Midland Precision Series – A Retro Review

28/04/2004 Transmission1 13

Midland 7001 CB RadioProbably the most under-estimated series of radios produced in a distinctive colour. Back to the 80’s. This review was produced by Axle Jack in Australia.

Any UK CBer who has been into the hobby for a while will have seen the old Midland precision series sets. The 2001, 3001 and 4001 established themselves as major players on the UK CB scene right from legalisation day in 1981 and became some of the most popular sets available for many years afterwards. They have been superseded by newer, smaller, flashier Midlands and are not so commonly found now, but that’s no disgrace to them, as it’s been a long time since Midland stopped making them and they are still serving some faithful owners yet. (Anybody know exactly when they stopped being produced?).

A Tale of Two UHF CB Systems

30/11/2001 Transmission1 1

Remember 934 MHz? What happened in other countries? We look to Australia for the answers.

Way back in the mists of time, there was another CB frequency apart from 27MHz. The equipment was so expensive that few people had suitable radios and it was not used much at all. Many CBers may not even have been aware that 934MHz CB existed. You’ll notice I use the past tense, as 934 is now extinct. Killed off by, well, greed I suppose. Let me tell you all about it.
