Hi Hamish,

Welcome to Charlie Tango.


If you do require a Charlie Tango callsign you only have to ask, but it also isn't a requirement so up to you.

I'm unaware of a 'newbie help section' as Martin, (Nubster), has mentioned but feel free to ask any questions you may have or browse through the forums past postings to glean further information. As suggested a search on the internet can bring you much information and places such as 'YouTube' has some great videos on the subjects of CB radio and other such.

Unfortunately Charlie Tango isn't manned 24/7 by it's members or even the voluntary admin so sometimes you may have to wait for answers to questions. We do however do our very best to help out where we can or point people in the right direction.

As regards anyone in your area, a brief search of the forum suggests many members reside there but we will have no idea if they are active on radio. The only real way of knowing is if you listen in on a radio or call out on air when you get setup.


All the best,
Victor

Ah, way back then Martin. Before my time mate Wink
(Don't get to say that often as an old git Very Happy)

As you say, shame it was lost in the mist of time but there's a plethora of info out there. Lot of work to set that all up anew let alone update and maintain it so we'll just have to keep answering questions. Like you say, we don't mind one bit Smile


You happily fire away with the questions Hamish, it's the only way we learn mate.


All the best lads.

Thanks for your replies. I have been googling away and found alot of information. Found it interesting about antennas and swr tests, from there I learnt a little about wave lengths... all stuff I hadn't a clue about.
I didn't want to jump straight in and be disillusioned and give up especially if there wasn't anyone within range. Going to Google Q and 10 codes tonight and maybe find some slang to use

Hello Hamish, 

It will be useful for you to learn the Q codes, but I wouldn't bother with the 10 codes, as they are no longer used on cb.👍

Hi Hamish,

I am over on the other side of Essex to you, but you being near the coast you should have good plenty of marine activity to rx in the area, Am I sure there's a few CB operators within 25miles of your qth.

Just remember once you have a mobile set up,  try and find a bit of high ground to help when you tx/rx.

 enjoy.
T.
