Welcome

Here is my report for the 4th SSB net, held on Thursday night, the 22nd of February 2024.

My location was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌴 Forest in the county of East Sussex. The inspiration for Winnie the Pooh's home,100 Aker Wood.

The net is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs or 8 o'clock 🕗 local UK time and finishes when it finishes.

The weather was raining 🌧 making it damp under foot, and a cold ❄ that penetrated multi layers of clothes.

My set up was the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp no power mic) powered by a couple of car batteries 🔋 and a Solarcon A-99 up on 3 metre pole

Here is my list of station that were heard and or worked by the net.

That about wrap things up

Here is my report for the Southern Area and South Coast SSB Net held on Thursday 28th of March 2024.

My location was a wet ☔ and WINDY Radio Corner, Ashdown Forest 🌳 (the inspiration for A A Milne's 100 Aker Wood, the home of Winnie the Pooh and friends), in the county of East Sussex

The net is scheduled to start somewhere between 20:00-20:30 🕗-🕣, depending on the work shift of the chairs 💺🪑, and finishes when it finishes.

The band conditions where crazy with 2 and 9 division, a youtuber and Mr Blah Blah Blah  :Smile

The net can be found on channel 39 LSB on the mid-block, which is 1 channel up from the American LSB calling channel.

The weather was wet, raining and very very windy.
This made putting the Solarcon A-99 up a challenging task, which, after some 15 or so minutes, I gave up and slapped the Sirio 4000 mobile antenna on the roof. Radio used was the Anytone AT-6666 (no Mic no amp).

So on with my list of stations heard and or worked by the net, all stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

Without you all, there would be no net.

Hope to get you in the log next time

That brings my report to an end

The set up was an early version of Anytone AT-6666 (no amp no power mic) and a Solarcon A-99 mounted about 3 metres above the ground.

The net can be found on channel 39 of the FCC/CEPT band or frequency 27.395 MHz using the mode of LSB. It is scheduled to start at 20:00 Hrs  Southern Area and South Coast SSB Net - Page 18 1f557  UK local time or 20.00 Hrs  Southern Area and South Coast SSB Net - Page 18 1f557  UTC, but it does sometimes start late.

The weather was dry when I arrived at Radio Corner and stay dry while chatting to Toby Tango 187, but when I started to set up, yes you guessed it, it started to rain.

The band conditions were as to be expected, North & South America and loads of atmospheric noise being heard.

Now on with the list of stations heard and or worked by the net. All stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

The net ended at 01:00 UK 🕐 time and I left Radio Corner wet and tired after chairing/DXing for 5 hours.

Thank you all who called in and sorry if you tried and wasn't heard. It was a busy night, with lots of noise from atmospherics, DX, laughing and the air raid siren!!

If you got down this far and have spotted any mistakes, let me no and I can correct it.

Here is my report for the Southern Area & South Coast SSB Net, held on the same day as the 10th anniversary of the legalization of AM & SSB here in the UK.

The net and anniversary celebration was held on June 27th of June 2024 and started at 8 o'clock 🕗 or 20:00 Hrs local UK time.

My location was a quite, still Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌴 Forest in the county of East Sussex and my working conditions were the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp no power mic) powered by a car battery 🔋 and a Solarcon A-99 antenna.

The net was held on channel 39 on the mid-block or 27.395 MHz using the LSB mode

I did flick around the mid-block and was surprised by the lack of things going on

That wraps things up

Here is slightly later than normal report for the Southern Area & South Coast SSB Net.

The net was held on July the 4th 2024, which was American Independence Day, and Polling day here in the UK, and is scheduled to start at about 20:00 Hrs or 🕗 8 o'clock local UK time

My location for the night was Radio Corner, Ashdown 🌲 Forest in the county of East Sussex where the weather was warm, cloudy with a breeze.

The net was held on channel 39 LSB on the mid-block or 27.395 MHz and my working condition were the Anytone AT-6666 (no amp, no power mic) and a Solarcon A-99 on a pole and drive on mast configuration.

Before the list, the band conditions were crazy, we heard Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and maybe Russia, and 1 or more of the ex Soviet Union countries all having local QSO's, nobody wanted any DX contact except the guy in Portugal who said "I no spek Enlish"

Here is my list of stations that checked in. All stations are 26 division unless otherwise stated.

OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex 🥇
163/26 RU 08--Rod--Brecon Beacon--Wales
CT 5159--Neil--Maidstone--Kent
CT 4013--Tony--Brighton--East Sussex
