Gday all,

Does anybody know who still sells SSB CBs. Preferably uniden. I know there in the trader section, but I would prefer new.

James.

Dick Smith Electronics and Tandy usually have some, otherwise a specialist Comms Business where you live should be able to help. They are not that common anymore as UHF has more or less taken over.

What a shame people have gone away from 27mhz; while they might not have been as good as UHF but we used to have a bit of fun with it.
One morning while on a caravan safari up at Cue in WA, while waiting for the others to get moving, I had a good discussion with a chap in Adelaide on the lower side band until I lost the skip.
Once , from Perth I listened to a conversation between Melbourne and Norfolk Island in my vehicle, quite amazing I thought, considering the distance.
Can't do that with the UHF

Not much fun at all on UHF.
We use to talk to USA when the skip was right and it was great to when you had the extra channels put in and a bit of a power upgrade.
I still have the Washington Base Station packed away somewhere, all those memories and dont forget the QSO cards, should ask for one of those next time your chatting to someone on UHF.
Cheers

It is highly rumoured that both GME and Uniden will stop producing 27MHz tranceivers in 2006 because of low demand.

Cheers,

Uniden won't stop producing 27Mhz cause it's still the major use for free to air communications in the U.S. Uniden might stop importing them into Oz. GME might stop making them cause they don't sell over there. Truckies, 4X4's, caravans, etc all still use 27Mhz in the States.
