Many years back, my kids gave me my handle, "OLD SNAKE" They had been listening to a commercial on tv where they said "you old rattlesnake" and shortened it. Ur=sed it for years. In fact that was the year we started camping.... 1972 or so.....

Yes. We heard these stories but never saw the vehicle here. There were a few that I wanted to get caught. When they keyed up, it shut everyone else down. Boy were they powerful.
I had a Realist Navaho base/mobile. Not fancy but my friends envied it.

Cougarkid, just like my user name. Started it in 1978. My first car was a 1970 Cougar XR7. Thus, the CB handle. KBEX-3005 license.

I still have that car!

KACR9794 Early 70's, only 23 channels. Same handle, "Hooligan". (Coast Guard was the Hooligan Navy) License did start at $20 and required you repeat your call sign at every transmission.
Wife's call sign was "Miss Fortune"

The Coast Guard did monitor CB in the helo, but we were discouraged from answering calls except distress, our radio put out 1500 watts.

I was also a Ham Radio operator on Loran Stations at Saipan and Palau Islands, we used the MARS network to call home through HAM operators in the states.

All these people saying all you hear is dirty stuff... I drive 2300 miles a week... I Very seldom hear any nasty stuff... No more than anywhere else... When I do, there is a volume knob... I turn it down for a couple minutes,, then back up... No prob... I like to hear whats going on in front of me... Or help someone out with directions,, etc... Oh,,, by the way my old "handle" was motorhead,,, because I was a racer guy... Then a guy at work named me "motormonkey" because I liked telling jokes and seeing people laugh... Then it just went to Monkey for most I work with.....

No CB now. Haven't used one in over 30 yrs. Years ago when I got into CBs my handle was "Green Indian" because I was driving a green Pontiac Bonneville. Actually had 3 green Pontiacs in a row over a period of nearly 10 years. So it worked for me. If I were to add a CB to my coach today I don't know what I'd use as a handle.

After 30+ years of have one in the semi, now retired, my handle was "Guardrail" don't remember my license #, too many other #'s that were way more important, I guess? I never had one in the house, I guess after listening to them in the truck all those years, just wanted to get away from them for awhile! I used the rf. gain knob a lot, and usually could not hear far out, but just close when someone was trying to get ahold of me! In the MH, unless I was traveling in a group, I would not turn it on, unless for a emergency or to find out road conditions. Back in the late 70's I remember driving to Key West, and hearing the fishing boat's talking back and forth, and talking to them. I was amazed how far you could talk across the open water! Rail!

Back in the mid 70's I was "wooliebooger", call sign KSL7814. Used it a fair amount on I-80 in WY where there were a lot of truckers. Especially handy when the 55 MPH speed limit was in effect! Ever try to drive 55 MPH on an interstate? Cobras were big then, and that's what I still run in the MH.

Ken- Remember a "wooliebooger" driving for Werner on a trip from Newport RI to New Orleans, (I-95/85) late 70's. We crossed paths several times over 2 days.

Hooligan, We monitored a CB in the radio room at St Paul AK. Our "handle" was "Coast Guard". The weather station was "Weather Station" and the local AK Trooper was "Police"! Every house on the island (all 50 or so) had a CB for communications. It was like a huge party line. Sometime in the mid 70's I heard they actually got a telephone system. Wish I had had my Ham license then. We had no MARS station the year I was there.

I've heard all the stories about Palau!!!!!

In the late 70's I was in a 4 wheeler with icycles hanging off it in WY. Must have been a "copycat" wooliebooger. There was an oilfield service company called wooliebooger, and I stole it from them.
