Hello and welcome

Here is my report for the Southern Area & South Coast SSB Net held on Thursday 09-05-2024

The net is held on channel 39 mid-block/FCC/CEPT using LSB and is scheduled to start about 20:00 PM or 8 o'clock 🕗 in the evening local UK time.

My location for the net was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌳 Forest in the county of East Sussex and the set up was the Solarcon A-99 antenna & the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp no power mic) powered by a couple of old car batteries 🔋

The weather at Radio Corner was mild with the temperature around the 11 degrees C mark, a gentle breeze, high hazy cloud and a thin slither on the moon 🌒

Here is my list of stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net

Thank you all who called in and sorry if the "few" who willing choose to ignore the chairs requested to keep it short, decided to have long overs, which caused the premature end to the net because everybody drifted off to something less boring instead!

Until the next one

Well done Ray for all you do and it is a shame that certain operators just keep droning on & on & on & on & on. >:(  ;)  :P

Hello

Welcome to my report of the Southern Area & South Coast UK Net held on Thursday 16-05-2024

My location for the night was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌴 Forest in the county of East Sussex, which is about 33 miles or 52 kilometres from the centre of London.
My set up was the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp no power mic), powered by a couple of old car batteries and a Solarcon A-99 about 3 metres off the ground.

The net can be found on channel 39 LSB on the mid-block or 27.395 MHz and is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs 🕗 or 8 o'clock PM local UK time.

The weather at Radio Corner was still and cloudy with a gentle wind that would occasionally show the 1/2 moon and the band conditions were flat due to a solar activity.

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