Reginal TV company's (LWT, Tyne Tees TV, Southern, Anglia TV etc), a night club on a boat? and Ray C5 converting an old 405 TV aerial to 446 beam.

Thank you victor

As the Guv'nor, chairman or the bloke with the pen & paper. I'm lucky to have a great bunch of operators who call in. 

Thank you, to all of you.


When the police pop in for a chat, we have a way of moving THEM ON! Wink

I may not be able to join in Ray but always love reading your net reports if only for the madness and humour! South Coast PMR net report - Page 5 1f44d 

You definitely need much more than a CTX callsign for wearing shorts in such weather!! Very Happy
(Maybe a Mothers scorn for going out dressed as such? Wink)


Awesome stuff as always and again a big thanks for sharing with us all.

All the best,
Victor

I know I've said it before, but they are a great bunch of operators. 
When it's busy with a lot of stations calling in or there is a lift on, they try to work as many stations as possible, when it's quiet the overs can be longer and conversations can evolve and go off in funny directions!

Maybe one day the radio gods  South Coast PMR net report - Page 5 1f64f  will grant us some tropospheric conditions that will allow you to hear or even be heard on a Monday night. 

I do get questioned about what I'm wearing. When I've answered the response is always "SHORTS!! In this weather!" or "are you CENSORED mad!"

I have sent you a PM, hope you enjoy the article.

Thank you Victor

Hello all and welcome to another episode of "Ray reviews the South Coast PMR net" or

NEWSFLASH
"finally mother nature has got me into long trouser affraid South Coast PMR net report - Page 5 203c "

The net was held on Monday night, the 29th of November 2021.
The frequency was 446.16875MHz or channel 14 on the PMR band and it started close to 20:00 hrs or
8 o'clock

My location was Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest in the County of East Sussex and the equipment was
the TYT TH9000D and the £1 converted taxi mag mount.

The weather was cold, cloudy with some sleet in the air. The temperature was about 3 degrees but did feel colder in the wind.

So I called out at 8 o'clock (give or take 5 minutes) and the first 1 to reply was....

OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
Paul M--Vigo Village--Kent 
CamperVan Man--Nigel--Yet Another cap park on Ashdown Forest--East Sussex
TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent
CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
KP 441--Steve--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex
Rufus--Bluebell Hill--Kent
CT 3466--Ray C5--Crowhurst--Surrey
DK 276--Ricky on the Ridge--Near Hastings--East Sussex
CT 1829--Dean--Edenbridge--Kent
And me CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Thank you to all who called.
Sorry to those who may have tried and was missed (please try again in the future)
If you see something wrong or missed off my review, let me know and I will update it.

Topics of conversation, Graham tweaking his home base set up, and being heard further out and receiving more. Paul M building a kit ATU. Rufus comparing the standard antenna to a aftermarket one on a Baofeng 888, the results favoured the standard antenna!! The cold weather and that some operators were suffering in 22 degrees in there shacks. Thermal underwear. Sprint cycling. Beams & masts. The 2 candle heater that seems to be the thing on YouTube.

That's it for this episode
