GUILTY AS CHARGED! I was on from 81 through to 88, and i was one of the TURKEYS that iron cross and friends tried to get. but i was young and stupid then. now i'm just old and dumb! i was always mobil

Right to get this thread back going again.. there is another recording of old 'boxer' on http://ukcb.tripod.com there was two more of tony rifleman, but recorded quality was low, so being re-done. i

Around 1983, some mates and I recorded "our version" of "The Curse of the Claw" (Ripping Yarns) onto an audio cassette tape then I hooked it up to my Dad's CB rig in Bulwell with his recently acquired

Itsearly 80s since I heard One Alpha but I remember the rhetoric.

"Attention, this is One Alpha, who is going to help me push this cement mixer up Carlton Hill"

Have you got a link to what you were listening to?

The link I listened to was http://livecbradio.co.uk/ Had to use Internet Explorer to load the audio tracks, wouldn't work with FireFox.

The recordings are on a loop, I came in at the bit where 1A is sending Morse, badly. The "ranty" bit is later in the recording.

i have a friend who claims to have some of the original Alphas on an old reel to reel,

when he gets them on MP3 i'll upload them to the livecbradio site :)

i also have another 10 hours of boxer and some o the bulwell hardnuts, 10-1 tom, betty happiness and smokey, my dogs bigger than yours, all typical brain dead CBer stuff

but need to re record it all at a better sound quality, as well as the famous boxer rap and various boxer radio and songs he got played to him..

phil iron cross is still living where he did, cameras all over the house like he has a lot to hide..

radio at the moment is not the same, just half a dozen plebs that sit on 19 daily talking the same old crap..

on the website, I.E and all works ok, also if you use Chrome and install the I.E tab (plug-in) you can also play the streams and music..

the I.E plug in for firefox doesn't seem to work..

Think there was another thread floating around on here a fair while back I think re CB, my mum was heavily involved in cb radio, as being an elderly widow, it was her link to the outside world and she developed lots of new friends directly from her cb radio days.

She was in a club too and I'm sire they used to meet at Mapperley golf club sometimes

When I had to clear her house in 2005 she still had all the gear in a box in the spare room, shame but it all went in the skip !

The big aerial I put up for her was still attached to the back wall of the house though, as it was just too hard for me to get up there then to remove.

She also had a long wire antennae that someone had put up for her, and a shortwave receiver, which I did hang onto but later sold.

I still have my  handheld cb. A Harvard, with a 4ft telescopic aerial (although I always used the rubber duck) and it took 8 AA batteries plus 2 dummies!

Used to ride around Bilborough using it.

Nowadays I'd think twice of getting my mobile phone out around some of the streets!

it's all but dead now..

in Nottingham there's maybe half a dozen on the air..

Leon Pieces 

John the Bassman

some twat who sits on 19 sounding crap the new boxer we call him, Will.

Alison 

Keith Blowlamp

erm....

hmm, that's about it for nottingham

mansfield, derby has a few..

but nottingham...most have sold up or don't bother.

some have been driven off, others have gone to skype where they can talk openly without fear of being heard or keyed out.

 

if anyone was to come back on, don't expect to talk to anyone, unless there's a few of you setting back up as there's no one out there to hear you scream.

Hiya Chalky, just fell on this thread and it took me back a bit. Lived in Bulwell, 78 to 87, before we moved sarf. 

My handle for joke was "Dancing Dipole", we used to have little CB meetings on weds nights at the Nelson, on Sellars wood road. Also used " Guardian Angel" when being serious. Still got a Midland Ready Rescue and Harvard walkie t.
