Oh, I can remember days when you HAD to have a CB license, I was so proud 
when my dad finally got all the answers filled out to the FCCs 
satisfaction, and KDL-3120 came on the air.. Then I went to boy scout camp 
and spotted a bunch of vertical and dipole antennae coming from a large 
tent out in the middle of nowhere.. When I announced myself as a CBer I was 
almost laughed out of the tent.. I was pretty upset until I heard my first 
ZR call and realized they were not talking to someone down the road a few 
miles.. Needless to say, I was hooked.. But all during the CB days the D104 
connected to the Eagle series radios (the ones that pinged at key-up) with 
a 100 watt amp were the kings of the hill, until the FCC caught them..
