Internet CB network

I've just stumbled over the ICB network, which is kind of like IRC but less well known even though it has been around for some time. There are various clients for a multitude of operating systems. A popular Windows based client is Win/ICB.

Since this was called Internet CB, I thought it would be some sort of audio communication. Not at all, it's text based.

Sounds, good (excuse the pun) so will probably check it out. Since I've been interested in radio for years when I saw CB I thought - interesting! I've not been on the real CB for ages, so will have to check it out again at some point. I've got a load of radio equipment sitting around not doing much at the moment.

I'm also a licensed amateur radio user, but I don't really use it much. I got my license when I was 16, but was using CB for years before that. I've not played around with the radio stuff much lately, as I've been off doing other things. There are a lot of things to play around with on the radio waves - packet radio, SSTV, repeaters, RTTY and more.

Radio is one of those things that I check out every once in a while but will probably play about more in the future.

I just searched to Steve Lawler on Google, and look what I found - the 'infamous' Blog we were talking about only 2 days ago! :oD At least I hope this is the Jase Im thinking of anyway...

lol, how strange - yes you found it - I'm wondering why a search for Lawler would bring up this post though! Oh dear, the thought of you reading this blog, I had better behave now. Ok, well... most things I wouldn't be talking about here anyway, you never know who might read it :P
With hits from NASA and various other national and international agencies and governments, I can't let them know what I know ;)
