Hello and welcome 

Here is another episode of "Ray reviews the Monday night PMR net"

or

"Who forgot the nets birthday? 🎂🎈🎈"

The net was held on Monday 24th of October 2022 and can be found on channel 14 using no CTCSS tones.
My location was Radio Corner Ashdown Forest 🌲 in the county of East Sussex (JO-bb-01) or the home of Winnie the Pooh 🧸 and friends.

The set up was the TYT TH-9800 and the 1/4 wave up on the pole, which was under dark low clouds South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 2601 that looked as if they would drop a deluge of water South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 2614 on you at any moment.

With memories of last week, it was time to start the net.

Now much to everyone's surprise, I called out at 8 o'clock to start the net and was answered by, 'Ray, if that's you, your mic is not working'  Rolling Eyes
So, after a bit of fiddling about, the RJ11 plug was held in place and off we tried again with some success, but during the night I would check that it hadn't moved.

Here is the list of stations that called in.

CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
C V M--Nigel--Crowborough--East Sussex--1st location of the night
OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
VT 01--Roy--Biggin Hill--Kent
CT 4362--Chris--Reigate Town--Surrey
GE 12--Tim--Hastings--East Sussex
KP 441--Steve--Henfield--East Sussex--Mobile
C V M--Nigel--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex--2nd location of the night 
OT 357--We did hear you calling and called you back throughout the night
CT 3466--Ray C5--Crowhurst--Surrey
D31--Adam--Hastings--East Sussex
CT 4013--Tony--Brighton--East Sussex--With his Chinse takeaway interference.
KP 441--Steve--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex
GB 23--Paul--Gatwick--West Sussex--Welcome to PMR and thank you for the surprise!
TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent
GE 12--Tim--Near Eastbourne--East Sussex
CT 2453--Chris--Near Eastbourne--East Sussex
Speed Bird--Russell--Reigate Hill--Surrey
And me, CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex--With the paper and pen 📝

Thank you all who called and if you tried, sorry we didn't hear, please try again next time.

73 and TTFN

Ray

Oh, and before I forget, the answer to the question posed at the beginning of the net is yes all of us forgot.

The net turned 7 at the beginning of September, so here's to next year and he 8th anniversary.

They do say that as you get older birthdays become less important and sometimes you may even forget your own! Wink

With such an established Net there Ray taking the example of 'dog years'  South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f408 that is a long time for a worthy radio net to be running. South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f44d 


So even though belatedly may I wish a very happy birthday/anniversary to the South Coast PMR Net and all those that organise it, record it, join it and most of all enjoy it.  South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f382 

Here's to many more.  South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f37b 


All the best,
Victor

Gutted to have missed this week's network, but I was actually feeling under the weather. Already looking forward to next weeks shenanigans! 

Also made a new small advert banner to splosh some traffic onto the net to confuse the net controller Mr Ray even more  South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f602 

South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 Pmr_ne11

7 years... absolutely terrific! and not to mention getting it into Radio User magazine haha.

Until Monday, 73' and erm... Bonjour!

Hi Victor

No chance of every forgetting my birthday. 
I have a friend who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I'm a year older, every year on my birthday.

I for one, did not expect the net to last this long. 
PMR is so different to HF, it doesn't have regular skip patterns, it doesn't seem to do well from a homebase/town location and what I think puts a lot of people off is the fact that you can't brag about the different countries you have contacted.
But on the plus side, 20 miles on half a watt (if you're on a hill) is something you can brag about 😀 

The more emojis the better 😆 and looking back at the last report I have added more 😆😆

Hi Mike

Love the new banner and you are right, a half hour net with lots of call ins and pass arounds would keep me busy and confused.

Hello ghastly ghouls South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f47b and monsters of the night

Welcome to another grisly Ray reviews the Monday night South Coast PMR net

or

"Día de los Muertos"

The net was held on 31-10-2022, Halloween night or all hollows eve and could have been on channel 13 but we stayed on 14 for safety!

Before getting to my normal location on Ashdown Forest, I collected all the things I would need to survivor the night, Garlic, wooden stakes, Crossbow, silver bullets, holy water, fire and coffee.
Now armed to the teeth, I drove across the dark parts of the forest and the words "stay on the road keep off the moors" randomly popped into my head and 'Was parking in a dark lonely carpark and good idea tonight?' I thought.

I pulled into a dark spooky Radio Corner with my head lights on full beam, but even this didn't have any effect as it seemed the darkness was just swallowing the light.

After putting up the antenna, I locked myself in the vehicle and plugged in the TYT TH-9800, which seemed cursed as the mic plug problems came back to haunt me.
Out came the backup radio, which was a QYT KT 8900D, and away we went.

If your new to the Monday night net or maybe live in the area that the net covers, you can find us on channel 14 or 446.16875 and no CTCSS tones.

Now on with the list of stations that called in and were heard and or worked by the net (some have been added for fun)

CT 3466--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex
Speed Bird--Russell--Reigate Hill--Surrey
1 2 3 ah ah ah--The Count--Sesame Street
CT 4627--Joker Steve--Reigate Hill--Surrey
CT 4610--Andy Bartman--Reigate Hill--Surrey
Frankenstein's Monster--Somewhere in Germany
Alan--Redhill--Surrey
CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
Quasimodo--The Bell Tower--Notre Dame--France
KP 441--Steve--Devils Twisted Evil Dyke--West Sussex--A brave man. . . .
Rick Grimes--Atlanta--USA
CT 4263--Chris--Reigate Town--Surrey
Mr Invisible (if anybody saw him lol!)
OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
The flying skull South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f480 --Radio Corner--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex
CT 4029--Tom--Blackheath--Southeast London--Rocking a UV5R and standard antenna
VT 01--Roy--Biggin Hill--Kent
Dracula--Transylvania--Romania
PIP 57--Paul--Bracknell--Berkshire--Worked by Reigate Hill and heard on Ashdown Forest
The Werewolf--On the Moors--Yorkshire
CT 4515--John--Jack n Jill--West Sussex--1st location of the night
CT 4013--Tony--Jack n Jill--West Sussex
TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent
Wednesday Addams--0001 Cemetery Lane
CT 4013 & CT 4515--Tony & John--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex--2nd location of the night
And me CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Thank you who called on a busy night with not the best conditions

With the sound of the Monster Mash👻💀 in the background, it's time to bring this scary episode to an end.

Don't worry about that creaking door, scratching at the window or the strange banging coming from the cellar 😱 . Tell yourself IT'S JUST THE WIND!

Bye bye creatures of the night

The South Coast PMR net or Monday night PMR net was held on the 7-11-2022. 
The net can be found on channel 14 and no CTCSS codes are used.

My location for the night was Radio Corner Ashdown Forest 🌲 in the county of East Sussex and the weather was dark and windy 🍃 with the full moon 🌕 occasionally showing through the clouds.

Hello 

Welcome to another episode of Ray reviews the Monday Night PMR net AKA the South Coast PMR net

or

"Do the RNLI come this far inland to rescue sinking vans 🆘"

The net was held on Monday 14-11-2022 and can be found on channel 14, no CTCSS tones needed.

The weather at Radio Corner was torrential rain 🌧️, mixed in with heavy rain ☔ and sometimes the odd bit of light rain with rain.

The net starts at about 8 o'clockish but sometimes you can find people chatting away before the unofficial official start time  scratch

My set up for the night was the QYT KT 8900D (which is not so good on receive as the TYT TH-9800) and the 'Sputnik' 1/4 wave GPA.

Did I mention that it was raining on the night?

On with the list of station that called in and were heard and or worked by the net.

CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
CT 4627--Joker Steve--Reigate Hill--Surrey
CT 4610--Andy Bartman--Reigate Hill--Surrey

CT 2207--Neil--Crowborough--East Sussex
CT 4362--Chris--Reigate Hill--Surrey
and me CT 2290--Ray--Radio Corner--East Sussex--With the pen 🖋️ and paper 📃 

Thank you all who called and sorry if you tried and wasn't heard.

Cheers to Boris AMC 1966 and Dave MD 26 who join us for a short while from the channel 12 group 👍

Some of the topics of conversation were the surprising results of Dean CT 1829 making contact with both Tony CT 4013 in Brighton and John CT 4515 on Ditchling Beacon handset to handset and the 10 year old gas bottles in Ray C5 CT 3466 camper van, that Nigel did not mention diodes or resistors 😆 or did he and the rain.

That about wraps up a wet and soggy night

Splish splash and 73

Glad you didn't get "bogged down" Ray, made a "splash" on the night and eventually had a "whale" of a time......


Yeah, I'll go get me coat. Very Happy


Awesome stuff as usual Ray and shows your dedication (or madness!) to a worthy radio pursuit with another great net. Well done. South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 1f44d

Your watery puns have given me a tsunami of ideas.

Yep, that's me behind you with my coat 😄

Hello and welcome

Here is another episode of Ray reviews the South Coast PMR net aka Monday night PMR net.

or

"What do you call a beam that swings in the breeze?"

The net was held on the 21st of November 2022 and much to everybody's surprise started on time, yes on time at 8 o'clock 🕗.

My location was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌳🌲 Forest in the county of West Sussex and now costs £5 a visit or £80 a year.

My working conditions for the night were the QKY KT-8900D and Deans repurposed 3-pronged Nagoya ground plan kit.

The weather was cold, clear and windy with the temperature in the mobile shack at 17 degrees C and at the end of the night, the outside temperature was down to 4 degrees C.

Now less of my Jibba Jabba and on with the list of stations that called in

CT 1829--Dean--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex
CT 3466--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex
C V M--Nigel--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex
CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
Pete--Location unknown

CT 4013--Tony--Brighton--East Sussex
TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent
MD 26--Dave--Bexhill--East Sussex
TW 460--Richard--Tunbridge Wells--Kent
And me CT 2290--Ray--Radio Corner--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Thank you all who called and sorry if you tried and we didn't hear you

A taste of what was talked about, going off grid, would it be possible to warm a room with a diesel heater like the one's in lorry 🚛 sleeper cabs, the commentary from 441 watching 4515 putting up his pole in the wind, solar panels and when Graham the landlord will be up to collect the rent from 441 & 4515 (who will have the better biscuits 🍪?)

That about wraps thing up, but before my finals the answer to a beam swinging in the breeze is a 'weathervane' 😆😆

TTFN & 73

Hi Razz, Keep the Jibber Jabberering up mate as I enjoy reading it. Especially the extra jabba.

How high up are you and are the other breakers in ashdown forest parked up near you or spread out ?


I switched a Baofeng UV5R on tonight around 7pm and caught the early start of the north west net.

So I nipped out in the car up a bit higher and logged in to winter hill Bolton 37 miles away and 5/9 both ways.

I think there was 26 logged when I left at around 8pm.

Left the squelch switched off from last time I used the space U and buggered about for a while in the dark to sort it lol, bloody menu's Very Happy

Poor speaker in that radio but it is tiny. Mind you, so is the Baofeng but for a handheld it sounds as good or better .

In fact, I switched it on and placed it on the passenger seat for a stereo effect lol.

Then I remembered the old NEC extension speaker in the glove box. A bit of fumbling in the dark with the jack plug lol and a little cubby in the car it fitted nicely and voilà, heavenly sound .

Ps, I've attempted to post many times but the mobile version of the forum hates me lol.

Hi Nige

There has been many a time when I have had to cut short my Jibba Jabba on the radio because i have forgot that I'm supposed to be chairing the net 😆

My height is approximately 241 meters or 790 feet depending on what map or App you look at, and yes, Nigel, Ray C5 and Dean share Radio Corner with me (safety in numbers) which makes for interesting testing with so many different radios and antennas at different heights.

Is the Northwest Net part of the 8 at 8 Sunday PMR net?
37 miles on a UV5R is good going and does surprise people, coz they think you're on a big '3' handy or mobile radio.
I must say 26 in the log is a good turn out as PMR isn't everybody's cup of tea.

From what all the users say on a Monday night, the only problem with the Space U is the speaker and the best way to fix it is with an extension speaker

73

PS the forum has in the pasted deleted my net reports too 😭😭

Hello all and welcome

Here is another episode of Ray reviews the Monday Night PMR net aka The South Coast PMR net

"Did I hear cake 🍰 mentioned?"

The net was held 7 days after the last one, so the date must have been 28/11/2022, it was on the same frequency of 446.16875 MHz or channel 14 and it did start near the advertised time of 20.00 hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗

The weather on the night was clear on the hills with misty fog in the valleys, cold and from Radio Corner you could see the crescent moon 🌙

My set up for the night was the QYT KT-8900D and Deans (gifted to me) antenna.

So, without further ado on with the list of call ins and contacts.

Hello all and welcome

Here is another episode of Ray reviews the Monday Night PMR net 

or

"SHORTS 🩳 ‼"

The net was held on Monday 5th of December 2022 from a cold and cloudy (was there some sleet in the air?) Radio Corner Ashdown Forest 🌳🌲, in the county of East Sussex.

If you want to know what my set up was, read last weeks review and the radio was set to low power.

The net is on channel 14 or 446.16875Mhz and we use no CTCSS tones.

Now on with the list of all the stations that reportedly called in.

And me CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

That concludes the list of stations heard and worked by the net.
Thank you all who called in and sorry if you tried and wasn't heard.

Topics of conversation ranged from Nigel's Christmas lights, Deans new pole (yes another one!), cleaning washing machines, me in shorts, a whisper of a diode and will a Chinese diesel heater run on a mixture of diesel with used engine oil or used chippy oil?

Special thanks to Steve CT 2072 & Harry for coming up and seeing us 👍

Nigel and his Christmas lights

That wraps up this report for the net, and it just leaves me to say 73 and catch you next time.

Hello all and welcome

Here is another episode of Ray reviews the Monday night PMR net

or

"is this the end?"

The net was held on the 12/12/2022 from a cold, dry, snow covered Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest in the county of East Sussex. 

South Coast PMR net report - Page 10 Videoc10

The net is held on channel 14 or 446.16875 MHz and does not use any CTCSS tones so that it is open to anyone and everyone that is in the area and starts around the 8 o'clock or 20:00 mark

My set up was the QYT KT8900D feeding the Dean built GPA antenna up on a pole.

Here is the list of stations heard and or worked by the net

CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
CT 1829--Dean--Edenbridge--Kent
OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
Dave--Sevenoaks--Kent
CT 4362--Chris--Reigate Hill--Surrey--Yeah I got the callsign right first time LOL
Alan--Redhill--Surrey--Working a Handy
CT 3466--Ray C5--Crowhurst--Surrey
London Calling--Mark--Leyton--East London
And myself--CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

The net suddenly finished when one of the above listed stations said to the group lets go to channel 31 on the UKFM, leaving me all alone. 

So I packed down and went home.

Another snow picture

Gutted for you Ray, braving the cold inclement weather to hold your usual "PMR" net only to see it slip off to CB frequencies. scratch Crying or Very sad

At least you went back into the warmth which must have felt more welcoming.


All the very best to you and your radio passions,
Victor
