Hi All, After not using CB since AM days in the Southend area back in the late 70's when the US skip drowned out most of the band a lot of the time, I have finally bought myself an old-ish CRT Superstar 3900 as I had long wanted something multi-mode and finally won this unmolested example on that auction site.

There seems to be verrrrrrry little activity around Worthing as far as I can tell from a few days with the rig switched on the USB DX channel 12 27.555 but I am hoping that by joining up here I will find out a little more about where and when things happen!

I would also like to request a callsign please, not transmitting so far until I have some idea what I am doing and what the etiquette is these days, but I hope to learn a little more and get back on the air before too much longer!

73's,
Mark

Nice one Mark,

The Thursday "Southern SSB net" and the weekly "Eastbourne FM net" are two really active ones with great "net chairs" to get you back in to the hobby.

All the best 73's Gary.
