Here is my report for the Golf Echo held on the 25/05/2023

Having a bit of time before my chairman duties on the Southern Area & South Coast SSB.
I thought I would give the Golf Echo net, on channel 38 UKFM another go.

So my location was Ashdown Forest, near Crowborough, in the county of East Sussex and my set up was the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp & no power mic) with a Solarcon A99 mounted to a 3 meter pole all powered by a 12 volt car battery.

I called "QSK 2290 on the side" and within moments was brought in.

Here is my list of stations I worked

GE 163--Ed--Folkstone--Kent
GE 67--Richard--Near Maidstone--Kent--In the chair
GE 2020--Matt--Near Hastings--East Sussex
KP 441--Steve--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex--Testing out a Mini Springer and get some surprising results
CT 4515--John--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex

Thank you to the GE group for making me welcome and if you fancy some UKFM action, give the guys a try.

Best 73

Hello & welcome

Here is my report for the GE FM net held on 15/06/2023

Having a bit of spare time before the Southern Area & South Coast SSB net, I thought I would enjoy some FM radio. So my plan was to get to Radio Corner, set up and call out to the GE net.

When I arrived at Radio Corner, to my horror 😱 , my corner was already taken by a amateur who was doing a CW contest. So I drove up to him with purpose and had an enjoyable conversation about radio's, the exam, idiots on radio and mutual friends Nigel & Toby. Being true to my word, I wished him best 73 and good DX, and headed off to secret corner on Ashdown 🌳 Forest to set up the Anytone AT-6666 and the Solarcon A99.

Once set up, I listened for a few minutes and then called in with "2290 on the side", Richard finished his Qso and then invited me in to the group.

Here is my list of stations I heard (H) and worked (W) while on.
All stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

GE 67--Richard--Near Maidstone--Kent--(W) in the chair
GE 93--Taylor--Hailsham--East Sussex--(W)
GE 07--Robert--Heathfield--East Sussex--(W) and was mobile 🚗
UK 175--Wayne--Wadhurst--East Sussex--(W) sounded different to what I'm used to on SSB
GE 03--Dick--Old Romney--Kent--(H)
GE 163--Ed--Farthing Common--Kent--(W)
GE 164--Thea--Farthing Common--Kent--(W) well done for conquering the mic shyness 👍
CT 4515--John--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex--(H)
JS 07--James--Bluebell Hill--Kent--(H)
1 CM 020--Italy--(H)

I must also say sorry to Richard who I had laughing with my BIG antenna comments ‼

Thank you all on the net for making me welcome and I look forward to next time 😃
