R.I.P zIGGY , in a few days it will be four years of his passing and as we seem to have entered the clickbait era of blogs and youtube its ( I feel ) worth
remembering a true Radio Star,Back when Single Side Band became legal (2014) on the old mid block frequencies things were very quite , others played
their part, Jason and Gary who were moderators of CT at the time would go CTX and hold monthly nets but maybe because of the lack of numbers on never
got the support their efforts deserved and who can forget the Blackshaw Moor boys "Dave" "Paul" and "Jay" who would go out to high ground with the four
element vertical yagi !  but it was once Ziggy started the Mid Week Net that things at least on a Wednesday night really kicked off on the Legal SSB
frequencies as regards domestic use and Tony from Halifax who sometimes co-chaired and Martin who kept the log should also be noted.Things were far
from perfect the Sun at this time was still active with all the pops , bangs and whistles that come with it as well as deliberate QRM and the check in
nature of the net but with numbers calling in at ninety plus there wasn't much chance to be passed around in a two hour period . This in turn lead to
others setting up regional nets , Roy in the North West, Ozzy in the North East, Richard and Justin in East Anglia, Tim and Ray in the South East and
with the passing of Ziggy the MWN being taken over by Martin and Tom. Others may have played a part in those early days and maybe someone else might
of come along and had the same effect but they didn't and Ziggy surely did . Four years seems like a long time ago looking back and I have no idea what
the Legal SSB frequencies are like now but 26ct1234 / uk1234 / LR123 should go down in history as the Grandpappy of on air Legal CB in the UK.
