I am pleased to announce that my CB setup is now on air, well sort of. The on-glass antenna I bought as a temporary antenna is working however there are some minor VSWR issues to address.
Last night was the first use of my desk mic and home made speaker, my girlfriend sat in the shack while I went out with the handheld CB, results were good. Today we tried in opposite places, audio from my speaker was good.
Once I have ironed out the VSWR issues, or got my inverted v antenna up, whichever happens first, I will be found on UK7, but for now I am on midband channel 1.
Those of you viewing the ShackCam will have seen the setup working this morning.
Be back soon with more, and if the skip conditions are right you should hear me on air soon
