Hi all just new to the forum although been into the radio hobby many years off and on and now back on air after a while away from the hobby.. Started my radio affair in 1978 yes it seems like a lifetime ago but my memories are still fresh and started with a cobra 19x in dads vauxhall viva with a dv27 antenna as most did back then just nice and simple..
I progressed to a cobra 148gtldx and avanti sigma 2 and went though many hygain’s and others and eventually a ham jumbo came along with a bremi brl200 amp and thats where i was hooked on ssb dx making contacts all over europe..
Sadly life moved on i got married had kids and the rest is history but i could never get the radio hobby out of my life and being a truck driver usually had an ssb unit in the cab altho not allowed to have them now
So now im back although not many on around teeside area but there are the die hard types some of whom have been on since i was kid so really nice to catch up with old freinds again.
So thats my radio obsession story and if possible id like a charlie tango callsign as ive heard quite a lot of your members on sidebands and it would be great to be a part of your group

I hope you don't mind but I took the liberty of updating your profile for you.
(Can be a right pain if you're new to the forum but a few key clicks for me to do for you.)
You're all set and ready to go now to be allocated a callsign.
Our admin responsible for callsign allocation should be along any day now to get you issued.
All the best, Victor
