Hi my name is Andy and my QTH is Helensburgh in Scotland, I started on CB radio late 70's through the 80's down in Essex. I completed the basic 2Meters ametures back then. I have been involved in electrical & electronics repairs since  and a back ground in industrial maintenance all my working life, I took early retirement four years ago and want to get back on air again. I would like to request a CT call sign please. Very Happy

Hi Andy,

Welcome to Charlie Tango.

Gary should be along fairly soon to issue you a callsign.

I'm pretty sure, (but might be wrong), that your old 'Part B' VHF/UHF licence could be validated for current use with the HF privilages that foundation licensees now have(?) Might be worth finding out.

Welcome back to radio Andy. I too came back after a 40 year layoff, had to re-learn the whole thing again and loads more besides. That's where this forum come in, the guys on here are very helpful. 
Enjoy the wonderful hobby of radio. 
Cheers

Welcome back to the airwaves it's good to see more operators in Scotland returning as it can be a little quiet at times I find.
Many of us gave a similar story coming back after a break of several decades looking to indulge in some of that old radio magic again.

Hope to catch you on sometime.
