Uniden 200

Above is a picture of a Uniden Uniace 200, similar to the one I used in the house from ’83 to ’86 up in Preston, and then from ’92 to about ’94 in various crap cars in The Accused Midlands. Mine is in a box somewhere, either in the loft or under the stairs. I had some awful Motorola 2 channel (14 & 30) handsets that ran off what we used to call R11 batteries, but I can’t find pictures of them.

Back in those dark days, I was “PACMAN“.

Last year I decided to have a bash of CB again, so I sponged out about £60 quid on a CRT One N UK/EU radio and antenna for the car.

Yeah, one of them

It isn’t brilliant, but that is probably the shite antenna that came with it. Also, it doesn’t do SSB. I foresee an upgrade soon.

I also have a Midland 98+ that I got for a tenner from a junk shop in Southport. It is better that the CRT on reception, but I’m not tranmitting on it until I sort out the antenna.

These days I’m 26-CT-3548.
