CB White Tornadow

I noticed a post from White Tornado on picture #4707,a ghost from the past. Here is the man himself with his wife dancing at a CB dance held in the Lynfield Hotel,September 83.
I think I'm correct in saying that Mike Foubister 'White Tornado' and Mr Laidlow introduced cb radios to Orkney.
Outrageously expensive it was too, a simple 40 chanel set in 1983 cost almost £100.00 and then the power supply another £20 to £40 . Someone was making a fortune at the time.

If anyone is wondering why picture 4707 is not available, I have it wrong, should be picture #4703

I remember the Orkney Air Force, (picture #4703) but what was the Big O Breakers Club. I have a note about a Big O football match in the Bignold on 27th June 1982. Alao, there was a do at the Barriers - possibly a barbecue. Anyone got any photos?
