Hello to all.
My 1966 Series 2a Marshall bodied Ambulance (ex-RAF), has a brand new President Johnson II rig with Orbitor mounted onto the military bumper. Lovely.

I am having groundplane issues at the moment, but I am sure I will work it out.

Radio now changed, Maycom EM-27 fitted, Maxon CM10 soon to be fitted to '99 Daihatsu Fourtrak 2.8 TDX, antenna (more that likely "stinger" type thats on its way) and mount yet to be decided

2nd Gen Toyota Surf 3.0 here as daily driver, for laning and as a tug for the caravan and a Suzuki SJ413 with loads of mods for P&P days. Should hopefully have the CB in the Surf in a day or two, plus my Alinco DX70TH Ham Radio rig for Top Band to 6M, in a couple of weeks - once it has been repaired. If you hear me on while passing through Bedfordshire on the M1, give me a shout.

10-10 or 73, whichever you prefer. :D
