When the PLL tuners made their appearance in CB radio, it didn't take long for tinkerers like myself to find that you could modify the PLL chips to create many more channels on your CB other than just the legal 40. A couple of my radios operated in 10m and down below CB into "Civil Air Patrol" freqs. It wasn't wise to play around on those lower freqs, though. Skip was sooo easy during the sunspot peak of '79 or so. I would be sitting in the room chatting with a local friend and a booming "Breaker" would come through. I'd end up chatting with the newcomer for a few moments before finding out they were in Toronto, Canada. Fun times! I still have a pile of QSL cards from that solar peak. By the time it peaked again in '90, I was already out of radio. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
