Welcome to CT group. If u need any help or advice just post in the
relevant section. They're a good bunch of Guys on here. P.s we're

Hello Andy,

Glad you are enjoying the hobby and getting some contacts. Things have changed over the years, but I'm sure you will quickly get into the swing of things.

73s John.
