The mk1 Lincoln is a cracking radio, Martin. 👍I still have mine, It just needs a bit of a service.

Cannot wait for the better conditions to come over the next few years. Really enjoy talking to the West Indian ops, always have a really good laugh with them. Used to get loads of contacts on 27.515 lsb.

Either working hard and no time for the radio, or having all the time and nothing of interest on the radio! Very Happy

I agree John, do like Martin's Midland, cracking rig Smile
I know what you mean, Victor. Many is the time, I have been up at my dx location and had to prise myself away to go to work, when conditions have been banging.

Yes John I love using my old Lincoln, I had Nick (Black Spirit) give it the once over last year and very surprised there wasn't much wrong , I  think there great radio ,would like to get the old Chip Switch  conversation done to it or whatever the modern version of that is ,so it can go down to 24mhz up to 30mhz and the other extras, I miss talking to the West Indian stations cos it use to be funny because I I originally come from Tottenham which has a big West Indian community there was always one station that knew about or knew someone from Tottenham when I spoke to any of them LOL

I need to get my Lincoln to Nick, he has done a fantastic job on some of my other radios. Small world as they say, Martin. It always fun, when someone knows somebody half way around the planet.👍

Nice to hear some of you guys have basic luxuries in your shacks Wink

I haven't long fitted a table top mini fridge and kettle in my radio room, great to have a cuppa whilst listening to the bands Smile
(Ssshh, I also have one of those USB cup warmers too - cuppa can go cold during a good QSO!)

Hope those studies are going well Alan. I still find myself checking 27Mhz first before popping on the other bands.

Always nice to have a shack with a few luxuries, Victor.👍😎

I use the burner as a foot/hand warmer. Being a mobile only station has its benefits, but being sat 500+ metres up in the peak district in the middle of winter is not one of them. Lol. Having to keep getting out of the motor to knock the ice off the antennas. Brrrrr.😁

Good on you for doing it though, ya mad fool! Very Happy



Here Martin, my missus is a massive Motown & Northern Soul girl 👍 
I get blasted out with it every so often so I repay the favour with my Rock music now and then Wink
Thing is, I met her as a motorcycle lad and now ride a scooter!?!  Shocked Jap cr*p but still a scooter. How did that happen? Very Happy


Oops, back on topic......ahem, 11m/CB/27MHz is still dead today Wink

Here where I am (Kerry), faint unreadable Italians coming in all afternoon on 27.555 USB. I'm fairly sure they're Italians because of all the whistling.

Sort of guessed with your avatar Martin, you old Mod you! Wink Very Happy

Thing is, love my scoot! Ridden every type of bike but love that scoot! Smile

1997 4HC YP250 Majesty, full rebuild, (by me), Light weight crank & stator, Polini clutch, J Costa drive, Dayco Kevlar drive belt. Goes like bl**dy stink!! Always takes the cagers by surprise at the lights. 
My missus loves her, (Maj), and happily pillions up. Been everywhere on her Smile

The best thing?....I couldn't ride a motorcycle after my disability, now I can put my fold-up walking stick under the seat, don my green flight jacket and black p*ss-pot and off I go! Always feel back to 'normal' on her. Puts a smile on my face, even though I had to learn to put my right leg down at the lights Very Happy

My Grandkids think it's so cool that their Grandparents ride such a thing!


God I'm a rubbish admin.....back on topic....11m, (I'm a Ham now and can call CB.... 11m Wink), was sure quiet today.
