    well i sure hope i am wrong.



    This is the second day in a row that i could not log on to the web page.

    I'm not talking about the forum, i'm talking about the actual site.

    I am hoping that others here can still log on, and it's just an issue with my internet service.

    Please check and post back here.

    Sad to say that I was unable to log-on either. Maybe they took it down to finally get things fixed up ... at least I hope so. That site is THE BEST for any and all info CB-wise.

    Tell me about it FourStringBurn,
    my memory seems to be lapsing can you tell which end of the diode is the anode and the cathode, the one with the stripe is the..??


    Seriously though that website is a huge repository and has tons of potential to keep C.B. radio alive, and in the hands of the people (in use, everyday).
    History tends to repeat itself, and if we are lucky we can see a pattern where C.B. radio becomes immensely popular again, by the next cycle i'm hoping..

    No question, that is the most useful site packed with all kinds of information.

    I was just making a wise crack because I am a golden screwdriver and I got the basic info from their site. I like to think I might graduate to Platinum screwdriver status one day!

    For real, let's hope they're updating their site because it is over due for it.

    Agreed!
    I'm still turning my screwdrivers brother, no doubt.
    (I hope to get a special screwdriver one day, dang nabbit)

    That website can help save thousands of nice radios from the land fill, it has the potential to anyways!

    Sure does. But sadly it has also led to the demise of many a good radio because of people who can't solder properly or follow instructions. :(
