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.Post ID: 291, posted by jase at 07:10 AM
