Just wondered if there are any nets in or around newcastle. Just back on the rigs after many years away and its seems really quiet, but it could just be the time of day I pop on.

IF there aren't any - is in anyone interested in starting one?

None that I know of Peter.

Had a scan around the old t'internet and it seems that many people have tried in the past but not sure whether they were successful or not. If I was closer your way I'd happily join in. Smile

We have CT members that are from your neck of the woods but don't seem active on the forum.

Always worth a try though.


It might be worth checking out or posting to FB groups your way and see if you can drum up interest, or indeed even find out if there is any CB action.

If you really do have the radio bug you could always consider taking your Foundation Radio Amateur ticket as there does seem to be lot of Hams your way. After month on month of listening to a dead quiet CB band my way I took that option and now there is always some radio action for me somewhere on the bands. (Lots of other interesting options too.)

Otherwise there does seem to be a bit of a PMR radio movement going on up North at the moment so if you have the gear it might be worth listening out on PMR Channel 8 on Sundays at 8pm. Typical PMR radios are around the £20-30 mark so might be worth a punt. (Baofengs are always fun and can be reprogrammed to cover Ham frequencies if you later decide to go that way.)


As with any hobby there are always options, especially radio.

I wish you the best of luck with whatever you do.


All the best,
Victor

Hey Victor, cheers for the reply - believe it or not myself and my son are both booked on the foundation course starting this sunday with Essex Ham! 

Never thought about checking PMR, I have a couple downstairs that I bought for when I go fishing with my son!

And yeah, cracking idea about FB - I will post some stuff on there and see if I can get a local net setup

Nice one Pete 👍

The Essex Ham course is excellent, (took it myself), so you and your son should do well. I wish you both the very best for your studies and eventual exam.

Hope to catch you on the bands one day, otherwise I'll bump into you on and around CT. Smile


All the best,
Victor
