Hi. 
My name is Neil. 
I first started with a cb in the very early 80s. Then when I passed my hgv in 91, I had them in my lorries till 2012. Now that I'm at home all day after my motorbike accident in 2012, I've decided to set up in my summerhouse. I have just purchased a crt 6900n and a sirio 827 antenna. I'm based in Notts / Derby's border. 
I'm looking forward to hearing from you regarding tips and set up of my rig.
Cheers

Hi Neil and welcome.
Wow time flies, I think I passed my HGV in 1988. Unfortunately I didn't get a CB (after being on air am/fm early eighties) but remember some other lads having them in their cabs.
I didn't last long driving either as I decided it wasn't for me. Although having the license did come in handy over the years.

Come to think of it, I did my motorbike license 12 or so years ago but haven't ridden for four years at least 🙄
Mind you I know so many like yourself that have had accidents on two wheels, maybe it's for the best.
Where are you mounting the Sirio Neil?
I've a gainmaster sat in my shed since last August and should of listened to Victor's advice and just stuck it up any old how for now 👍🏼😁

Good luck .

PS,. 11 metres 👍🏼

Hi, good to hear from you, Sharpshooter.
Yes, time does fly.
I have the sirio 827 mounted on a S aerial post on the side of the summerhouse/man cave, I don't think that I would get it on the side of the chimney!
I have spoken to a local(ish) guy and he said "I booming out" Crystal clear and bending his needle and BBC clarity, I'm happy with that.
I have not been assigned a call sign yet! Will the send me one anytime? I guess I need to learn the lingo too, I think there's a lot to learn, not like the old day.. Lol.
I have sent pics of my set up.

I'm taking it to Knights one day next week to have them installed for a tenner.

Hello Neil, welcome to the forum and back to the hobby.

We don't send out call signs automatically they are issued here on the forum upon request.

I can issue you one no problem but you will need to enter your specific QTH (nearest town or city) in your profile.

Best 73's Gary.
