CB Shops - Shop, Purchase, Buy Online
During the 1960s and 1970s, CB (Citizens' Band) radio was an extremely popular medium of communication with its use being widespread among everyone from government agencies and emergency services to local enthusiasts and families. Basically, everyone and their dog had a CB radio, to use a colloquialism. However, with the invention of the Internet, Internet chat rooms, and mobile phones, CB radio usage has waned in the past decade or so. CB radios are now common only among truck-drivers, emergency services (such as law enforcement and ambulances), and CB hobbyists.
When first invented, CB radios were built with space-consuming vacuum tubes, making them clunky and awkward. But, as technology progressed, these tubes were replaced with transistors and smaller, cheaper parts. A CB radio is made up of an antenna, usually about 10 metres of coiled wire, and the radio itself which receives and sends out signals produced by the microphone attached to it.
Since they are still somewhat popular, albeit now more specialized, there are many local CB shops and online CB shops available to help any shoppers looking for CB radios. Whether shopping for antennas, radios, mics, or any CB accessories, CB shops will help you out.
