Clyde Valley Friday night net.

Over the past few weeks the Friday night net has been growing and last nights was a corker with stations all over the Glasgow, Ayrshire, Clyde coast as well as stations from Northern Ireland, Eire and a couple of stations in Stranrear.

A big hand goes to Stu 108CT1642 for getting this net up and running and as word spreads we get more names in the log every week.

There's also another net on the same night the North/North East Scotland net and as our net died down for the night I managed to have a good qso with a couple of the stations up there - Scott 108CT197 and Ean Not bad for a 218 mile trip.

Clyde Valley Friday night net 27.405usb 1900 - 2100 - https://www.facebook.com/groups/clydevalley/

North/North East cb net - https://www.facebook.com/groups/122273285264583/?ref=group_header

I gave it 80 mins before the guys who were left on I could RX/TX from the QTH so I called it a night.
There might not be a net next week due to my shift liable to run over on the back shift, but we will definitely return on Friday 16th Feb.

Hopefully I've put all these reports in the correct place, if not I'm sure admin will move them.

Should've been posting them every week but never seem to get round to it.

The net is growing and there are many more contacts coming in and keeping the channel active well after the net winds down at 2100hrs.

Hopefully as word gets out we can get the rest of the UK in there as I can copy North Wales from my perch line of sight and 218 miles to Scott in Westhills Aberdeenshire.

Next weeks net on the 20th should be a cracker hopefully as many of the stations on last night are going for even higher ground and bigger antennas.

Give it a try folks you never know.

Some amazing contacts tonight. Young Dennis 108LR193 by far the youngest in the log and I'm honoured to be his first SSB contact. Jake SDX212 in Partick using a decades old vertical in his loft!!!! was earwigging all night because he didn't think anyone would hear him and only shouted in at the end. The North East guys could hear most of us but conditions were difficult to say the least due to the aurora tonight. Plenty of contacts from 68div too. Thank you to everybody that shouted in and apologies to those I've missed or cocked up.
Normal service will resume next week......73s.

Mike we're desperate to get some 26 div in the log. With the ground wave contacts we've been making the last few weeks we should easily be getting 100 plus miles south of the border. Heard about a new net also running tonight on 27.485 but couldn't hear anything. Hopefully get you in the log soon.
