Tim Moose Bruce… Breaker one four. This is Spiny Norman.

Josie Lawson… Hello Spiny Norman.Dont remember name.Do you remember mine from way back?

Tim Moose Bruce… I was on am from 81 to 85. My handle, Spiny Norman went on to be my nickname.

Josie Lawson… Tim Moose Bruce My handle was as I mentioned in the paper article. When I moved back to Hastings where I was born the computer took over. I have always been a communicater but hardly ever face to face except for the occasional times. I suppose that’s why I write. But I do miss my open ‘mic’ poetry readings. Even then I was shy…I tended to look above the heads. Was given this advice from someone else.Did you ever have a shoulder CB..tended to be used for 10.33 times

Tim Moose Bruce…  I wanted a handheld rig but never got around to getting one. Had a Jaws 2 AM rig. Quite compact and a pa socket which got me in trouble with police a couple of times with the pa speaker under the car bonnet!

Josie Lawson…. Tim Moose Bruce I can remember a gigantic aerial on the side of my house. We used to go up on Ditchling Beacon to have meet ups… Here is a picture of me up there one day with the handheld CB on my shoulder

Josie Lawson… Ah! I wasn’t in AM -I was in FM

Dave Nattress… For a few years from about 1980 living in Bexhill but travelling every mile of every motorway in the UK with my job, week after week, just about everywhere, the CB radio a friend suggested I put in the cars of the time, was great fun.  It might only have had a range of 10 miles or so, but great entertainment, left on the trucker’s channel – 19 was it?  Also, one did get warnings of where accidents and bears were.  Great fun. There were some amazing characters broadcasting, really helped the journeys along.
