The Big Net - 36 Years Of Legal CB Radio In The UK


Yes it's almost that time of the year again when CB radio operators all over the UK get together to celebrate the anniversary of the legalisation of the UK CB radio system.

Way back in 1981 the UK gained access to legal CB radio after many years of illegal use of imported American radios. The UK was allocated a unique band comprising 40 channels using Frequency Modulation (UK40). 

Later, rules were relaxed and the EU (Mid) band was also granted again using Frequency Modulation only. Now of course AM and SSB are also legal here in the UK on the EU band and we still have our UK40 band to use as well. 

So why not join the celebration? 

MAIN NET: 36 years of legal UK CB radio on Thursday 2nd November 2017 19:00 - 22:00 hours (BST) on Ch36 UKFM (27.95125Mhz).
