Now it might seem a little obscure being the digital world that surrounds me you may ask,

why on earth why would I want a C.B. Radio at my desk?

Well, it is quite simple really.  As some of my readers and long time follower know I live on a property with other members of my family.  It just so happens, my brother who resides here as well is a licensed amateur radio operator or as some call “HAM Radio Operators” though the source of where the term “HAM” came from has many different theories.  He also operates and monitors “C.B.” or Citizen Band as well.

I have installed the radio at my desk, and it will operate on an antenna the will only suffice for communications here locally.  Sometimes while testing or working on a radio he needs a receiver to tell him where adjustments need to be made, hence the radio install here in my workshop. (Plus it’s an easy way to call him in for dinner)

I still have to wire up the power and rig up an antenna, but I was quite tickled at how well it installed above my desk, I just had to share it.
