Charlie Tango DX is a group dedicated to Hobby Radio Users in all forms, whether CB, Amateur, PMR446, Scanning and Short Wave Listening.
We are a very active and friendly group that welcomes anyone from anywhere in the world who has an interest in Radio, regardless of their level of experience, their equipment, their location, or their radio preference. We have members varying from fully qualified operators on the Amateur Bands, to newcomers who have just bought a PMR446 set, and many CBers both old and new. All are equal on the Site.

The CT Site contains many reviews, tips and modifications within the forums, and we take pride that no sensible question is ever left unanswered, and nobody is ever belittled or mocked for asking an honest question, no matter how simple it may seem. We were all new to the hobby once.

I'm steve( smig), 52 and live in Leeds

I have been around radio for many years. i started like most with the old AM days, then followed the FM and finally passed the M3, 2E0 and M0 some years ago.

I don't have any CB gear at the moment but i'm doing my research as to what would be a good radio to buy, any recommendations would be welcome :)

Could i request a callsign too please

Hi Steve,
Welcome to CT DX group.
I have issued you the call-sign : 26CT2639, good luck.
The Alinco DR135DX seems to be very reliable and popular, alas discontinued, but you may get a good used on somewhere.
The latest versions of the President Lincoln II PLUS appear to have ironed out the earlier faults, but they are very pricey tbh, and you would be better off using an expanded HF set (obviously I am not promoting the use of illegal equipment, just pointing out a fact).
There are the CRT SS 9900 & 7900 models available which are pretty good.
Other than that, the old-school radio's are still great. Something like a President Lincoln 1 is as good as anything you can buy, although they command decent prices now 100-120 seems to be about right.
