TechRepublic members' first geeky gifts

First Geeky Gift: Cobra 29 CB Radio

One gift that defined member techr's childhood was a Cobra 29 series CB radio his dad and he received for Christmas. "Little Professor" could "DX" 20 miles from home barefoot with this.

I'm surprised that the 29 series is still for sale - new - today at places such as Amazon. I guess CB technology hasn't changed in 30 years.
