It's been an interesting year, legalisation of AM/SSB after many years of campaigning which has brought a good number of new/returning users back to the airwaves.
There are more radios and accessories available now than ever before in the history of cb radio! Some good, some not so good! But certainly no shortage of choices!
Band conditions, whilst not the best, have still allowed some amazing contacts!
Here's to another interesting year of radio next year!
And a personal milestone - Just today I've reached 8 MILLION visitors across the Delboy Network(Websites/YouTube/Blog etc) - WOW! Thanks for visiting my various sites, I hope I can continue to provide information and entertainment in the future.
Who knows I may reach 10 MILLION visitors by next Xmas!!!!
GOOD NEWS: Amateur operators to get 470Khz and 5MHz as standard without the need for an N.O.V. BAD NEWS: Relaxation of how often callsigns are to be given! - Relaxing the need to identify your station will simply encourage illegal use of the bands and make Amateur Radio less distinctive from CB radio.
The radio shows that it is closely related to the President Lincoln 2 - SSB audio sounds a little overloaded at times (Improved by reducing the RF Gain a little). However the radio generally performs well with some excellent outgoing audio reports!
