Charlie Tango DX is a group dedicated to Hobby Radio Users in all forms, whether CB, Amateur, PMR446, Scanning and Short Wave Listening.
We are a very active and friendly group that welcomes anyone from anywhere in the world who has an interest in Radio, regardless of their level of experience, their equipment, their location, or their radio preference.

Hi all, I'm taking a trip to the Isle of Wight to celebrate finishing secondary school and I will be taking radio equipment. Unfortunately due to weight restrictions I can only fit a PMR radio in my bag. I'm going between the 9th and the 13th of this month. I will be taking occasional treks to tall mountains on the island but I'm not sure if he specific times or dates of these. I will call on PMR ch8 (446.09375) and hope to make contact with anyone who's listening! I have been allocated the callsign 26CW/EU120 from the Charly Whisky group. Hopefully I make contact with people from the Portsmouth and Southampton area and possibly further afield! (I might even get line of sight with France on some taller peaks) 73 and I hope to catch you on air!

If you can get on the air for the Monday evening PMR net from high ground - somewhere like the Ventnor Downs or Culver Down - you should be able to get some contacts on there, most of the people who crop up in the reports are over Sussex way so they would be at a good distance. I will have a listen out from Portsmouth if you have particular times you're planning to be on but I doubt I'd get into the net as I will probably be at home.

I have heard French stations recently from Butser Hill, which is 15 miles inland from Portsmouth so you certainly should get something from one of the taller hills on the IoW if conditions are any good. I've been over the IoW several times lately with the 27MHz gear but not yet with the PMR.

As roundtower says, we have a Southern & South East net on Monday nights on PMR Channel 8 from 8:00pm onwards. I usually get on to Devil's Dyke in Brighton which is 700ft ASL. It also has a line of sight with the East side of IOW so a contact between Brighton and the IOW is not out of the question at all. If you can get up onto high ground we will be on Channel 8 PMR like I said, and we will have a listen out for you.
