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

Stations who called in are as follows.....

Nigel--CamperVan Man (CVM)--Crowborough--East Sussex
George--TK08--Tonbridge--Kent

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

Hi all and welcome to a very, very, very, late net report

So it was a Monday, about 20:00hrs on the 10-May-2021.

I drove up to Ashdown Forest (JO-01-bb-14-go) and found that 187 had got the mast up and a beam ready for me to plug in and play.

So i quickly confirmed that we had water, coffee and cups and set up the radio.

Then the invasion started. 2 heavily armed vehicles pulled into the car park and headed towards 187 and I. Heavily armed with radios and antennas turning our bit of the car park into a radio corner. A quick chat with Richard, Pru and Jake before i jumped into the net.

George (TK08), Chris (CT1033) and Nigel (CVM) where chatting away when i QSKed in and was offered the chair. After a round of hellos, Dave(MD26) called in and bought in Boris (AMC1966), someone then mention the antenna farm and took some pictures plus a bit of footage of me doing what I do best, whaffle lol! . Paul M called in and was pasted around the group, then the Reigate Hill posse of Bartman & Joker called in and joined the group. Then Steve T, the Wrothan Hill listening station found a voice and had to join in LOL. I'm not sure if it was George or Chris who called in Dick to the group, but he was then passed rounded. Much to my joy, another of the original net stations, Martin P (HL026), called in.
Ray (CT3466) called in testing his beam, which showed some inprovements over a vertical antenna and before things came to an end, Richard called to check if his mobile set was working.

Towns and Counties covered. . . .
Wrotham Hill Kent
Bexhill East sussex
Vigo Village Kent
Crowhurst Surrey
Hadlow Kent
Polegate East Sussex
Tonbridge Kent
Reigate Hill Surrey
Tunbridge Wells Kent
And Ashdown Forest East Sussex

A big THANK YOU to 187 again, for the use of his mast Very Happy

That about covers it. Feel free to comment good or bad.
See you next

Bill (CT482) in Hadlow
Scott in Tonbridge, worked by George & Paul M
And myself Ray (CT2290) on Ashdown Forest

Not so many called in, so only 2 counties covered Kent & East Sussex.
Topics of conversation ranged from the Russian tradition of giving cake to visitors to 3D printing, bad jokes to politics, antenna testing to exploring mines & tunnels and the skip conditions on 11m over the last 3 weeks.

Thats it for the report. Sorry if i have missed off.

Welcome one & all to my report of the PMR net held on Monday 31-05-2021

After 3 weeks of wet nights, it was a pleasure to have a dry warm night.

So, i arrived at the car park to find Richard (CT940) and Pru (DS01) chatting to 187.
I parked my van next to 187 and hooked up a Yeasu 817 to the 8 element beam on top of a ex army mast some 10 metres in the air.
Just after 8 o'clock I (CT2290) called out on channel 14 to let the others know i was about.

Chris (CT1033) answered my called and we had a chat and then I was in the chair.
From Chris it was over to Steve T (CT2072 aka the listening station), from Steve T it was on to George (TK08). Paul M called and he was passed around the group follwoed by Dick.
Ray (CT3466) called in, and the some time was spent experimenting with his beam, which produced some very encouraging results.
A voice was heard saying "can you hear me", if you are reading this, yes you was heard and 2 of us did call back.
Paul M called to say that due to to much sun he was going to leave the net early (hope you was feeling better for Tuesday).
Nigel (CamperVan Man) and Joe then pulled into the car park for an eyeball.
Steve R then called in and joined the group and the coversation.
At 10 some stations went QRT and by 11 the net was over.

Conversation topics ranged from me waffling to Nigel and his secret stash of biscuits, the German CB allocation with the repeater, vandals and what difference antenna heights make.

We also had a visit from 2 Lotus Exige cars that used the suset as a back drop for some photographs and a couple of visits from the police.

Towns and counties covered where
Cuxton in Kent
Crowhurst in Surrey
Tonbridge in Kent
Hadlow in Kent
Wrothan Hill in Kent
Vigo Village in Kent
Ashdow Forest in East Sussex

Thank you to 187 and all that called in.

Please excuse my ignorance but what is "T2 Gear" Shocked

"some S/SE interest" The Monday night PMR net has been around since 2015, when my hair was thicker and darker Very Happy 

As for gear, anything goes.
We have people using converted taxi radios, hand helds, bake bean tins and string, 817's & Baofengs, all pushing 0.5 to 3 kilowatts of power!
It's about making contact, making radio freinds, chatting and having a laugh.

If your about on a Monday night listen in or even give us shout, channel 14, 446.16875mhz.

Hello, greetings and welcome

Here is my report for the PMR net held on Monday 7th of June 2021

I arrived at "radio corner" Ashdown Forest late due to a late finish at work and found Mr 187 busy putting up the mast.
After a quick hello, I jumped in to get the guy ropes staked out and the pegs in for the inverted v antenna. The beam i was using was already on top of the mast.
Once done, it was coffee time before calling out, well not strictly calling out, more answering a call, I turned on to hear me being called.

So here is the list of stations, in no particular, that were on the net.

Ray--CT3466--Crowhurst--Surrey
Dick--Hadlow--Kent
Boris--AMC1966--Bexhill--East Sussex
George--TK08--Tonbridge--Kent
Richard--CT940--Riegate Hill--Surrey
Paul M--Vigo Village--Kent
Steve--KP441--Horsham--West Sussex--Mobile (worked by Richard CT940 and heard by me)
Chris--CT1033--Tonbridge--Kent
Jay--2997--Crawley--West Sussex--(Pedestrian mobile on a walkie talkie)
Steve T--CT2072 aka The listening Station--Wrotham Hill--Kent
Joe & Nigel (CamperVan Man)--On the Downs near Lewes--East Sussex--(Pedestrian mobile on a walkie talkie)
Paul--PIP57--Bracknell--Berkshire (I heard you calling Smile but you didn't hear me reply  Sad )
And myself, Ray--CT2290--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex--Recording the night on parchment with a quill and ink

Topics on conversation, Joe & Nigels walkabout, the success of Ray making contact with George, me being late and some other random stuff

Thank you to Mr 187 for the use of his mast and beam.
Thank you to all who called

That about sums the night up, so feel free to leave a comment and don't forget to hit the like or dislike button
