RE: IRC is like CB these days!
Lol the main reason I know about CB radio is from Smokey and the Bandit. And the only reason I have any idea what IRC is, is because of Don mentioning it, I believe it was in an older post about changing our TVF chat client. I looked it up and fell down the wiki-hole. You want to feel old? I was born in 92, never seen a CB radio except in movies or TV shows.

And if you should survive to 105, look at all you'll derive out of being alive, and here is the best part, you've got a head start, if you are among the very young at heart!

I still have a CB radio in my jeep. It's perfect for when we go on runs. CB radio is pretty much required equipment when going out wheelin'

RE: IRC is like CB these days!
Funny you should mention that Don29, while reading the posts from Michael I was wondering which box my old gear was in - and for the same reason - I know lot of the 4x4 guys still use it and it is far more reliable for when you're in the middle of nowhere with no cell towers...

RE: IRC is like CB these days!
Radios are my husband's hobby. As far as I can tell, a lot of old guys talking about the weather. The goal, like the biggest cloud, is to see how far away you can reach someone. Once the radio goes in the car it's a CB. Still people out there, and weather talk turns into traffic chat.
