Yup, my dad got a CB in the 60's...and, being a tinkerer, the first thing I did was tear it apart to try & figure out how it worked...got in trouble for that! Which led me to licensed ham radio, which led me to a degree in electronics & FCC commercial license, which led me to a profession in telecommunications maintenance. Funny how silly things like CB radio can steer your life! I just remembered a funny CB radio story. After taking apart my dad's CB radio to see what made it tick, as a teen I made some acquaintances of my age talking on the silly thing, and I also played guitar at the time...and I was kind of a prankster too. So, my prankster/tinkerer brain wheels started turning one day when I saw my Premeir spring reverb unit sitting on top of my guitar amp and thinking: "Hmm, what if I...?"...and I broke out the soldering iron. So, I wired the reverb unit into the CB radio and called myself the "Dead Man"...and it used to freak people out when it sounded like I was talking to them from the grave with the reverb turned on. What silly kids won't do for attention.
