Like yourself, I had a break of nearly 40 years before returning back to the rigs.
The guys on here are very knowledgeable and steered me in the right direction of what equipment to look at....and i looked at a lot.
As Mudslinger says, the Anytone 6666 and the CRT SS9900 are the same 10m radio under a different brand name.
It may be helpful for the guys before they give advice on what radio they suggest if they had more of an idea on what you are looking to achieve?
Local copies, DX'ing, home based or mobile etc.
