Dictionary.com says...

–noun 1. Citizens Band Radio Slang. the operator of a CB radio; fellow operator (often used as a form of direct address while broadcasting).

2. Informal. a trusted companion or colleague; friend.

Yeah CB, I had a Yaseu FT-747 with a wire cut to cover 1.5 to 30 MHz. It was modified for use as a test RF source although I did put it on CB one day to talk to some CB good buddies I was camping with. Those CBers sure know how to party!

And a hearty Hi to my good buddy K9FON

I don't know the current vocabulary on ham fon[e], being that I have not worked it for 30+ years, but on CW we say things such as FB OM (fine business old man), or FB OB and generally converse in a 1920's archaic kind of way. QSL, QRM, QSB, and it's 73, not 73's.  

And that HI HI is really sent as HEE HEE. I believe this is a left over from rail road telegraphy (American Morse) where it was HO HO, sent as .... . .
  .... .  .


In American Morse an O is sent like two E's

But of course you proably know this, CB, being a ham yourself.

73 OM

...HAMS say QSL in stead a 10 4.

That is how you can recognize an ex-CB'er.

Using Hi HI and Fine buisness on phone is the ultimate in dorky hammie talk. I avoid it. Keep that crap on the CW subbands.
I mean, would you walk up to someone in person and instead of laughing at a joke just say "HI HI"?

Whaa da you do when you just have a big grin on your face?

Hams have a way to convey that by saying HI HI.

One could imagine that if in ya are grumpy and frowning, you could say LOW LOW?

Hi Hi
