Hi my name is Stevie, I live in Tipperary Town in Ireland, I first got into CBs in the late 80s. My first radio was a Sharp 40 channel, ran this off an old car battery & had a DV 27 attached to the guttering. I was hooked from the get go. I even managed to reach & get a contact in Co Durham, all from a seemingly impossible radio set up. I would like to get a call sign. 
Best regards 
Stevie 👍

Hi Stevie,

Welcome to Charlie Tango.


Great story of your first days in CB, I think many of us started in a similar way and amazing how well such a humble setup could perform! Smile

Call signs are usually issued most days so you shouldn't have to wait too long.

I hear that it's a long way to Tipperary?
(Groan, I know but couldn't resist. That's why I'm an admin here and not a comedian! Wink)


All the best,
Victor

PostSubject: How I became obsessed with CB    New member (Issued) Icon_minitimeSat Apr 17, 2021 6:44 am

Hi, my name is Stevie, I became interested in CB in the late 80s, my first radio was a Sharp 40 channel. I ran this set off of an old car battery& had the radio connected to a DV 27 antenna, 
I managed, I don't really know how, managed to get a contact in Co Durham UK, 
It seemed impossible, but I did happen, I was hooked from then on. 
I would like a Charlie Tango call sign

Thank you, victor, 
I know all the stars must've lined up for me on that particular DX event. 
I even managed to get a QSL card sent to me by the radio operator  was speaking to, 
I don't know where it is now, so many years have passed. 
I am still very keenly interested in CB & I love to hear the skip roll in during the summer. 
I have a humble President teddy 1 in my jeep for close contacts, & have recently set up a Facebook page, it's called "CB revival, " it's just to see if I can get more past n present hobbyists back into CB
our little group is growing momentum, slowly but surely, 
I'm hoping this year, to set up another Home base, maybe Antron 99 & CRT, 6900 N, operating the 11m band & listening to the 10 m band. 
I know & enjoy a bit of leg pulling & having a laugh also 😆👍

Always great to have a chat and banter with a new member Stevie, the words of thanks go a long way.  New member (Issued) 1f44d

Enjoy your call sign and radio. You never know, a good bit of skip and you could be chatting to anyone of us across that small hop of water! Smile

All the best to you there in Ireland.

Welcome Stevie, my apologies for Victors “Joke” lol. My beautiful Grandmother was a Tipperary girl, and never tired of telling us, lol. Good luck with the Callsign my friend.

Wouldn't it be fantastic if we got skip coming in from the UK,  YUP. never know anything is possible, I will definitely be listening out for Charlie Tango call signs during this coming skip cycle. Always a pleasure to speak with you & fellow CBrs, I hope to get more guys back on CB here in my home town.
