That's all ya seem to hear now Alan same old same old ,apart from a bit of Spain and the Germans on the mids FM ,that's why sometimes I can't be bothered to switch the radio on and even when the local nets are on it's the same old people all the time and you get fed up talking about the same old stuff what you spoke to them about last time ,its a bit like seeing the Mrs everyday same old same old LOL

I got some encouragement an hour ago (12:00 BST) by hearing what seemed like somebody tuning up by whistling into the mike on 27.185, LSB. This was on my short wire in the attic. I couldn't attempt a contact because I must build a proper antenna first. I'm in SW Ireland, not far from the Atlantic coast.

Could be. I've just heard a French pile-up on 27.195 USB, including somebody sending CW - all faint but just about readable. Same time (16:30 BST).

That's just normal little bits of sporadic skip ,I wouldn't get too excited lads ,as for idiots who do Morse/CW on 27mhz they pi55 me off they should go and do there Amateur ticket and do on the appropriate frequencies or go on 10m and leave 11m alone

I reckon there must be something going on right now. I'm getting all sorts of maybe Spanish, Italian, Russian(?) and other EE languages on EU34LSB... sounds like a complete bun-fight!

Yes, I can hear them now (14:10). Some weak and unreadable, but some (Italians) solid and very readable. Russians very weak. I'm on the West coast of Ireland.

I had a bit of Germany and France on mids Fm at the weekend, very few and far apart now my skip in to Finland, will hang in there, local radio cb is getting better.

Take care all of you ,

I have felt disillusioned with radio over the years and often leave it all be for sometime and concentrate on other hobbies,coming back refreshed.

I have had a couple of months break but switched on at the weekend just gone and spent a good few hours working Russia,Spain and Portugal and had a great time..Putting the beam up helped with contacts and my enthusiasm.
