Here is my report of the Southern Area & South Coast SSB net held on Thursday 22-09-2022.

The net is held on 27.395 USB or channel 27 USB FCC and is scheduled to start at 20:00 BST or there abouts.

The weather mild and cloudy

After my trip last week, I was back at Radio Corner on Ashdown Forest with the Anytone AT-6666 and the Solarcon up on a pole.

The band conditions were noise with the normal snap, crackle, pop, beeps, voices and da da dee's. This made, what should have been easy contacts difficult at the beginning of the night.
But thanks to the near perfect prediction of Chris CT 5588 the noise did abruptly stop.

Now on with the stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net.

Hello and welcome

Here is my report for the Southern Area and South Coast net held on Thursday 13th of October 2022.

My location was a cloudy and damp Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest in the county of East Sussex.
My set up was the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp no power mic) and a Solarcon A99 vertical antenna.

The channel was full of the USA booming in with South Carolina, Maine, New York state being heard and answering back to our CQ DX calls before being lost in the inevitable pile up and noise.

With so much happening on LSB, the net stayed on LSB for the rest of the night.

Now for the list of stations the called in and were heard and or worked by the net.
All stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

The net will now be on 27.395 LSB (lower sideband)


After a trial of 2 weeks, there has been a 100% approval by all, that LSB is the place to be.


Hello all and welcome

After the news about the switch to LSB, here is my report of the net held on Thursday 20-10-2022.

My location was Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest in the county of East Sussex and the set up was the Anytone At-6666 (no amp & no power mic) and the Solarcon A99.
The weather was different wherever I looked, above me and to the West clear skies, to the North and East clouds and to the South lightning in the distance. What a combination!

As with the previous week, there was the sound of the USA 'waving a hand atch ya'.

The net is scheduled to start at 8 o'clock 🕗 and to my surprise did start at 8 with my first call of the night

Now on with list of stations that called and were heard and or worked by the net.

Thank you all for calling in and sorry if you did and we missed you.

Here is my report of the Thursday night, Southern Area and South Coast net held on the 10-11-2022

The net can be found on channel 39 LSB midblock or channel 39 on the FCC frequency.

My location was Ashdown Forest 🌲 (home of Winne the Pooh) in the county of East Sussex and the set up was the Anytone AT-6666 and a Solarcon A99 on a 3-metre pole (no amp no power mic).

Due to my working hours, I got on the net after 8 o'clock 🕗 which was already underway thanks to Roz AMC 02 👍.

The weather can be summed up in 3 words, cold, dark, windy.

Now on with the list of those who called in and were heard and or worked by the net. All stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

Thank you all who called in and sorry if you tried and wasn't heard.

During the night, the net was plagued by morse code.
This wasn't an attempt to sabotage the net.
It was a licensed operator getting his 27.395 mixed up with his 28.395 😂

That rounds up the report, 73 and TTFN 👋

Hello and welcome

Here is my report for the SSB net held on Thursday night 24-11-2022

The net was scheduled to start at 20:00 hrs 🕗 but we got side tracked chatting about Deans new DX Commander mast and having an eyeball with Russell AKA Speed Bird from the PMR net, who had made the effort to travel over to see us.

The weather for the night was raining, dark and wet.

The set up used belonged to Dean CT 1829 and it was the CRT 9900, KL 203P amp and the Hawkins 5/8 wave wire antenna up on a pole (not the DX Commander).

Now on with the list of stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net and all stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

Hello all

Here is my report for the Southern Area & South Coast net held on Thursday 08-12-2022.

I arrived to a cold and frosty Radio Corner where the outside temperature was zero or in the minus and this was at 18:30  affraid.

Dean pulled in a bit later and we had a pre net chat and it was decided to put Deans new pole to the test. So up went the 12m Dx Commander with a Hawkins 5/8 wave wire antenna and at the other end was the CRT 9900 and a little 203 amp.

At 8 o'clock or 20:00 hrs the call went out to start the net.

Thank you all who called in and made it an enjoyable evening out in the cold.

When Dean and myself took down the pole it was covered in frost, which proved that the temperature was below the zero mark 🥶

Stay safe and warm and we will catch you next time

Hello

Welcome to the 1st Southern Area & South Coast SSB net of the new year, held on Thursday 05/01/2023

Just to mix things up, I tried somewhere new.

I parked up on the Kent/Surrey border in a place called Scearn Bank Car Park and used my Anytone AT-6666 and a Sirio 4000 on the mobile shack.

The weather, for those interested, was cloudy with some wind.

Now on with the all important list of stations heard and or worked by the net.

CT 4013--Tony--Brighton--East Sussex
FB 249--Jason--Cowfold--West Sussex
CT 5588--Chris on a bridge--Welly Garden Centre--Hertfordshire
NB 101--Dave--Edenbridge--Kent
DDB 29--Paul--Cranleigh--Surrey
Mr DJ--Russell--Brighton--East Sussex
OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
CT 4515--John--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex
VT 01--Roy--Biggin Hill--Kent
FB 298--Tony--Brighton--East Sussex
CT 1829--Dean--Mobile Kent/East Sussex border
CT 4169--Martin--Hasting--East Sussex
CT 3466--Ray C5--Crowhurst--Surrey
GT 67--Crawley--West Sussex
and me CI 2290--Ray--Kent/Surrey Border

Thank you all who called in and an extra thank to Dave NB 101 and Dean CT 1829 who decide to seek me out and join me for an eyeball and chat.

Will I be back in my normal corner or trying out somewhere new for the next net?
The only way to find out is to listen in or join in.
