My location was a windy and overcast Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest 🌳 in the county of East Sussex.

The net was held on Monday the 5th of June 2023, and started a little before 20:00 🕗 on channel 14 with no CTCSS tones and using the NFM setting on the radio.

My location for the net was Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest 🌳 in the county of East Sussex where the weather was sunny, some hazy cloud and a breeze which slowly got stronger as the night went on.

My set was the QYT TH-8900 D and the 1/4 wave GPA up on a pole to start with, then I changed over to the 8 element beam for the night, hopeful the tropo forecast would be right.

Here are some of the topics of conversation. The prices of CB and ham radio's on eBay, tropo, the comedy due on Firle Beacon, Nigel's electric car, my pen running out of ink, LED head lights and Mikes 4x4 shrinking in the wash.

That about rounds up this episode of Ray reviews. If you spot a mistake, let me know and I will correct it.

The weather in Radio Corner was hot 🥵 and sunny sunny with thunder rumbling to the north, at the start of the net I had an outside temperature of 21 degrees C and when I did pack up it was down to 13 degrees C

or

"beep beep beep beep"

The net was held on 19-06-2023 and can be found on analogue channel 14 using NFM and with no CTCSS tones.

Now if your lucky, you can sometimes call out before 8 o'clock 🕗 and be part of the pre-net chat or like some, you can wait for the scheduled start of 20:00 Hrs UK time or 8 o'clock and call in.

My location was a busy Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest 🌲 in the county of East Sussex and set up used was the QYT TH8900-D, a 2m/70cm white stick on loan from Dean powered by an old car battery 🔋.

The weather was sunny 🌞 and warm and was still mild when the came to an end.

With the clock edging towards 8, I was ready to start, when, a Black vehicle entered the car park and menacingly drove round, causing us all to nervously look on.

The vehicle came to a halt, the drivers door opened and out stepped. . .

Welcome to another episode of Ray reviews the South Coast/Monday Night PMR

or

"MASH 4077th, best care anywhere"

The net was held on Monday the 26-06-2023 and was found (if you was looking for it) on analogue channel 14 using the NFM setting and no CTCSS tones.

The net starts at 20:00 Hrs or 🕗 8 o'clock PM, BUT, if you tune in early, you may find a pre-net chit chat happening.

My location for the night was (you won't be surprised) Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest 🌲 in the county of East Sussex and the set up was the same as the previous week, as I was hoping to hear the beep beep beep like last week.

Just after 8 o'clock 🕗 the net got underway.
Here is the list of stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net

That rounds up the list of stations that called in.
Thank you all who did and sorry if you tried and wasn't heard, please try again another time.

Topics of conversation ranged from not hearing the beep from last week, my deaf radio and trying something different, home built mic pre-amps, Dean fishing 🎣 and the stories of the 1 that got away, the 'racers' that joined us, the 2 Chinook 🚁 helicopters that landed at the Pippingford MOD training ground (just across the valley from Radio Corner) and what to call Ray CT 3466 as he wants to drop the C5. The popular suggestion was Radar Ray, which got the Theme from MASH played.

So that bring the end of yet another episode of Ray reviews.
Thank you for reading and if you spot a mistake, please send a letter to Winnie the Pooh, Radio Corner, 100 Aker wood, Ashdown Forest, East Sussex.

Here are some of the things talked about on the night. My poor joke about cleaning a mic with 'Ariel', can you set up & use a hot spot in Erie and use your English amateur callsign? Adjusting the gain on Neil's homemade pre amp, on the mic, the positive results got when testing Johns homemade beam and for the 2nd week me not hearing station ☹️ , but this time on a different radio.

That bring this review to an end
