The Cobra

In 1980 I purchased the first of what would be dozens of CB radios over then years. It’d be great to have all those radios back with me! Some were exotic radios from other countries that worked on our FCC allocated CB Band but had many more frequencies available due to not being built for the U.S. market.

Which is why they are so cool! I’ve been a licensed Ham Radio licensee for decades.

The CB radio hobby is what brought me into the Amateur Radio community of which I’m sort of active with here in Las Vegas. That said, I grabbed a quick snapshot of the radio’s (a new cb I just bought) front end the other day.

I thought why not mess with this boring shot, see what can be done? What you see is what you get! I rarely use these, there’s nobody to talk to! This is a PNG file and was left a bit large on purpose, sorry if it’s slow to pull down.

Wavy Bug

Earlier today I noted the little bulb over my stove had kicked the bucket. While pulling the bulb from the tiny socket, this little crispy guy fell out. No worries, he won’t be added to my Spice selection… I dropped it on top my garbo can and grabbed a shot.

I used Symmetry to make it look different, maybe less dead… Thank you for the photo op, bone boy! Your about to be broadcast globally. A pretty shitty photo really but… 😜
