New application


Hi there.

A newbie - spent many years as a kid on the CB, then as most do, left it alone until 20 odd years later. Came back in 2012 until 2015, then unfortunately a messy break up saw me disappear until now. New home, new start and hopefully a new callsign (applied for). AT5555 survived the Ex Mrs ...bugger all else did - so i'm building a Dipole for the loft and a PSU is being delivered today from Knights, so hopefully on air tonight the 21st April 2020.

Any way - just saying hello from (still pending) 26 FM 1013 Matt.

cheers all.

I feel your pain. Been there. Done that. All the 11m gear was thrown out on me :-(

Kept my FT101B though :-)

Re: New application


Welcome back to the airwaves!

I got out of the hobby for over 20 years too, but for other reasons (mainly just kind of lost interest). And now, with COVID and staying home, I can't really go to remote locations to do any "fun" stuff, so I have to be a "legal eagle" for a while (no naughty business from the home QTH!).

What a long strange trip it's been.

Re: New application


I was so glad I rescued the FT101B from the ex’s “Purge”.

Welcome back.

Everywhere I’m reading, the Icom 7300 is making almost every other radio irrelevant. Not one real complaint, just the usual moaning over menus, but once you’ve set your presets, you’re sweet.

It’s on the bucket list

That said, I still love my knobs :-)

Hope to hear you on the air soon
