Hi Gary. 
I've just bought a CRT SS 9900 radio with a sirio 4000 aerial.
Apparently sideband is the way to go.
I haven't set up yet as I've had issues with home life that come first. 
But YouTube has some good advice.
Try "Fred in the shed" for instance.
And I'm in North Wales along with others in Ireland and Wales so we could possibly set up a net.


The CRT 6900 looks a good buy.
