Midland has made a big splash with the CBtalk APP. Everyone can download and use the CBtalk free of advertising and free of charge. If you own an Apple iPhone, you can also use the APP - use the CBtalk Apple Link.
And how does it work?
As you know it from CB radios. The look & feel is wonderfully implemented on the mobile phone screen. But of course this also offers a lot more and more fantastic options than the CB radios that you know from before. For example, in addition to the usual 40 channels with a range of 30 km (without DualMike) or up to 100 km (with DualMike), a so-called group mode was also implemented in which the range is worldwide. This mode has implemented 195 countries, 15 to over 40 channels per country, depending on the load (number of participants) of the country concerned.
It is therefore possible to 'radio' up to 30 km (100 km) in the 'normal' range - as with a CB radio via antenna, or to visit other countries in group mode and, for example, with radio friends in the USA, England or other countries spark. Why is? and why do we primarily focus on channel mode (channel mode = CH first switch left up)
It is about tracking down the CB radio feeling, using the advantages of getting to know people from the area in which we live. Anyone who uses CBtalk would like to talk and talk to people, and friendships that often last for years. Also, many who use CBtalk have met radio friends again, whom they haven't heard from in years.
