Good morning tassie devil. I was also introduced into the world of CB's at an early age too, thanks to my dad, who is also a HAM operator btw.

You'll enjoy this site, it's laid back and family oriented for the most part... lost of good people on here.

see ya,
996 and I'm gone!

I had a buddy who lived down the street from me "Farmer Gregg" who is also a member on here has the 980. I think its of the best 11 meter SSB radios on the market for under $200.
