Hello, I'm new and to be fair if you count my limited use through the early 90's I'm new to C.B. radio too I was just wondering if any body on here has any experience with Hull and the East Riding, from what i can see on the topographic maps we're in a bowl with elevations barely getting over 30m above sea level that being said there are one or two spots just outside of the west of Hull that are 150m/170m that would only take me 15/20 mins to get to.... obviously i understand with my t800 and orbiter mag mount id be better off at the higher altitude but does anybody else have a mobile setup in Hull or East Yorkshire? and could anybody help with pointing out any good spots for reception that i could get out to?

Hi Gareth,

Here's hoping that there's someone on the forum that is from, or knows your neck of the woods and can help you out.

Otherwise you could scout out the locations of interest you've found on topographic maps to see of there's any sweet parking spots. It's a lot easier nowadays too with the likes of Google Earth, online maps etc. to the point of checking locations out without moving a muscle.

Height will definitely help you with 'local' copies and it's a lot easier to drive up a big hill taking your antenna with you than trying to raise it to a similar height from your home QTH. (Can you imagine how many scaffold poles you'd need! Very Happy )

Don't forget we're coming up to the summer 'skip' or Sporadic E season where greater distances of transmissions and reception can be had, (DX). It doesn't have to be all Sideband radio stuff either and I had some great contacts into Germany and Austria a couple of summers ago on mid-block or Euro frequencies on FM. (Yes, FM!)

In which case you might find a better location by going lower to sea level. (What's he on about?!?!) You're not far from the North Sea coastline which surprisingly to some can help with radio transmissions and as you can imagine there's nothing but sea between you and continental Europe from up there. If on air activity is up you could get some great DX on a summers afternoon and right through to the 'greyline' activity as the sun sets. (This can be done at dawn too but not many fancy getting up that early. Wink )

Anyway, food for thought.


I wish you all the best with it.

73,
Victor

Now then fella. Did you ever manage to make any contacts? I'm on the border of North and East Yorkshire, so not so far from you. I'm new to all this too and am interested to hear how you've been getting on.
