Hello all and welcome.


Here is my report for the PMR net held on Monday the 29-03-2021


My set was the TYT TH9000D and a homemade mag mount.
The location for the night was Ashdown Forset, East Sussex.


I called in late due to chatting with another radio operator and was very quickly put in the chair as Nigel was only keeping it warm for me LOL
I was then told that the 1st hour had been busy with a number of stations calling in from different areas and some stations calling in from France.
Sorry to say this list is incomplete.


CamperVan Man--Nigel--Crowborough--East Sussex
TK08--George & Sue--Tonbridge--Kent
????--Dick--Hadlow--Kent

CT331--Jon--Rye Harbour--East Sussex--Worked by Nigel & Dick

CT1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
????--Martin H--Beachy Head--East Sussex--Worked by Nigel & others
CT940 & DS01--Richard & Pru--Devils Dyke--West Sussex
KP441--Steve--Henfield--West Sussex
MD26--Dave--Bexhill--East sussex--Worked by Nigel & others

CT2207--Neil--Crowborough--East Sussex
WF02--Mike--Somerset--Worked by Richard
CT2072--Steve T--Wrotham Hill--Kent
JS07--James--Rochester--Kent
????--Paul M--Vigo Village--Kent
????--Jay--Hastings--East Sussex--worked by Richard, Steve T, Paul M and others
DT1070--Del--Swindon--Wiltshire
????--Paul--Newport--Isle of Wright
????--Chris--Little common--East Sussex--worked by Nigel
Tango 187--Toby--Heathfiels--East Sussex
And not forgetting me CI2290--Ray--Ashdown Forset--East Sussex



It was a great night for Dxing on PMR, I think the best contact was Toby in Heathfield talking to Del in Swindon.
If you are in the Swindon area, listen out on channel 12 in the evening, as there is often people chatting, so pop in and say hello.



Between the DX contacts, the conversation ranged from cakes to the little clips you can buy to fix a broken RJ45 plug to who will call in next and from where to the weather.



I think that abouts covers the night.
Sorry if I have missed off the list and please feel free to comment, good or bad.



Thanks to all

Hello and greetings

Before the report, a quick thank you to Tango 187, who allowed me to share the use of his ex military mast. Very Happy 

So the set up for the night was the TYT TH9000D radio and a 1/4 GPA (sputnik) antenna on top of the 12 meter mast.
My QTH was a very cold Ashdown Forest in East Sussex. I'm glad we had a supply of hot water for coffee, as by the end of the night it was below zero degrees affraid 

Now for the nights report.

I turned the radio on and headed to channel 12 to see if the extra height would allow me to reach the Hastings area, which it did cheers 
So here is the list of stations i made contact with.

AMC 1966--Boris--Bexhill--East Sussex
MD 26--Dave--Hastings--East Sussex
CT 940--Richard--Reigate Hill--Surrey
????--Jay--Westfield--East Sussex
TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent
????--Sean--Hastings--East Sussex

It was great to be able to talk to Boris, Dave and the rest in the Hastings area, something that the extra height made possible.
So if your round the Rye, Hastings, Eastbourne area, give a shout out on channel 12 on a Monday night.

Now for my report of the chat/net on channel 14.

CamperVan Man--Nigel--Crowborough--East Sussex (Chair Person)
TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent
CT 3466--Ray--Near Lingfield--Surrey (working from his sofa)
KP 441--Steve--Ditchling Beacon--East Sussex
CT 1033--Chris--Tonbridge--Kent
????--Dick--Hadlow--Kent
CT 2072--Steve T--Wrotham Hill--Kent
CT 940 & DS 01--Richard & Pru--Reigate Hill--Surrey
CT 2207--Neil--Crowborough--East Sussex
????--Sean--Hastings--East Sussex
KP 441--Steve--Henfield--West Sussex (2nd location of the night)
And myself CI 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

I think that is all who called in, but sorry if I have missed you off.

Some of the topics of conversation for the night ranged from Nigel getting a pen & paper, old home computers like the ZX81, Commodore 64 and the like, Cake, classic arcade games like Defender, a Tank game which nobody could remember the name of, Asteroids and as always Nigel did manage to bring up the subject of relays, diodes and capacitors.

That about covers it, thank you for reading and please feel free to comment good or bad.

Cheers N Beers
73 till next time

Hello all and welcome to my report for the PMR net held on Monday 26-04-2021

I arrived at Ashdown Forest for 8 o'clock and started to set up when disaster struck.
I needed to move the antenna from 1 type of mount to another and didn't have the right size Allen Key Sad 
Not wanting to miss the net, I headed into Crowborough to find Nigel (CamperVan Man) and hoped he had a key to fit. After surprising Nigel by pulling up in front of his van, i was invited in and i explained my predicament. He said why not chair the net from his van, so here goes. . . .

Nigel handed me the mic and i spoke to Martin H (FB223) who was near Eastbourne, we then moved round to Dave (MD26) who was in Bexhill and then Chris in Little common, Chris said that Boris (AMC1966) was also on but Nigel and I could only hear a voice pattern. They then move down to channel 12 and continued the night. So if your around the Rye, Hastings, Bexhill or even Eastbourne on a Monday evening, why not give them a shout.
We then moved round to George (TK08) and Chris (CT1033) in Tonbridge followed by Dick in Hadlow. Paul M QSKed fron Vigo village and was passed round the group. Surprise of the was Joe from Wadhurst calling in while working a handset from up a TREE! affraid

That rounds up my report of the night.

Thank you to Nigel for the use of his radio and the coffee.

That's it till next

Hi Stephen

PMR does seem to have taken off over the past few years.

I can remember when this net started back in 2015, I was on Ashdown Forest using a Motorola Talkback T5522 500mw handy on the first night.
It's a shame that the history of the net is on the tapacrap forum.

As to your mystery radios, could they be for the American GMRS or the German Freenet frequencies?
Good luck finding out

Hi Folks. 
I realise I am at risk of embarrassing myself here. But if it helps , it's worth it. I bought walkie talkies made in China. They ship with random test frequencies. I had to change them to pmr466 using chirp. Otherwise they would have been useless.  That was my experience anyway.. I hope you get it sorted... Kind regards

Hi all and welcome

Here is my report for the PMR net held on Monday 03-05-21

My QTH for the night was a wet, cold and windy Ashdown Forest in East Sussex
and the set up was a TYT TH9000D and a beam antenna up on Tango 187's mast.

So with the rain coming down and the wind blow i called in just after 8 o'clock.

George (TK08), in Tonbridge, answered my called and invited me to take to the chair and keep things going as there was only a few people on. After a chat with George i went across to Dick, in Hadlow, and continued the conversation. Then Richard & Pru (CT940 & DS01) QSKed in from Devils Dyke and they talked to both George & Dick. Paul M, Vigo Village, called in and joined the chat. Some time later a vehicle pulled into the car park and we found that Richard & Pru had driven across to see us. Richard had a minor radio problem which then became part of a conversation about old/classic radios and the fact that parts are no longer available to keep them on air.
John, over in Westerham, called with a "hello hello hello", it was the first time he had heard anybody and was surprised that his UV5R and mag mount on a tin was working.
At 10 o'clock we decided to pack down and head home.

Counties covered were Kent & East Sussex and even with the low turn out we didn't run out of things to chat about.
That rounds up the report.

Thank you to Tango 187 for the use of his mast and beam, while I was on PMR, he was working the ham bands.

Till next time
