My name is Graham from Bolton, Lancashire. I’ve been absent from CB for about 35 years and decided to give it another go due to early retirement. I started out on AM CB and then later on legal FM CB and also did a bit of police scanning and earwigging on a Yaesu FRG7700. I then moved on to PMR446 years later and I now own a Yaesu FT60R and a few Baofeng UV5R’s, which leads me to where I am now. I’ve just bought a new CRT SS9900 and a Thunderpole Excalibur with a used SkyTronic 10A-12A power supply just to get me up and running and to get my interest back. I’m now looking forward to buying a decent SWR/Power meter and having a play with some home made dipoles.
I would also like a Charlie Tango call sign if anyone can point me in the right direction of the call sign list please? I understand there are a few problems with new call signs at the moment but do you chose one from a list or are you just allocated one? Would it be possible to request CT5866?
Many thanks in advance.

Hello Graham, welcome to the forum, nice introduction buddy! Unfortunately call signs are still on hold following a change forum of host, as soon as it's sorted you will be issued one.
