You are welcome, Max.👍 I should have noticed you are in Ireland, as you say it is illegal there too. I think it is illegal in most parts of the world, I know it certainly is in the states. OFCOM haven't the time, money or resources to investigate it here.

A few weak Italian stations coming in now on 27.555, mostly unreadable here on the West of Ireland Atlantic coast. I wish the guy whistling for long periods, including whistling morse code to get attention would quit doing it.

Heres a bit of usless radio trivia John mate and anyone else who might be interested from me "the man of useless trivia " LOL,  did you know even FM is is illegal to use in the U.S that's why you never see a U.S spec radio with it fitted,  plus as for T5 that was first set up by the Alpha Tango Groupe Italia as the international calling channel when they also first set up all the division numbers for each country  back in the late 80s early 90s that's why Italy is 1 division lol I  think the U.S wanted to be division  1 as CB was a American thing so they settled for being 2 division,  also as far as know 27:555 Brazil is the only country that it is a legal frequency , there ya go a bit  of useless trivia radio info .
Nice bit of info, Martin.👍

Tuesday all afternoon 13/10 was just great on the European DX channels left and right of 27.555 - at least where I am in the West of Ireland. The Netherlands, Belgium and Italy (including the whistlers) all very strong. The Netherlands was so strong that I had to put in the 20 dB receive attenuation on my FT-7B.

Some whistling Italian(s) heard on 555 just now today (13:00), so maybe it will open up again for the afternoon. Unfortunately I can't transmit right now because I'm still making my magnetic loop antenna.

OK, so this afternoon's offerings on the Euro DX frequencies around 555 turned out to be a bit of a flash-in-the-pan. Just a couple of very weak signals heard here in the W. of Ireland.

Same here Martin, dead as the proverbial Dodo!
(Been like that for weeks, but we got spoiled on the summer skip!)

Of course, I could now join the 'jerrys' on 80m, DX competition on 40m, the 'cha-cha-cha-cha' picket fencing on VHF/UHF mobiles, but the rest of the bands are as dead as 27MHz......so much for getting my ticket eh? Wink

Ha! Gotta laugh Very Happy

Luckily I've got one or two other hobbies I can get on with......just as well really Wink


Keep that chin up Martin! Smile

I was hoping to get on the radio today, but ended up doing a twelve hour shift. Doesn't look like I missed much, chaps.

The radio gods have got a sick sense of humour John.
Either working hard and no time for the radio, or having all the time and nothing of interest on the radio! Very Happy

I agree John, do like Martin's Midland, cracking rig Smile

I like your Lincoln MK1 as well Martin Smile

I'm hoping we get some good conditions come up on 27MHz as despite having access to the Ham bands now, CB still excites the heck out of me!

Ha! Very Happy

Isn't it funny how you feel we've got to apologise for our CB experiences Martin? Wink

When a good 'skip' season is in you can chat to the states on the proverbial piece of wet string. 

Of course no one believes you, they've got the best 5/8ths antenna, the best rig money can buy, the best mic, 1:1 SWR, etc. etc. and either struggle into the 'local' net or chuffed to bits at getting Alfonso on the 555 with his beam and 1500w burners.

They'll be chuffed no doubt and why not too.

But it was something else when we sat on our cr*ppy AM rigs back in the day, magmount scratching the paintwork on your Dad's old Cortina and with 4 watts of mid-band AM chatted to a trucker in the States or the farmer in Kentucky.

It was all down to that fantastic sunspot we had back then..... let's hope this coming cycle is a good one too.
(We've had some disappointing ones up to now!)

If it is as good and exciting as back then, we can have a whole new generation of CBers who won't be believed in the future either Wink


Mother nature dictates the conditions, not how much money you throw at your gear. 
Dedication is not turning your rig on every so often for a few months but sticking with it for years, possibly decades.

Here's hoping us old b*ggers make it to the peak of the next sunspot and that it's as good as the one we so fondly remember.

Ha! Ha! Very Happy

You keep being as straight laced as you are Martin, I for one appreciate it like mad mate! Smile


We currently live in an age where everyone seems to get offended by the slightest flipping thing or worse still when having to face certain truths Wink
You can't even genuinely help someone nowadays without them flying off the handle......


We had it good back then Martin, let's hope we get to see it again......then we can sit knowingly with the "Told you so".

I am sat out here in my shed sorry shack again (sit in here every day).
Got the HF on the 2m/70cm on 3 scanners going and all i can hear is radio 2 lol.
Will be in here till around 4.30 and back again tomorrow around 9.30 to listen out for signs of life.
Bound to hear something soon as the wife will shout me in for dinner through Alexa lol.
