Hi. Andy.

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
not all Newbies as Tom suggests. I've been involved in Radio since
'59 & on CB since '76. In 60's I was using separate Tx & Rx equip.
Marconi,Cossor,+others then Yaesu 101zd/707's. Good Dx. 73's

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.
