Perhaps that needs explaining soon then guys, because it looks like everyone is being asked or advised to use the calling frequency 27.275.

Yes call on the UK calling frequencies then QSY.

This will be the fifth event celebrating legal AM and SSB in the UK.

AM calling on 27.125 channel 14
SSB (USB) calling on 27.275

The aim of the event (and other related events such as The Big Net in November and the PMR446 DX WEEKEND) is to get as many people as possible on the air at the same time, thus improving the chances of us all making some great contacts. These contacts will hopefully result in regular chats between users who were previously unaware of each other.

So SPREAD THE WORD!

OK Del so your promoting your own thing and you have scrupulously avoided my attempts to contact you privately and discus things so we don't have a confliction of frequencies on the night! so we'll do it publicly mate, hear goes. Your plugging AM and I don't have a problem with that except your encouraging people to use 27.125 the "AM Calling freq". problem is that Roy and the lads in the north-west are using that freq on Wednesday 27th of June to activate The five counties in the north west region as part of the Activate All Counties. Infact they have been using that freq on SSB for the North-West SSB net getting on for three years, And you know this cos you publish and regularly update a list of all the nets that take place through-out the UK

So why are you actively encouraging people to cause to QRM to a well supported long established net that generates plenty of activity on a legal SSB freq? And please don't say "Its the designated AM calling freq" because It might be in Delboy world but the fact is that after four years flogging the dead horse that is (Your vision for UK Mid-band calling channels) The FACT is nobody uses them!!! Just a little dose of reality. you can spam the be-jesus out of the internet and facebook et al from your armchair all you want but its the efforts of dozens of dedicated people all round the country who are going to take to the hills on the 27th that will make it a great night on mid-band and many people are going to a lot of trouble to organize things maximize everyone's chance of being able to work as many parts of England as possible apart that is from you, who for some reason have decided to actively undermine everyone else by going rouge elephant?

Sorry to everyone else for the rant but for the record I have tried contacting Del months ago on a number of occasions and was ignored (Odd for someone who supposedly likes talking on radio) and given he never seems too busy to to bladder the internet with stuff bigging up his social media profile its harly likly he's short of time. So over to you Del are you going to reply?.....

Tom has been working bloody hard to get this off the ground. It's been publicised for four months or so. I think it's not great when others decide to go lone wolf and do their own thing irrespective of Tom's efforts. Not great.

73, Tom.
I'm sorry you feel this way. You did contact me, saying you'd like to talk, and I asked numerous times what you wanted to discuss but I got no-where, you refused to tell me what you'd like to discuss. I offered to chat via messenger, email or via the contact form on this forum, but you did not get back to me.

Now that you have explained what is bothering you I see that there could be a clash between the AM net on channel 14 and The Big Net (Although your AM net normally takes place on a Tuesday not a Wednesday). This is regrettable, however as you may recall when the AM net was first started I did (along with others) make the comment that using the long esatblished AM calling channel for a regular net could prove problematic. Channel 14 was the AM calling channel back in the 70's when I first started on CB radio so you must have known that you could have problems with stations calling on there?

In any case if previous events are anything to go by you probably won't have much to worry about as AM is not very popular here in the UK due to the high levels of noise, indeed your AM net appears to be the only regular AM net in the country. If you are that bothered and are expecting problems I'm sure that you could have moved the AM net to another channel 'for one night only' as you would have been aware of the event many months, if not years, ago.

As you know, 'The Big Net' is a well esablished event, first occuring in 2006 to celebrate 25 years of legal UK CB radio. The November net has taken place every year since and will take place again this year on 2nd November.

In 2014 an additional net was organised and took place on 27th June to celebrate legal AM/SSB and the June net has taken place ever since.

I'm truly sorry that you appear to have issues with these organised nets which are there to promote CB radio here in the UK and beyond. The whole point of these events is to get people talking and to make new connections which will hopefully turn into regular conversations on the CB.

Your comment that I "have decided to actively undermine everyone else by going rouge elephant" is nonsense, I have nothing but the best interests of CB radio at heart and as for me "spamming the be-jesus out of the internet and facebook" if you mean I spend a lot of my spare time promoting CB radio and radio operators in general, well I guess I'll have to plead guilty to that one.....

One thing for sure, I never would have thought that there would be SO MANY stations and events on CB radio that there would be a problem like this. It just goes to show what a great resurgence we've had in CB radio over the past few years which is something that should be applauded by eveyone!

(I do not intend to make any further comments on this matter, I just hope that you will realise that I do have the best interest of CB radio and CB radio operators at heart and I will be dissapointed if you continue to feel that I don't)

Just find it ever so slightly ironic that someone with the best interest of radio and operators at heart, wouldn't actually talk and wanted to use chat, email or a forum. Wouldnt of thought Tom was gonna ask you out for a date or anything. Must of known it was something to do with radio.

To be fair Del you asked me once to "send me an email" so your assertion you asked me " Numerous times" is cobblers. Aside from that I really don't have time for email ping-pong. and beyond that you clearly have no idea who I or others involve in the SSB nets are nor have you read my post properly. as reading your responce you have clearly seem to have me confused with Doug CT2537 (who runs the S/E based AM net on 27.125 on Tuseday evenings and Roy UK873 Who runs the N/W based North-West SSB net on the same freq on Wednesdays.)

The fact that you went public with your Big Multimode "net" shortly after we had announced our plans and have made effectively zero effort to respond to my wanting to talk with you coupled with some ambiguous wording and serious spamming of every CB site around tells me that effectively that you seem to to for reasons known only to you want to ride a coach and horses through careful long planned arrangements we have been working on for the last eight months (by the way this isn't about me) what we're trying to do involves more than fifty people and the help and support of the guys around the country has been phenomenal, Tim and Ray have agreed to move the night they run their net, Stuart is going to set up an SSB net in the South-west specially for the evening many others have agreed to travel to farther/ different locations to try and get every English county on the air simultaneously that evening, and if you'd bothered your arse to talk with me I was also hoping to get you to go portable and activate somewhere up your way as your undoubtedly a big figure in the 11m world. But you unilaterally decided to plaster the web with your own stuff and encourage people to use frequency's which will make it far more difficult for folk who have gone to a lot of effort to put on a hopefully great event to do so!

It's not just 27.125 Wednesday night Home of the SSB Net in the Northwest for well over two years it's also the fact your wanting people to use the "The SSB calling channel" on 27.275 just 20Kc's from the Mid-week (also SSB) net freq on 27.255 Martin DA022 and me have been using this Freq for almost three years now Del! so imagine the bleedover we are going to get when some of the Big QRO stations heed your encouraging them to shoutout on there.

If the skip is in then it's going to be difficult enough to hear those distant UK stations trying to call in and if you have "the best interest of UK CB radio at heart" you have a very strange way of demonstrating it mate, From where I'm standing the only thing you seem keen to promote is "Delboy Enterprises" and if thats at the expense of a load of genuinely enthusiastic folk who are taking time and trouble to try and do something differant thats just tuff titty on us eh?

I notice that your already trying to establish the long standing credentials of your "Big multimode net" tracing its roots back to 2006. (ie your not going to change the freq's that your advocating people use on the night) Sad thing is all this friction could have been avoided if you'd done me the courtesy of getting in touch when I approached you five months ago.


As for "(I do not intend to make any further comments on this matter,)" just a veiled way of saying "Delboy's world rules so up yours!" or at least thats how I read it. You have a very cynical way of going about your business Mr Boyd and I'm not the only one who has noticed!

Strange that the Delboys are so numerous in radio circles. I can think of three, currently active who are all considered ledgends in their own minds and who are all running businesses or unregistered companies. There were two more way back then, who were similarly minded, but they seemed to fade away sometime in the late nineties. Just proves that where CB is involved, nothing much changes.

Cheers.

Its sad to see this happening this day and age when so much of the spectrum is not used, guys its radio we have lots of empty frequencies to use. I have the AM and SSB calling frequencies saved in my radio and to be honest Ive called out and never get a reply, Ive got my radio on scanning through my saved frequencies and again I never hear anyone else calling out.

For me back in the 70s North East England our AM calling channel was MID band channel 25 (27.245), its etched in my head 25 a copy lol, I was only a young school lad so I didnt travel around and I have only recently found that different areas used there own calling channel, 25 was not used throughout the UK and I learnt that on CT so I thought I knew everything about cb but I actually didnt lol.

Channel 14 calling channel (27.73125) was used on 27/81 band back in 1981. Yet friends in Manchester told me they used channel 19 and never heard anyone use channel 14 in that way.

Im sure the best thing to do is use whatever you want and Im sure all us breakers will move on when we know we could block a certain frequency and spoil the fun for others.

I will be out and about mobile (taxi) and will try every channel and hope to catch you all. I also hope the clown that was following me around the band on Friday trying to spoil my DX has died, he was probs jealous because I was making over seas contact mobile and he couldnt get out lol.

Its good to see you guys so passionate and promoting cb radio and keeping our hobby alive but please keep it clean, lifes to short.

All I will say before I get shouted down by certain person, is that back in the pre legal days of CB(AM days which was on the mids) when I was on in the mid early 70's the 14 and the 19 was calling channels then when it became legal on UKFM it carried over the same but as time went on it seemed the 19 became the main calling channel and seemed to have stuck this was in London and surrounding areas but as Daz said once as got well outside of London the calling channel did differ,also l will agree with Daz I have never heard anyone call on the so called calling channels /frequencys that Delboy promoted once we got SSB and AM legalised.

Where I live now (N.E. Lancs) the only channel I ever here people calling on is T5. Back in the 1980s the calling channels in my area were CH14 (FM), CH19 (FM mobile) and CH27 mid-band for AM and SSB so it all depends where you live....different areas / countries have different calling channels for each mode and the only one that everybody agrees on is T5 (27.555 USB).

The reason why the T5 (27:555 USB) is rekonised worldwide as the International SSB calling frequency is because it was set up by agreement by the Alpha Tango Group Italia back in the late 80s early 90s which included all the division numbers all for all country's, so it's been a worldwide thing for years, the only reason here in the UK we used the 14 and 19 was because when CB was in its early days, I mean we'll early pre legal days we just copied the U S A as we didn't know what CB about as such, that's why we use to get all that soppy American CB slang being used back then which sounded stupid coming from us., on another note I can remember when we got the mids made legal only on FM when they gave us them to make the UK have 80 channels and a few us old AM diehards did complain but we gave up moaning about it because we all mainly went to SSB anyway, but no one said let's have two calling channels back then ie one for uk40 and one for mids, I used like it going on the mids to get away from the wolly on uk40 who didn't have 80 ch, butTBH I don't think some realised we had them legalised on FM only back in the mid 90s cos hardly anyone used them in the end for some reason
