is the best. Twin Truckers [''Rabbit Ears''] are cool and if you're sporting West Coast Junior mirrors, you can mount them there. If moving the rig between trucks, you'll want a magnetic mounted stubby. These are OK for copying the mail, but don't get out [transmit] very well.
The antenna socket in any CB rig is an SO-239 and the antenna line connector is a PL-259. Antenna cable is a sheathed coaxial type with internal resistance of 50 Ohms, type RG-58/U. It's important you get the proper resistance cable as without it you will burn up the final stage of your transmitter. Don't transmit without an antenna or a dummy 50 Ohn plug, or you will ''let the Blue Smoke'' out.
Truck stops are the best current source for these things, as Radio Shack has folded.

If the manufacturor's supplied mounting bracket has been lost, you can make your own out of light gauge strap steel. You'll want a piece, less than 2'' wide, that's the width of the rig across the back, plus the sides. Bend the sides down, radius them and drill 1/4'' holes in the centers of your 'ears' for the mounting thumbscrews. These screws can be had from Ace Hardware and are 1/4''-20 with round, black plastic knobs. If you want to go cheap and fast, you could use perforated 'plumbers tape'.

Swap meets, C-list, yard sales, flea markets, flea bay, truckstops, guy down the alley. Where-ever. Being vintage specific is getting picky. I would just want one that worked. The early ones just had 23 channels. Not so fun if your Buddy's up on 40 and you got no ears that swing that way.

eBay

Put in Vintage CB

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Up until about 74 all the CB's were 23 channels. Some might have had Upper Side Band and Lower Side Band.

After about 74 CB's went to 40 Channel.
