Mine was Eagle173. I used it while driving bus loads of Syrian refugees from the UPS hubs to various states throughout the nation.

Wow, this thread brings back some fun memories! I had a base station and one in the car. You could sit there and talk for hours on those things!!

Most of us had handles related to our cars. Mine was Road Runner since I had a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner! Boy, those were some fun times!!!!!

Most of us are old enough to have lived through those days.
You know, "Smokey and the Bandit" days.

Ride around in the country on a weekend night and looking for your friends, just call out on the CB and if they were there, they would answer.
We had a channel we used a like a home base so ch. 19 wasn't crowded with BS.

Yesterdays CB is today's cell phone/social media.
Yesterdays Handle is today's User Name.


"How bout ya Stinkfoot, Flapjack, Rum Runner, (whoever you were trying to contact), you got your ears on?"
If any one else from your crew was out there they would come back.

Somehow we knew the words to all the truckers songs.

What was you Handle back in the day or still today?

I had a white 66 Mustang Fastback 2+2, 289 auto. So I went with, "White Lightening".

You must have read my post to him....

I had a secession of black Dodge vans during that craze..

Handle was "Black Knight"..

I also sprung for one of the first "Fuzzbusters"....radar detectors..

I couldn't count the number of times I saw them up on dashboards with that big red light pointing in the wrong direction..

Good buddy is no longer an acceptable name to call someone. If you say "ten four good buddy" to someone, you are guaranteed to get an earful from them. A "good buddy" is a homosexual. Saying ten four good buddy is the same as saying "I understand, *aggot!"

Let me correct myself. If you say that to your friends, it is probably acceptable. If you say it to a truck driver, it is not acceptable.
