I have just spoken to Richard 940 who gave me permission to post the photos that his wife Pru took at Radio Corner on 10th June:

It was a great night for a unplanned meet up and good to see that Radio Corner lived up to its name with 20 & 40 metres and PMR being used.

Great night and thanks to all. 😃

Hello all and welcome

Here is another episode of 'Ray Reviews' the South Coast/Monday Night/Channel 14 PMR Net held on the 17th of June 2024.

or

"After last week, what does this week bring?"

My set up for the night was the CRT Space U powered by a car battery 🔋 and a 'Sputnik' GPA antenna up on a cobbled together metal and fibre glass mast.

The net is held on analogue channel 14 where no kind of CTCSS, DCS or 'privacy tones' are used. This makes it open to all, whatever your knowledge of radio is.

My location for the night was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌴 Forest (JO-01-BB) in the county of East Sussex where the weather was still, calm with high cloud and a fantastic sunset or reds, oranges and yellows. The temperature at the beginning of the net was 16.1 degrees C and at the end it had fallen to 11.2 degrees C.

The net is scheduled to start at 8 o'clock 🕗 local UK time, but, it can start a bit later depending on the work shift of the chairman. If you tune in early, you can sometimes find some stations on having a pre-net warm up chat.

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

"How high is it?"


The South Coast net was held on analogue channel 14 (446.16875 MHz) in the NFM mode and doesn't use any of those CTCSS, DCS or privacy tones that PMR radios come with.

My location for the net was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌲 Forest in the county of East Sussex were the weather was hot with a clear sky, and sunset not to be missed looking at the cars that came in and took photos!

The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗 and finishes anytime between 22:00 Hrs 🕙 and midnight 🕛. But if you tune in early, you could find a pre-net chat.

My set up for the night was the CRT Space U, a car battery 🔋 for power and the 1 and only 'Sputnik' 1/4 wave antenna up high on Toby's Racal military mast.

Now with the when, where and what time out the way, on with the list of stations heard and or worked by the net.

Welcome to another episode of "Ray Reviews" the South Coast/Monday Night/Channel 14 PMR Net. Held on 1st of July 2024

My set up for the night was a CRT Space U, powered by a car battery 🔋 and the NOS French antenna up on a pole, this was all located in Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌳 Forest in the county of East Sussex.
The weather was a polar opposite of last week, with a solid cloud cover, no sunset and a light wind.

As suggest by the name earlier, the net is run on analogue channel 14 (446.16875 MHz) using NFM and is open to all with or without a callsign or handle.

The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗 but sometimes you can find people having a pre-net chat.

Hello & welcome

Here is another episode of "Ray Reviews" the South Coast, Channel 14, Monday Night PMR Net, held on the 8th of July 2024

or

"Idiots to the left of me, morons to the right, here I am stuck in the middle"

The net is on 446.16875 MHz or PMR analogue channel 14 in NFM mode and is scheduled to start at about 20:00 Hrs 🕗 or 8 o'clock local UK time. If you can't wait till 8, sometimes you will find the odd station on and chatting pre-net.

My location for the night was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌴 Forest (JO-01-bb or FFO319) in the county of East Sussex and the working conditions were the CRT SPACE U, a car battery 🔋 and the £1 mag mount.

The net is open to all regardless of your radio knowledge, you don't need a Facebook or Forum callsign, nickname or CB handle, you can just call in with your name and you don't need any CTCSS or DCS codes set up.

The weather on the night was rain, showers, drizzle or to sum it up in 1 word WET.

With the when, where and what time established, on with the list of those who called in and were heard and or worked by the net.

Chris--CT 1033--Tonbridge--Kent 🥇
Graham--OM 001--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex--1st location of the night
George--TK 08--Tonbridge--Kent
Adam--Delta 31--Hastings--East Sussex

and me
Ray-- CT 2290--Ashdown 🌴 Forest--East Sussex--In the chair 💺

If you are a regular reader and have got this far down, then you will know that the fun 2nd name given to each episode hints at something that has happened on the night, asks a question or is just a chairman's comment.
Well on this night, the net was graced with not 1 but 2 stations trying to block it.
1 was in the Brighton area snipping a stations catchphrase and playing it on a loop and the 2nd one was in the Tonbridge area constantly pressing the alarm button on their UV-5R type of radio.

Thank you all who checked in and to the listening stations (you know who you are) and sorry if you tried and wasn't heard due to the problems of the night.

That about wraps thing up and brings this episode to an end.
