  • "CB Radio", or the Citizens' Band radio service, began in the United States in 1945 and was regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It allocated a radio band for personal communication by citizens. In the late 1960's and 1970's, handheld technology for CB radios improved and use of CB radios became a popular fad.
