    Hi All,

    After having a few years away from my radio I am back on VHF / UHF and find myself wondering if we should re-new the forum domain and maybe get rid of the adverts!.

    What do you all think?

    Hello All,

    My name is John and I have been a radio enthusiast for some time. After a while away from the hobby I have recently returned to VHF and UHF.
    I have several radios but am most active as a 3m WFM listener with a Sony XDR-S10HDiP and 4 element yagis beamed SE from Norfolk for Ned/Bel/Fra/Ger.

    Have recently become active on 23cm for the first time and returned to 70cm after a long absence.

    I am also looking for random chat or dx on 67cm (PMR446), so would be interested if there is anyone else in the Norwich area active on that band.

    Best wishes,...

    Hi everyone, I've been interested in radio since as a teenager, I discovered that I could talk to my friends on FM using a simple home-brew transmitter and a PP3 battery, rather than powering the calculator.... and it was much more fun too! Well over the years I've monitored and scanned a lot of stuff; the early un-encripted mobiles were a real blast! I had a CB in my car from the mid-80's to mid-90's when commuting daily from Kent to London daily and was part of the "Two-Seven Breakers" (an early version of TrafficMate on CB), also great fun. I've played around with PMR and am thinking of setting...

    Hello from East Dorset. Licensed since May 1983 but then let it lapsed. Briefly went 70cms in '96 but again let it lapsed. Looking to get back on mainly 10m for now but would like to get back to low power CW.

    I know the hobby has changed a huge amount. I used to love building powerful PSUs from old computer power supplies but those days have gone I suppose.

    Looking forward to a chat.

    Hi all,

    My name is Bill and Just got back onto the cb with my old midland 77-099 and getting a few contacts. Thinking of foundation for amateur licence, but funds and time mean that will prob have to wait till next summer.

    Have been looking at some new cb sets with the multi stuff, is it worth getting one, or should I just stick to the uk 40?

    What do you all think of the new cept for Oct, will it be implemented in the UK?

    BTW I'm in deepest darkest south Shropshire, havn't got a cb handle (might think of one oneday

    Hello everyone.
    I'm a long time CB'er, not active for a number of years, but hoping to dust off a few of my radios and get active. Also looking for a general purpose handheld scanner to take with us on our journeys around the UK. Seriously thinking it's time to get to grips with the RSGB tests.... (Do I really have time though in my retirement years?)
    A great site by the way that I hope to spend time on.
    Hope to hear you on air soon.

    I'm active on HF and VHF and sometimes UHF (70cm only) but UHF ops are very rare. Member of RSGB, UKSMG and BARTG. Radio related interests include Satellite ops, Data, SOTA and contesting and have entered a few contests on VHF and HF as a learning exercise but looking to enter with more gusto next year. Mostly active at weekends...

    Hello my names Daniel from Grimsby. I have just joined this group because i want to learn about this hobby.
    I have a scanner and a Hf set which i use for monitoring air traffic but am becoming increasingly interested in the ham side of the hobby. I would like to join my local club however unfortunately i work when they meet. I hope this wont hamper my taking the foundation licence if i decide too.
    Quick question. What sort of frequencies are best to listen to to hear some chatter? I've tried listening into the local cb frequencies but hear very little.
    Cheers Daniel
