Anyone manage to work any of the LMS special event stations a few weeks ago? It was bloody mayhem! People were getting in a right old frenzy. The pileups were stupid. One station, just kept repeating his call without breaks for around 5 mins at a time. Not really in the spirit. I just listened on n off, and worked 5 of them.

Well done Jeff!
I can understand such an event being a frenzy of activity and hard to squeeze in a transmission sideways.
Here's hoping the programme gets to air over here one day without being suckered up on a money making subscription channel.
I've seen snippets of the programme and great to see 'radio' being shown off in such a way. The only time you usually see a CB or Ham radio on such media is in a post-apocolyptic fashion or someone with a tinfoil hat trying to 'avoid the government' by being 'off grid'.
