    In the 60's I worked under a friends license as "unit 2" his call was 5W1873, later I got my own call, KCJ6684, the wife's (girl friend at the time) call was KKK2298. We communicated on the CB since she had no phone and were known as the "lovers of channel 19".

    KJH 1739. Must have been from 1975 or 76. It is engraved on the inside of my Realistic TRC490 Navaho SSB.

    There's another thread on here covering this same theme. We ought to merge them.

    Ran a Tram D201 and KKV-0978 was my call.

    Only violation was antenna above 25 feet... (The FCC found my Astroplane in the top of a 85' fir tree)

    KLK-5762 1968 Ran a Browning 23s/9 transmitter and R2700A receiver, Knight T-175, Drake W-4 wattmeter Rohn 32' tower with Mosely double stacked vertical beams. Back then it was a pretty decent set-up.

    The 40 channel CBs were available in late '76 and the local stores were closing out 23 channel models in early '77 as I recall. As I wrote in a prior post, we bought CBs for farm two-way radio use in early 1980 and we did have to request a license. Before its five year term was up, the "license by rule" automatic licensing that is in existence to this day was implemented. As I recall, "license by rule" was part of a larger bit of legislation that allowed for ten year license terms, the amateur radio VE program, and so on. Most likely "license by rule" was adopted in 1983 or thereabouts, so there were probably at least six years between the authorization of 40 channels and the cessation of individual licenses.
