Hi everyone, thought i would pop up a bio and let everyone know about me.

My names Martin, i recently bought a Vauxhall Vivaro as i am going to do a camper conversion, and thought i would add a CB to the van just for giggles, i used to dabble on my grandads rig way back in my early teens, and and caught the bug early on, however once out of my teens, i lost the bug and never keyed up a mike since.

Fast forward to Saturday just gone when i installed a little CRT One N along with a mini 30 mag to the van, i still need to SWR the antenna, however, and quite surprisingly, i am picking up lots of friendly banter on 19 whilst mobile around my home town of Pudsey. its amazing how shy i have suddenly become, after listening to 2 guys discussing Custard Creams on 19, i couldn't bring myself to break, just for a simple range check. Possibly because the other half was too busy laughing at the ongoing biscuit based discussion.

I was pretty sure i had blown 60 odd quid on an ornament for the dash, based on my assumption that CB was dead, but after this past couple of days, i am pleasantly surprised.
