I have a neighbour who has recently dug out his old 80's CB, and rigged it up with an old magmount and areial he used to use on his van.
He has mounted the areial on a scaffolding pole so it sits around 12 feet in the air.
Back in my CB days in the 80's you were lucky to get 5 miles out on a standard 4w 27MHz set up.
However recently my neighbour claims to have able to have had conversations with users as far north as Aberdeen, Eire, Spain,Italy, & Germany.
Is this likley ? or even possible ? Or is somebody yanking his chain. We are in South Derbyshire.
