Range was drasticly lower than normal length. In some cases you got more range from 27 mhz.
27 was standard in UK for many years until we got 35 allocated.

27 was OUT OF SIGHT range as was 35 ... our problem was the CB guys when they fitted boosters to their sets. CB band was in the upper 27 part of our model band ... so as long as you stuck with the lower 27 freq's - you were ok ... EXCEPT when some idiot decided to switch in his booster on his CB set .... they were so 'dirty' they literally wiped out entire widths of 27 !
