Daft Question


Could someone tell me what the 'Super Bowl' operators are, on 11m?, I have heard this being referred to a number of times but not exactly sure what "The Superbowl stations" is referring too.

Re: Daft Question


The Superbowl is on 27025 AM, its an american CB craze, where the operators use mega, and I mean mega, antennas and power. When theres even the faintest of propagation you can hear them, although you've no chance at all of working any of them.

They have CB handles and a weird way of talking, and the only point of it all is to be the strongest station on the frequency. They use 20-30kw linears and stacked eight element quads, all for use on one frequency emoticon

A "Mud Duck" is a low(er) power station emoticon

Re: Daft Question


They are a pain really as they add dramatically to the background noise, the're only plus is they can be used to hunt for propagation but if its up they cause loads of white noise.
Sort of Donkey stations of CB I suppose.

Re: Daft Question


Superbowl, lol,

all that money being spent on towers, antenna's and amplifiers, and for what?

Why don't they just all meet up at someones house and see who can piss the highest up a wall? Same retarded mentality, but a lot cheaper emoticon

Re: Daft Question


I would find it unlikely any of them mobile super bowlers are actually emmitting the power they say.

They would probably melt their car tires to the road...!

Up on the hill gettin down and clear, we gone..
