30 division--Alicante--Spain (sorry the propagation faded mid QSO)
CT1074--Mike--Brighton--East Sussex
LT01--Jake--Highgate--North London

And Myself CI2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex (keeper of the log)



That concludes my log.
Sorry if I've left anybody off or got things wrong.



After the net, I hung around for the Perseid Meteor Shower, and I counted 9 streaks across the sky of different brightness

Cheers Ray for another great Southern and south coast net and also KP 441 for relaying QSO’s when things got tough.
A few tweaks have been made to my working conditions so hopefully I won’t be sitting on that side twiddling my fingers and straining my ears as much from now on.🤣
Sadly didn’t catch any of the meteor showers it clouded over in London.
Can’t wait for the next net.👍🏻

Hello



Welcome to the report for the Southern & South coast net held on the 26th of August 2021.


Sub-titled

The embarrassment, the pain, the horror


I arrived at my normal spot on Ashdown Forest, set up the Moonraker 1/2 wave vertical on the 3 meter pole and proceed to hook up the radio.

Then as the sub-title suggest it went wrong.
I put the red wire to negative and the black wire to positive!

A flash of light and a blown fuse Southern Area SSB net - Page 8 1f61e , that's embarrassing I thought.

Out with a new fuse, recheck the wiring and I should be good to go.
Another flash of light and another blown fuse, that's a pain I thought.

A quick phone call to say I'm not in the chair tonight and then started to pack up and go home  Southern Area SSB net - Page 8 1f62a 

Once home, out came the screwdriver and the multimeter, then the horror, I had blown the reverse polarity diode! Southern Area SSB net - Page 8 1f62d



Enough of my problems, on with the report

Thank you to Nigel EK720 and Steve KP441 who stepped in.



Here is a in complete list of stations that took part

C03E8--Isle of wight

Hello all and welcome

Here is my review of the Southern Area and South Coast SSB net held on Thursday night
09/09/2021

My location was radio corner, Ashdown Forest, East Sussex.
The set up was supposed to be the Anytone AT6666 and the Moonraker vertical half wave.
Checking the VSWR on the Moonraker, it showed above 3, which is high as it is normally below 1.3.
Checking the coax, I found that the plug on 1 end need some resoldering.
So over to the back up, a Sirio 4000 on a mag mount.
With the delay, Nigel (EK720), Steve (KP441) and others started the night off.

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

AMC674--Kev--Dorking--Surrey
KP441--Steve--Mobile A24--West Sussex (1st location of the night)
AMC1966--Boris--Bexhill--East Sussex
EK720--Nigel--Jack n Jill--West Sussex
FB20--Jonno--Duncton Hill--West Sussex
CI2121--Adrian--Warwickshire?
OM001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
KP441--Steve--Kithurst Hill--West Sussex (2nd location of the night)
CT1291--Toby--Torbay--Devon
AH09--Tim--Chute Causeway--Wiltshire
AMC388--Neil--Sutton Scotney--Hampshire
CT4094--Dave--Winchester--Hampshire
AMC1837--Stuart--Southampton sea front--Hampshire
WA82--Keith--Worcester--Worcestershire
CW43--Kris--Shoreham--West Sussex
JB259--Jason--County Durham
RD15--Rod--Grimsby--Lincolnshire
CT4532--Dave--Beachy Head--East Sussex
LT727--Dave--Elstree--Hertfordshire
PM40--Mark--Billingshurst--West Sussex
And me, CI2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Thank you to all who called in and the patience you showed waiting to be passed round.
