I've just come back to cb after 30 odd yrs I'm looking to do my ham course and was wondering what radio to get as a starter and on a buget and antenna.
I currently have a thunderpole T-800 & crt ss6900n.
Also any club nets in my area?

Many thanks 26-ct-3091.

Hi. Carpmark69

I use a Yeasu FT450d @ H/B & FT891 mobile. Both good for
Starting off in Ham radio. The 450 is run thro' a MFj atu & 3/4
Antenna's ie. Hygain AV18 80/10 which runs only 2ft agl. Sirio
SD27 for 10/11m. Inverted V for S/lows below T5. Several whips
for mobile op's ie. 10/11/20/40/80. & 3 Tankwhips which covers
28 down to 26 MHz. It all depends on your Qth. For 11m u most
Guys have to go uponthill because of Qrm @ Qth. If u have space
try a G5RV a good all round Ant for most situations & cheap.
Hope this helps. 73's Mike.
