Home from home John, where is the kettle & frying pan? ;D

I was expecting to see the channel led display in blue by now, what's taking you so long? :P

Never the less a great mobile shack, well done sir. 8)  :)

I would guess the kettle and frying pan are in the back?

A great mobile shack and everything placed within hands reach.
But it is missing something, BLUE LEDS FOR THE CHANNEL DISPLAY

This would put many a van shack to shame. 😉😉

Hello all and welcome

Here is my report for the net held on Thursday 16-11-2023.

My location was a dark, cold, foggy Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌳 Forest in the county of East Sussex.
This is were I set up my portable station of the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp, no power mic) powered by a car battery or 2 🪫🔋 and the Solarcon A-99 antenna.

Surprisingly, I got set up by 19:00 🕖 and after checking the SWR and making a tea 🫖, I was shocked to hear Tony CT 4013 doing a audio check, so I answered back and surprised him, this then opened up a number of calls from people checking there audio and other bits & bobs.
This proves that just because you can only hear static, it doesn't mean nobody is out. You should call out.

So with faint USA on the super bowl and channel 38, the net started at 20:00 🕗 UK time.
In no particular order, here is the list of stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net.
All stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.
