Advice to anyone who buys a new UHF CB radio as I did today: don't bother testing it within earshot of city repeaters. Not unless you enjoy listening to the local lowlife, that is.
Hope it gets better out of town...

Channel 40 is normally a little more down to earth, listen to the truckies.

Its worse at the moment with all the kids on holidays. I have 4 kids and don't even bother switching it on in the city with the kids in the car.

If you travel in convoy often AM is much quieter, all have moved to UHF, cheap sets, easy install, no hassles. Kept all my AM gear from 20 years ago when UHF got going, thought that one day it would come in handy again.

In convoy we let the kids have the AM CB. They can then chat between vehicles without upsetting the adults and tripping the scanning UHFs
