Name : Dave
New/Old member : Joined ? when I first signed up, moved to new forum so showing as a new member.
I have been on CB since 1979, I got through many rigs including the famous (and my favourite) Cobra 148 GTL DX, after a short break due to career moves & house moves, I eventually bit the bullet & took the HAM exam, I renewed my interest in CB a few years back & have used it alongside the HAM rigs.
My current CB rigs are :-
1) Midland 42 Handheld with car kit.
2) Intek 490+ mobile/home-base.
3) CRT Superstar 9900.

Some of my HAM radio's are :-
1) Yaesu VX8ge APRS 2m, 70cm, Handheld.
2) Yaesu FT2de APRS, C4FM, Wires X, Fusion 2m, 70cm, Handheld.
3) Icom ID51e Dstar, DPRS, 2m, 70cm, Handheld.
4) Anytone AT-D868UV DMR 2m, 70cm, Handheld (1).
5) Anytone AT-D868UV DMR 2m, 70cm, Handheld (2).
6) Inrico T320 Network Radio 2g,3g,4g Handheld.
7) Baofeng UV5r 2m, 70cm, Handheld.
Cool Yaesu FT857d All band, All mode, Mobile/home-base.
9) Icom ID5100e Dstar, DPRS, 2m, 70cm, Mobile/home-base.
10) Wouxun KGUV950P Quad-band 10m, 6m, 2m, 70cm, Mobile/home-base.

Antennae :-
So many I forget most of them  Rolling Eyes , but I started CB life with a DV27 on a biscuit tin, then got through various Modulators & Firesticks while mobile, Home-base I updated to a GPA, then managed to get my hands on a Sigma 4, one of the best aerials I have owned up until recently.
More recently I have had co-linears for 6m, 2m & 70cm's, Yagi's for just about every band available, an SRC-X80 multi-band, but I currently use a Co-linear for 2m & 70cm's, & a Sirio Vector 4000  Very Happy  for 10m, 11m & 12m, I have a G5RV for all other bands, which I only put up when needed.

That's more than enough about me, I hope to catch you on the air soon, I am on Channel 35 London & Home Counties most nights, I often try to catch the skip on SSB during the day, time permitting.  When nothing is happening on the '35' I will be scanning around looking for action. see you there 73's, 10-10...
