It's all the Chinese rubbish we buy in the UK Martin - wiping out all our radio! Shocked
Perhaps that explains why our European cousins get better reception that us?
I used to be able to pick up back of the box stuff 'back in the day' but now have to fight off S5-S7 of hash!

Morning Alan mate.
Look at that shiny new Ham callsign on your profile! Smile

I know what you mean, got my ticket and spoiled for choice.
"What band? What frequency? What mode? Arrgghh! I want them all!!!" Very Happy

Just listening for now.
Like the first day back in the late 70's and never keyed a mic in my life all new to me.

You enjoy a good listen Alan. So nice being 'licensed' and being able to key up though.
That callsign will roll of your tongue quicker than anything mate Wink

Hey guys - I'm one of those "revived CB'ers" but I like to believe I'm making an effort!

I'm currently able to listen every day, and have joined many rounds locally, and can speak to someone local every day if I wish - all despite being in a foreign country and having to speak the local language on air (which I do very poorly IMO, but they tolerate me)!

I don't have a licence which precludes me from doing certain things, and the likelihood of getting one here is quite slim. I watch a local kiwiSDR to see what's going on. Ultimately I'm limited to 4W/12W ssb and on the EU frequencies.

My goal is to DX with one of you UK CT'ers so I can then brag about it right here  Smile  hence chiming in when I see the conditions coming in. Fingers crossed!

Ian

Yeah, have to admit Martin that I don't hear a lot of UK stuff. When the prop is in I assume 'dead zone' from the UK side and when there's no prop I assume no one's on.
I did shout out for months on PMR every Sunday at 8pm as there was supposed to be a 'happening' and never got a thing?!? Even went out on the scoot to raise myself another 700ft and still got nothing! Gave up that malarkey in the end Wink

Hi Ian,

Good for you for trying mate and using a second language with the locals Smile

Here's hoping you get a good UK CT contact one day.
(We've got a nice midwinter 'skip' coming, usually happens around Xmas time!)

Hey Victor - OK looking forward to see if we get that skip!

My local range is about 60km which gives me a good coverage depending on the direction and mountains in the way - I guess that could be more than most folks int he UK?

The Swiss take CB quite seriously, and in many ways it is more like licensed radio (in fact it was only license-free since 1 Jan 2013 so perhaps this explains it as they are/were licensed users). There is no swearing or music, the rounds are well organised and even impromptu rounds are orchestrated by a natural leader who always knows how to do it.

By comparison I listen in to the Jodrell Bank SDR and wonder what the guys on Ch19 are smoking...

You're right there Ian, some of the UK lot are definitely on some sort of medication!
I had heard the Swiss take things responsibly/seriously, we're so 'liberated' over here it's all fallen flat on it's face! Wink

Martin,
I tried out PMR with a mate and we managed about 20 miles on it, but that was a bit over the 500mW Wink
So I know I've got a bit of range but there was no one on in months of calling. Hence giving it up as a bad lot.

Somewhere in the UK there's a little huddle of CBers and PMRers if the Net reports are anything to go by?

I switched my HF rig on last Sunday checking through 20m and 40m and all I could hear was "Contest" "Contest" on the bands, turning to T5, which was really busy, the first thing I heard, again, was "Contest".(all be it a different contest I would imagine)
I hit a memory button and leaving the radio (SS9900) on 26.285 and no sooner had I sat down than I heard a station calling C.Q. to which I replied agreeing to QSY to 26.295 we made contact.
The station was a chap called John, 30FT01 on the Southern coast of Spain within five miles of where you cross for Gibraltar at LaLinea, what really stood out to me was he was using a homebrew dipole.

We managed a few overs before the propagation dropped out and he was gone, I think he was as pleased as I was to make the contact this late into the year and once again the benefit of giving 26.285 a try stands out to me.

Nice one Alan 👍

Yeah, "CQ Contest! CQ Contest", followed by "Repeat please! Repeat please!", and then strangely, "Yes, 5-9 my friend, 5-9!"
(How the heck is a 'repeat please' a 5/9?)

Glad you had a good QSO and a reminder for me to check out those 'lows' now and then Wink

Hello Alan,

Great to hear you are making contacts down there. i have had some great contacts from working around there. Try having a listen on 26.420 (USB) for the Charlie Oscars ( Canadian Outlaws). Always some good contacts into 9 and 2 div.

Just a heads-up, with conditions picking up of late. It is always worth having a listen to 27.515 lsb, as it is the domestic West Indies calling frequency. Some great contacts to be had when conditions allow.
