I have been on CB since 1979, I got through many rigs including the famous (and my favourite) Cobra 148 GTL DX, after a short break due to career moves & house moves, I eventually bit the bullet & took the HAM exam, I renewed my interest in CB a few years back & have used it alongside the HAM rigs.

, but I started CB life with a DV27 on a biscuit tin, then got through various Modulators & Firesticks while mobile, Home-base I updated to a GPA, then managed to get my hands on a Sigma 4, one of the best aerials I have owned up until recently.
More recently I have had co-linears for 6m, 2m & 70cm's, Yagi's for just about every band available, an SRC-X80 multi-band, but I currently use a Co-linear for 2m & 70cm's, & a Sirio Vector 4000
for 10m, 11m & 12m, I have a G5RV for all other bands, which I only put up when needed.
That's more than enough about me, I hope to catch you on the air soon, I am on Channel 35 London & Home Counties most nights, I often try to catch the skip on SSB during the day, time permitting. When nothing is happening on the '35' I will be scanning around looking for action. see you there 73's, 10-10...
