A CB Radio is a Ciitizen Band like a walkie talkie that goes for miles, truckers used them to communicate between each other, and then people in cars used it. Picture it like a Nextel but every one on that station could listen to your conversation. Sort of like the old cop radios in their cars, or in a boat. Long antenna on the back of your car and this huge box with 3 knobs, volume, frequency tuner and a knob to change stations (numbers)
It was pretty cool back then. I was 18 when my father had one. People would talk LIKE Breaker breaker good buddy over and out------stuff like that people had their own Handle name Not Screen Name Or E-Mail address but similar.
Thats a cute question only because I am 48 so I am assuming that you are around 20 somthing or younger (just a guess)
Do you know what an 8 track is? Do you know how to work a turn table? or phonograph? Just teasing, when my daughters kids hit the age of 20 they wil probably be asking what is a cell phone??????????? Who knows! Happy New Year!
