Hello, thank you very much for letting me join your forum🙂
My name is Melvyn and Im from Canterbury kent, When CB was first happening in the early 80’s in the UK I was seriously into it, I was probably only about 12 or so then but absolutely loved it, when my parents moved it got packed away and forgotten about, every so often I would come across it and plug it in throughout the years with an old dv27 Ariel on an aluminium ground plane in my bedroom (as my parents moved a lot) but no one much seemed to be on!  Fast forward a couple or so decades and Kate and I were putting the Christmas decorations away and I spotted an old box with cb’s written on it, I dusted it off and plugged them back in and have been on it ever since, there’s a lot more people on here now, we copied 5 people from Northern Ireland one after the other the other night on the UK 40 reaching them at 60+ dB which absolutely amazed me and another from Germany which I couldn’t believe,  So now I’m back and loving every minute of it!!!!!   Please could I have a Charlie tango call sign as I can’t wait to see if I can get further afield when the skips rolling in😃😃😃
Thank you very much, Melvyn
