Little bump for the second Tuesday AM night! i finish work at 5.30 and traffic allowing will land on my hill at about 6.15pm. That gives me 15 minutes to get the Antron up and running tied to a post next to a layby! Haha! If you can call out on the 1-4 27.125 AM wherever you are, you may get an answer! I will be on the Hogs Back A31 Guildford bound before the Wanborough/Puttenham junction for those that like to go on Google Maps! Tim is in Hertford and receives well as does Jake in North London. So do call out will be on air from 6.30pm to 8pm ish! Thanks all the best!

Although i couldn't stay long and i had only set up the base station for the first time last night it was nice to make some contacts for the first time in over 25 years. Realised last night that A99 does need to go up another 20 or so feet. Im going to find some high ground mobile on Sunday for my first taste of Sid's net so hope to be able to hear more contacts them. If not ill be back next Tuesday. Thanks Doug

good to hear you call in iain! get someone to put the antron on the chimney! lol 25 years? crikey where have you been? being homebase i have found with myself and other users is you can get out but don`t receive well due to the interference of electrical items etc/ qrm. good work though mate tuning in hope to speak next week!

Hope im wrong but i get the feeling its like a last gasp of a fish out of water. I get the feeling that these are people of similar age group returning to radio. Dont see much evidence of many young people. One or two exceptions to that as with anything. Lets just enjoy it while it lasts.

Good morning! Just a quick plug for this evening`s AM night please all do tune into 27.125 AM wherever in the country you are and give a shout out on the 14 just for fun! Had 26 stations call in last week and a few we could not contact as too far out of range. If you do make contact with any breakers please report it on this thread and see how far we can make the net night spread! Right off to work have a good day!!! Doug ct2537!
