Hi,

I'm from Shrewsbury, Shropshire, I'm interested in radio, computing, videography, live streaming, and target/clay shooting.

I briefly tried CB in the early 1980s, once, but after joining the Royal Signals, and the Ambulance Service, and retiring, I became an SWL and then a Radio Amateur, I operated base, mobile and portable until I moved house in 2004, and then only mobile and portable until about 2011.  I've done RAYNET, NVIS HF, had an NoV for 5MHz before it became a general band, did Packet, APRS, SSTV, NBTV, ATV, HF Digital Modes, Doppler RADAR / Direction Finding, HF and VHF/UHF DX Competitions, encrypted Weather Satellites, dabbled in mostly everything, but not for 11 years, and never CB (weirdly).

Not sure what the restrictions are for Transceivers and Antennas for UKCB, but if there's activity I'm interested now as I'm rebuilding my shack.

Currently have a 20ft Lattice Tower erected, and am planning an Auto ATU fed NVIS Dipole for HF & Diamond V2000 6m/2m/70cm, which will have a computer controlled FT-847 running PC-ALE 24/7 at 10 Watts.  This will also be used outside of ALE which would be taken offline for Voice SSB/FM.

I also have 4m folded dipole which the FT-847 can drive for SSB/FM.

As RF based Packet Radio is dead in my area, I'm going to be putting up an NVIS dipole made from two 40m HF Mobile Whips, and try and see whether I can log in to the Packet BBS in London.

Other than that, I'm looking at a new Satellite Dish for re-establishing encrypted Weather Satellite Data 24/7 from EUMETSAT.

Then of course I'm also looking for advice on CB Base Transceivers, and an 11m Antenna, if there's any activity.

I still have my mobile VHF/UHF and a HF/6m/2m/70cm Transceivers, a 700 Watt Amplifier, and various handhelds, but a lot of these don't have tone or DCS generators, but will try and set one up for the local UHF Repeater GB3LH.

Some of the older Hams did start in CB, but I never did, so best I look at CB properly, and will want to Register for a CT Callsign.

Hi Steve,

It's all been gathering dust in boxes since I moved house in 2004, I forget everything I have here, was even looking at a new HF Transceiver for DX the other day, even though I have three already, wife was not looking happy.
