Hi all, I've been into radio for about 15 years, firstly with CB up until last year when I abandoned it due to music players and idiots.
We've been messing around with PMR for about a year here in Yorkshire, when we first came on it was relatively quiet, now it's hectic like the CB am days and seems to have spawned a PMR revolution. Over here we have the 8 at 8 dx group which operates on a Sunday night at 8pm on channel 8. We have been getting copies from mobile stations over 100 miles away. Last couple of Sundays there have been over 20 breakers on the channel. 
We also use channel 10 for local.
The other thing we are looking into is the license free band 49mhz which has 5 channels with 15khz spacing from 49830 to 49890. We are currently using 49890 as the calling frequency so if you're in the Yorkshire/Lincolnshire area have a listen to see if we can make contact or give a shout on there.
Happy listening and 73's.

Hi 'Nav',

I'm not surprised you abandoned CB, I've heard some of the commotion that goes on up there on those frequencies via the webSDR receivers. (They must've been kids in the 80's first time round doing that stuff and never dropped the attitudes?!?)

I think it was the 'Ringway Manchester' guy on YouTube that I first heard mention of Sunday, 8pm, Ch.8 PMR. I tried for months calling out my way 'darn sarf' every Sunday to no avail so good to hear you've got a bit of a crowd your way.

I wish you continued success with it and hope you get a few more enthusiasts join in.


All the best,
Victor

Hi Nav 

Must agree that PMR is defiantly on the up , here in the Yorkshire dales ( despite the hills N valleys ) we have a very active Ch 8 pmr , almost like the old CB days 

Long may the trend continue 


Craig

Hopefully you'll be getting more breakers down your way on PMR as the band progresses. We've noticed a massive increase in activity lately with lots of new breakers.

Hi all, so  nice to hear that pmr is like the old cb days without the idiots that stay on channel 19 and play music,I too have moved away from fm,so upsetting how a few have spoiled it for many old school breakers, hopefully pmr will be as good here on Merseyside as it is in your area.
All the best, Paul.

Very worried that PMR will attract the same idiots that try to ruin the cb bands.
Let’s enjoy good radio, and decent breakers.
It’s a great hobby.

The idiots are everywhere now.
The low cost Baofeng has brought them onto the 2m band and i bet 70cm but don't use that band much.
Next they will be getting HF set's and OFCOM does nothing even when given qth details of the idiots.

Far easier to avoid idiots when not channelised though. Very Happy

I'm not sure modern idiots are the same as old school idiots. Back in my CB days it was a real novelty to think they had a captive audience so some idiots talked nonstop about nothing or played music because it made them feel important or something. But nowadays you can get thousands of "friends" on Faceache or Twatter and be your own media star on your very own Yuktube or Tacky-Tok channel, so the thrill of broadcasting pointless waffle across the airwaves to a minute audience might not seem so cool now.

Yes there will always be idiots, but do idiots have the patience for radio nowadays when they can do so much more with a smartphone?

Every morning you will find one at least on GB3MP from around 10am or not long after.
Prestatyn that repeater is but does cover a large aria.

Being fair. The kids were already on pmr with their walkie talkie radio so you can’t complain that they are on because it was theirs first!
With only 16 channels I don’t see what all the fuss is about. We have more channels and power on legal cb!
