Hello and welcome, Stephen.

Gary will be along to issue you with a call-sign.

The Superstar 9900 is a good, modern multimode radio for dxing on cb. I have worked Larne a few times over the years on ground-wave on ssb from my dx location in Derbyshire. Really good take off, out to the west.👍

73s John.

Thanks for the reply. I seen Fred in the shed on u tube talking about the superstar radio's they seem to be a good radio. I looked at them on knights cb website. I see they give you the option to choose 10 meter 11 meter cb and 12 meter would you recommend all three or just the 11 meter cb. Thanks Stephen.

No worries, Stephen.👍 If the radio can be opened up for all three bands, I would go for that. Although you can only transmit on the cb band, it would be interesting to listen in to the 12 and 10m ham bands. Plus if you go for your license in the future, you will be able to use them.

That's great thanks for advice. CB will do for now. Would it be hard to get a license for ham radio l don't know a lot about it. Thanks again Stephen.
