Hello From Swansea

Post by MW0SWA » 04 Aug 2012, 15:19

just came across this forum after searching for 2 minutes for the best looking radio forum to join.
Im 28 years old and interested in CB, Scanning and Shortwave radio.
I have just returned to the hobby after a good few years. And hoping to pick up where i left off. I have a keen interest in amateur radio and will be learning/studying as much as i can to get licensed and set up a amateur station of my own.

For now though i am keen on shortwave radio and scanning. I have set up all my gear in the spare bedroom and can't wait to get stuck in.

My equipment im using is.

Realistic DX 394, and an old Steepletone MBR7 Multiband for my Shortwave Radio listening,
Realisitic pro-2042 Homebase for my Scanning,
Midland 48 Excel CB.

I have also found these scanner Apps on my iphone that seriously kick ass. but i can see how it is taking the fun away from the hobby of searching and scanning things for yourself.

Hope you all have a good weekend.
