Many years ago was working in London till 2014, since then moved back to Corfu Greece... Got a pair of Eurosonic es200 back & around 1995 (one of them is been lost ) & was using them few times when we was going weekends to few cottages just out of London (not so popular at least for me the mobiles at that time) Back in Greece luckily i have find one CB of them & last days start using it ... i am planning by end of this month to get an EU one unit (season ended out of job)
From the 4/11/22 until about 11/11/22 all day long (till sun go down) the UK band was full at Corfu ... i have heard with it many transmissions (even 2&3 persons chatting at a channel) in many cases even with the Eurosonic portable antenna stock
Channels 1,3,6,16,35 some kind of church with music or speaking religious (& also normal chat at different times) Channel 9 i did catch some one speaking saying breaking news & talk for some time like info
I have contact local Corfu DX club no email reply, i have contact pasixeracb Athens no email reply yet Once i am at the borders of Greece, Italians are coming often at CB Band ( & not only, at FM they covering the locals radios especially at north part) so ... MY request is for a Call Sign Please, it may help ... exact QTH area in my profile Many Thanks for your valuable time

Thanks A pni escord 6500 (to have and the EU Band) & a pni ml160 mobile car antenna is on the way by next week but will install it when are totally sunny days (last days are raining, not all day but it does every day) ... that was the best i could get for now (winter unemployed) to keep going and with the EU band...
Antenna will be in use with 10m rg58 (not the 4m stock) at roof mast adding (at ground screw where it holds the antenna) 3 small wires at 45 degree, similar to ground plane and see how will go (as advised by shop here in greece adding this extra 3 small ground wires should help)
I have 2 more questions please
1) for PMR here in greece, can i use the same cb call sing? 2) Is any international dx report, or just posting to EU/UK dx topic? so i can add info from time to time for catches from around UK & EU Thanks
