    Default CB radio / Scanners?

    Looking on ebay at general junk and came across CB's, didn't realize law changed regarding no longer needing a license and now getting AM on euro spec rigs over here making 80 channels? Does anyone still use em? (Was on years ago but got bored n sold up.) Then started looking at scanners,(had a handheld years ago) so thinking about getting either a rig set up or a scanner?Not looking at spending a fortune on either, would like to listen to CB's and airplanes mainly on scanner but no clue what to look for, what frequencies etc, any advice on either CB's / scanners would be cool, Thanks.

    I used to play with it all in the 80's, then I grew up, lol .. Used to have a totally illegal antenna, must have been 20 foot in length, and that was mounted way up ontop of an extremely long scaffold pole... Crikey, I cant remember all the rigs I used to have, the most fun was had with a LSB/USB rig, used to regularly have natters with folks in other countries... I was also using a 100w "burner" lol .. Had to be careful, neighbours would report they could hear me nattering when they used their video recorders???

    Got home from school one day, my Mum handed me a pink sheet of paper, DTI in big letters at the top with "Siezure Notice" below it, and hand written list of all my radio sttuff.. They had only gone and confiscated all my equipment, with notice to dismantle the antenna within 14 days... lol ... Fun days...
