Had some radio time today and i thought id have a play on mids Fm and found the parrot/repeater on ch 25 fm open so put out a few calls.
Heard my own voice come back at 5/9 then waited for anyone else to do the same and had a quick hi to a Italian station,no callsigns given and all very casual. Now i have no idea where this originates from as there are a few on mids FM incl Sweden and Germany i believe but i think this may of been from Italy or Spain as that was the strongest prop at that time.
Anyway have a try sometime,just call out and wait to see if you hear yourself then hopefully someone else is also able to open it and ta da,bit of fun

I tried for it yesterday and got nothing Sam, mind you since theres been doing developments ie: building a big football stadium not far from me and some other new building works plus the interference has gone up in my area since last we spoke on radio my TX/RX has become very down .
