Welcome welcome

Here is another episode of Ray Reviews the South Coast/Monday Night PMR net

or

"Did you know, that on this date back in 1947 Radio Netherlands Worldwide started"

The net was held on April 15th 2024 and was chaired from Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌴 Forest in the county of East Sussex.
My working conditions were the CRT Space U and the almost, but not quite, famous £1 mag mount.
The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs, 8 o'clock 🕗 UK local or 19:00 UTC 🕖

If you are a regular reader of the net reviews, you will know that the weather at radio corner can be some what damp.
Well on this night, it was windy and bright with the half moon 🌓 and stars out.

Oh, I forgot to mention the hail stones!!

So at about 8 o'clock 🕗 the net started and for the first hour there was more stations parked in radio corner than any where else, making it difficult to do pass arounds and get things going.

Here is the list of stations heard and or worked by the net

Hello and welcome

Come on in and sit ya self down, and get ready for the next episode of Ray Reviews the South Coast/Monday Night PMR Net

or

"on this date in history, London bridge was sold to an American who moved it brick by brick to the USA (allegedly)"

My location for the night was a still, mild, cloudy Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌲 Forest in the county of East Sussex (JO-01-bb), where the full moon 🌕 was only visible for the briefest of moments.

The net can be found on analogue channel 14 using no CTCSS codes or malarkey like that, making the net accessible for all. You don't even have to have a callsign or handle.
To reduce the chance of channel splatter NFM is used.

My set up for the night was the CRT Space U, powered by a old car battery and the antenna was the Dean made, NOS French mobile PMR antenna up on a fibre glass pole.

The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗 , but tuning in early you could become part of the pre-net warm up waffle.

Here is my list of stations heard and or worked by the net

or

"Did you know that on this date in history, the telephone connection from Britain to Australia comes into service"

A brief introduction about the net and where on the dial it can be found.

The net is scheduled to start at 8 o'clock 🕗 in the evening local UK time or 20:00 Hrs and can be found on analogue channel 14 (446.16875 MHz). It doesn't use any kind of secret CTCSS tones and you don't need a callsign or handle to join in.

My location for the night was Radio Corner (JO-01-bb), Ashdown 🌳 Forest in the county of East Sussex and the set up was the CRT Space U and a antenna up on a fibre glass pole.

And for those who wonder about the weather, we had blue skies, a full sun ☀ set, a cool gentle breeze and birds 🦜🐥 tweeting 🎵🎵 while the sun went done.

Enough with the chatter and on with the list of stations heard and or worked by the net

Hello, is anybody there?

Welcome to another episode of Ray Reviews the South Coast/Monday Night/Channel 14 PMR Net

or

"the net with so many names, it's been diagnosed with DID"

The net was held on Bank Holiday Monday, the 6th of May 2024 and my location was Radio Corner (JO-01-bb), Ashdown 🌴 Forest in the county of East Sussex.

The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs 🕗 local UK time but does sometimes start later due to the shift pattern of the chairmen who run it. But never fear, if you call out before that time, you could be part of the pre-net waffle.

My set up was the CRT Space U powered by a car battery 🔋, and the French antenna up on a 13 metre military pneumatic mast.

The net can be found on analogue channel 14, no CTCSS tones or things need as it is open to all, you don't even need a callsign.

The weather on Radio Corner was damp and foggy, and this may have effected the signals during the night listening to the reports.

So with when, where and how's out the way, on with the list of stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net.

Thank you all who called in, as without you, there would be no net.
Sorry if you tried and wasn't heard, please try again another Monday night.

Here is a short, 4 minute video of the net


A top tip, try saying break break or QSK or even on the side when you want to join in.
As I don't know of any chair on any net that would call in somebody pressing the alarm button over and over again on their Baofeng UV5R 😄

Here are some of topics of conversation you would have heard while the net was on.
The Sunday Night Channel 8 Preppers net, classic cigarettes like Silk Cut, Senior Citizen, Camel, Players Navy Cut cigarettes & a mention of Henri Wintermans Panatellas cigars and a crazy idea of a one off joint activation of the Preppers Net and the South Coast net to see how much of the South East we could cover.

That's this episode of Ray reviews coming to an end

My location for the net, was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌳 Forest in the county of East Sussex and the set up was something a bit different. The CRT Space U was matched with the Graham OM 001) beam, the Paul (GB 23) mast and the John (CT 4515) Rotator (yeah I know, what a mix! 😃 LOL)

The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗 local UK time, but sometime if you tune in earlier you could become part of the pre-net warm chat.

The weather on at Radio Corner was mild, blue sky, high wispy cloud, some mist in the valley and the bonus of a sun set.

Hello, welcome, come on in.

Here is another episode of Ray Reviews the South Coast/Monday Night/Channel 14 PMR Net

or

"is this the longest running PMR net in the country?"

The net is on analogue channel 14 and uses no kind of CTCSS, DCS, scrambling or the "not privacy" tones and is scheduled to start about 20:00 Hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗 local UK time.

My location for the night was a busy jubilant Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌲 Forest in the county of East Sussex and my set up was the car battery 🔋 powered CRT Space U and the old trusty GPA antenna up on a fibre glass pole.

The weather was pleasant, warm and slightly overcast.

People often ask why the location is called Radio Corner.
Well, we had a visit from John CT 4515 and Tony CT 4015 who came up from Brighton, and while here John did some 20 metres work alongside PMR.
Toby was also in Radio Corner working 40 Metres with PMR, so there was lots activity.
