Ask 100 Hams if they have ever been on CB --- 50% will fess up -- and the

I've never been on cb. I've listened there, but never transmitted.

You seem to toss that CB jargon around pretty well, Larry. Don't tell
me...no, it couldn't be...could it?

John:

Yep, it is true! I was once a CB'er, for a whole six months! I was the
Asst. Mgr. of the Radio Shack store in Depew, NY at the time, and I gave
myself a 30% discount on a Realistic TRC-23 CB transceiver -- the top-of-
the-line AM CB rig at the time in the era just before 40 channels. I
installed it in my 1972 Dodge Colt with a 102" whip antenna, and actually
got a lot of use out of it when travelling between the area R/S stores on
stock transfer missions and going to/from the repair shop in Buffalo.
When I quit the job at Radio Shack and joined the Air Force, that was
the end of my brilliant career as a CB'er!

We should have known ... "Radio Shack, you've got questions, we're
clueless,"
I'm sure Larry fit in quite well.

Carl:

Actually, I did fit into Radio Shack very well. I had a great time working
there,
was actually able to meet my sales quotas and make some real money, and
I had a lot of customers who would come into the store and ask for me by
name since I had a reputation for knowing what I was talking about and I was
willing to provide some actual customer service beyond taking money and
handing out receipts. I helped many customers with auto stereo and CB
installations, I did minor repairs in-store, and I'd drive all over Buffalo
doing
stock transfers in order to get customers things that my store didn't have
on hand at the time. I would have ultimately been a store manager if I had
not joined the Air Force at the urging of my best friend Fran, N2HMG.

Radio shack was a great place for a young person interested in electronics
to work in the early '70's. Today's R/S employees are nothing like us "old
timers" used to be. Today, I go into a R/S store and ask them about a
pay-as-you-go cell phone plan that they have mentioned on their own
store displays, and they don't know anything about it! Nothing technical,
just a matter of knowing the specifics of the plan! Sheez! My brother Tom
told me one of the best stories about current R/S cluelessness: He
went in to his local store and asked for a particular Operational Amplifier.
The salesfreak indignantly replied, "All of our amplifiers work, Sir!"

Ain't this just tooooo precious. Both DICK Carrol and Larry ROLL
turn out to be refugees from the CB channels.

Of course, they *act* like it too.

That is true, and it is often reflected in the things people
say when they try to insult others. Both of them have a pretty
stock set of insults, which clearly are based on what they
understand about themselves, but are gratuitously thrown at
anyone who disagrees with them.

One of the funniest parts of reading the newsgroups related to
Amateur Radio, is watching Len Anderson eat these jerks for
breakfast every morning as a form of cheap entertainment. Not
that everything he says is great and exactly correct, but he
just does it for fun, and he does run circles around them.
