Hello im a new member from Nottingham today. Name is Steve just getting back into cb after a absence of many years, i think it was back in the late 70s and finished about late 80s.
I still have my original Harrier cbx in the box in great condition, (glad i never sold it), and also just bought a ss 9900
things have changed a lot in some respects, people talk on 19, that would never have happened in the old days, but the music players are still around so some familiarity there
Anyway i would like to start the process of learning to take my amature license this time so need to find out what books to read
S i would like to be issued with a call sign if thats possible and look forward to enjoying this forum

Hi Stevie.
New myself here but you'll find everyone to be very helpful. Have a read around and explore the site. To get a callsign read the dedicated topic. The more you put into this group /forum, the more you will get out. They're a great bunch and go that extra mile to help old timers like me out. I'm very glad I came back to the hobby, and the Skip looks promising for the summer. Yes, much has changed from the old days but you'll soon pick it up again, oh and welcome back good buddy. cheers Stay safe.

hello yes its sort of good to be bac but no activity down here , back in the old days nearly every channel was being used but now its just static and the occasional theme tune from Thomas the Tank engine , which did make me laugh.
where do i find the dedicated topic to get the call sign

To get your callsign go to the homepage and it's the red post, (introductions) third one in the list I think. Read and follow the instructions.
I notice you're operating a SS 9900 so you shouldn't have any problems with getting reception but getting heard depends a lot on your Antenna, SWR and set up ect. When you're happy with that try the Triple - 27.555Mhz USB nearly always something on there if you have a flick around.

I have difficult operating conditions myself here in that I'm not allowed an external antenna so have to make do with a Dipole in the loft. For weeks I was disappointed and was going to give it up but I persevered and yesterday morning I was literally buzzing, I had my first overseas contact (using my recently awarded callsign - thanks Gary) - Bologna Italy, rapidly followed by South East France then Leipzig Germany. All on 8 watts. I nearly fell out of my chair with disbelief when they came back with my callsign as I reached for the pen & log book.
Hope this helps.
