Hi Everyone.

Just returned to the hobby after a 30 year break.  Can't believe how much things have moved on. And, to be honest, I'm a bit out of my depth.  Was used to analogue scanning and CB'ing.  A lot of the interesting stuff to listen to seems to have gone digital.  On my retirement I decided to treat myself to a couple of up-to-date receivers.  Bl**dy-'el.  My eyes are watering trying to get my head around SDR.  It's a different language to me.  Object Orientated Scanning, Talk Groups, Time Slots, etc.  I guess what I'm looking for here is some help.

I bought a Whistler TRX1 for general use and a HackRF1 + PortaPack for use with SDR# on the computer.
I'm OK with the basics, but at a total loss with the programming side of things.  Would be grateful to hear from anyone who might be of assistance with these things before I reach for the sledge-hammer!!!

Regards, Zodian (Ant)

Hello Ant,

Welcome to the forum and back to the hobby.

You can post your specific questions in the relevant sections of the forum and we'll do our best to answer them for you. Things have indeed moved on a lot!!!!

If you are planning on transmitting on C.B. or PMR and would like a C.T. call sign let me know and I'll allocate one to you.

Best 73's Gary.

C.T. Admin.

Hi all, and thanks for the warm welcome. I am planning to transmit now that I've been informed that it's okay to use the 27mhz slot legally. Had my eye on a sideband unit so will take the plunge, and will also fire-up the 446.

Gary, please could you allocate me a C.T. call sign. I would be most grateful.

Regards, Ant.
