ive been thinking about this and we do need to have contact,

now mobile phones is a no no,

too hard and would cost too juch,

i thort about cheep walky talkys from toysRus or something lmao

but i realy reckon C.BS is the way foward,

that way we can have are own channel andall be able to keep in contac etc.....

also telling truckers what we are doing so we can get a HONK off them as we cruise past lol

sounds like a good plan :lol:

can you programme a channel specifically for theminiforum members?

CB radios are dirt cheap, just gotta know where to get one.

theres a second hand shop around my end which has one going, might buy it. 25 quid!

go here

CB Radio For Mini's

great shop, and the guy who owns it is really helpful. I bought the £109.99 package, but you can get a complete package much cheaper. Definitely buy an S.W.R meter, but I wouldn't bother with an external speaker. I bought one and it doesn't need it in my mini. Well it didn't with the old engine anyway, it may do with the new one. Only get one if you have a loud car.
