Welcome to the official Charlie Tango DX Group CB And Amateur Radio Forum. You are visiting the UK's biggest and most active CB Radio club.. We hope you enjoy your visit.

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.

You're currently viewing our forum as a guest. This means you are limited to certain areas of the board and there are some features you can't use. If you join Charlie Tango you'll be able to access member-only sections, and use member-only features such as customizing your profile, sending personal messages, voting in polls, viewing modifications and more.

If you are not yet a member: Registration is simple, fast, and completely free. Simply CLICK HERE to start the Registration process. Your application will need to include your personal name and approximate location, it will require you to confirm your email, and then be signed-off by one of our Admin Staff, but this is usually completed within 24 hours (48 max)

Nice one Fred and any CT plug is always appreciated :thumb:




Using a 11m prefix is so useful on a crowded international calling frequency such as 27.555 :pirate2:


Enjoyed the video :thumb:

Getting them to sign up isnt the issue looking at the amount of members here but it is keeping them interested in the hobby.

I had a look at the amount of CTers that are local enough for me to contact listed on the callsign page and there is quite a few infact over a hundred but the amount i have worked or even heard in the last year or so can be counted on both hands.

Where are they all?

I dont want to get into the "is CB dying debate" here and the nets prove there are many who are active but with over 7000 members and just 100 or so who contribute to the forum i wonder why they join..BUT i will say well done to you Fred and all the others who regularly promote CT and the hobby (you know who you are) :clap:

I have big admiration for all building up & keeping this hobby alive, dont just turn on and listen, turn on and give a big call out, youd be surprised with what you might receive back.

Scanners for listening, CBs for whistling (shout out and be heard)

Nice one Fred. Up here in N.E.Scotland, we seem to be very thin on the ground but since the localised net has been set up we are getting an increase in operators wanting to join in. Maybe nets are the way forward.

Well done Fred, any promotion is good. Like Reclaimer above we seem to be very thin in the South West of England and I agree perhaps local nets are the way to go. I'm always listening out for new CB Operators down here so give me a shout if you can! :clap:

Sorry guys but, you need to address the sign up problems people are having.
That in itself, dont install any confidence with any website, and will only drive them away to other sites/callsigns etc.

Been going on since i signed up few months back now, and still is, according to people "trying" to sign up latley. They getting some "socket" problems
showing up, preventing them from going further in the sign up process.
And most, if they cant sign up there n then, will not be bothered trying to contact admin, for them to set up manual account.

You have to address this problem quick guys, or you gonna lose more n more potential sign ups

Sorry if it to blunt for you, but it has to be brought up and addressed if you want this forum to advance/grow....
Dont address it, and forum will stagnate, with lack if interest / posts / new people etc

Its a good forum as well....

Concidering the forum has been going since 2008 I don't think it will have any problems with it not growing and never will, could you explain what do you mean by "socket problems" please, as the only time I've used a socket is when working on engines.

We have had a few new members having issues with registering, and also with password resets.

It is not anything 'we' as staff can do anything about, as we don't code the forum.
The issues have been raised as technical enquiries with the forum hosts, and are being looked into, sorry that's about as much as any of us know at the moment.
Will keep you updated as we hear something back from Zetaboards.
