Hi all

Welcome to my report for the Eastbourne Weekly FM Net held on the evening of the 13/06/2019.
My set up for the night was a CRE 8900, a K-PO NM-532 power mic and a Moonraker GAP half wave on a 2.5 meter pole.

My 20 was Ashdown Forest (JO-01-bb).
It was a windy night with the temperature hovering around 10 degress C.

Here is a list of breakers that called into the net.

1  Drummer Boy--Kev--Dorking--Surrey
2  Trans Kitty--Sam--Goodwood Hill--West Sussex
3  DDB 021--Rob--Goodwood Hill--West Sussex (shotgun with Sam)
4  Copper Kettle--Roz--Devils Dyke--West Sussex
5  Origanal Old Man--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
6  CT 941--Simon--Firle Beacon--East Sussex (running QRP)
7  TK 08--George--Tonbridge--Kent (welcome to the net)
8  CT1910--Rick--Bletchingley--Surrey
9  CT 940--Richard--Reigate Hill--Surrey
10  Dragon Slayer--Pru--Reigate Hill--Surrey (shotgun with Richard)
11  Mr T--Ben--Devils Dyke--West Sussex ((welcome to the net) eyeball with Roz)
12  Swampy--Michael--Crawley--West Sussex
13  And myself The Razz--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex (keeper of the bit of paper)

After the chat on FM finished, some joined the SSB net on 27.395 USB.

Cheers to those who called in  and apologies to those who we missed  Sad
The net is open to all so why not call in and introduce yourself.
Feel free to comment, correct my mistakes or why not added your own report.

10-10 Good Buddies

Hi all

Here is my report for the net Laughing  held on the 01/08/2019.

My location was Ashdown Forest (JO-01-bb) West Sussex.
My set up for the net was a CRE 8900, KL203P amp, K-PO NM-532 mic and a GPA half wave antenna.
It was a still, cool night on the forest with some dark rain clouds to the north of my QTH.
The temprature was reading 22 degrees C falling to 18 degrees C.

I put a few calls out and made contact with George TK 08 in Tonbridge Kent.
We had a good chat about radio, life and the Monday night PMR net. At nine o'clock we went our seperate ways with me joining the SSB net.

That's it till next time.

Hi all

Here is my report for the get together held on the 22/08/2019.
As we have done in the past, we meet on channel 3 UKFM.

My set up for the net was a CRE 8900, KL203P amp, K-PO NM-532 mic and a GPA half wave antenna.

It was a warm summers  sunny  night, blue sky, a stunning sunset and birds singing (tweet tweet) in my empty car park.
The temprature was reading 16 degrees C falling to 14 degrees C.

Here is the (small) list of stations that called in.

OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex

CT 1837--Stuart--Winchester--Hampshire
And myself CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Thanks to the few who called in  Very Happy
Having a small group meant we could talk to each other on topics ranging from the original Mini to the history of Ashdown Forest.

Around nine o'clock we went our seperate ways with me joining the SSB net.

Till next time.

Hi all and welcome to what could be the last report Sad for the original Thursday night FM net held on the 19/09/2019.

My location was Ashdown Forest (JO-01-bb) West Sussex.
My set up for the net was a CRE 8900, KL203P amp, K-PO NM-532 mic and a GPA half wave antenna.
It was a clear night on Ashdown Forest giving me a blue sky and a spectacular sun set sunny  and even after the sun had disappeared beyond the horizon the colour to the west was a flame red.
The temprature was 14 degrees C falling to 11 degrees C.

Here is a list of all the stations that called in or were heard by the net.

CT 11111--John--Tunbridge Wells--Kent
And myself CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Just after 9 o'clock John went QRT and i went to 26.285 USB, put a few calls out and heard nothing but white noise or was it the sound of frying bacon? With nothing heard on 26.285 i went and join the SSB net on 27.395 USB

Thanks to John for keeping me company and for the many interesting topics of conversation  Very Happy

Till next time.

Hi. Ray.

Sorry to hear about ur decision to pull the plug on FM Southern
net. I enjoyed ur net 12mths ago on the Hi. As I'm on the edge of
TX range it's difficult in the low & EU E. It's a pity the net was only
started 3/4yrs ago on slide down the trough. Mothball it for 12/18
mths. If there's an interest Go again. My local net Homesteaders
is also struggling we used to have 15/20 op's regularly. Last wk
only 8 the wk before 3/4. I'm hoping to be around for the next Hi.
As it'll be my last. I've seen 5 Hi's & Lo's in my lifetime. Try & get
everyone on FM to join the SSB net & keep that alive for 12/18 mth
Good luck with ur endeavours. 73's 51's Mike 2201/FB855/UK164

Welcome to my report for the net held on 3/10/19.

As always i set up on Hundred Acre Wood AKA Ashdown Forest (JO-01-bb).
It was dark and cloudy with moisture in the wind which left everything wet at the end of the night. Temperature wise it stayed around 11 degrees C.

Now for the list of stations that called in.

OM 001--Graham--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
And myself CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

Thanks to Graham for making the effort to keep me company, we had a good conversation about this & that Very Happy

At 9.00 we both headed off to 27.395 USB and joined the Southern & South Coast Net.

See you next time on channel 3 UKFM

Hi. Ray.

Sorry to see the -1 on ur rep. After all you've done the last 3yrs for
the Southern & Eastbourne nets. Sorry I probably won't be able to
join u on either till WX improves + I now have a disabled Xyl on top.
We had a nice Autumn meet on Homesteaders today with 14 op's
@ WSM. Alan 113 Sid/Marg. Ian 252 Mick/Elaine PD77 Tony TM03
4 Alan/Dawn 1654 etc. We meet twice yearly in June/Oct. Could u
arrange similar for Southern? Good luck/Dx. 73's Mike 164.

Hi Mike

It did seem a bit strange me getting a -1 on my rep, i guess it goes to show that you can't please some people Wink
I read your reports of the various nets/contacts you make and i know we will have a Qso again in the near future Smile
Tim and i did put the idea out there about a "southern" meet up, which did get some interest, but we couldn't take it any further. The 1st DDB net meet, held on Devils Dyke, was a big success and i hope will become a regular thing.

I took to local high ground last night and made several calls until around 8.30 but nothing heard, flicking around the uk band i was pleasantly surprised at how busy some channels were, returning to channel three,two stations were heard but they did not reply to my qsk`s, probably not the best of nights with the heavy down pours to go static.Smile

Hi John

Well done for getting out and about. Did you head to the forest or another high spot?
I wasn't able to get out on Thursday night due to my van (mobile shack) breaking down Sad  and I'm not sure if I will make it out next week (24-10-19) Crying or Very sad

Hope to catch up with you another night.

Hi all and welcome to my report of the Eastbourne FM net held on Thursday the 14-11-2019.

Having been away due to van issues, it was good to set up in the back garden of Winne The Pooh or Ashdown Forest and get back on the air Smile

My set up was the CRE 8900, standard coffin mic, KL 203P and a 1/2 wave antenna.

The weather was wet, some wind and foggy, at one point i couldn't see to the otherside of the car park.

So at just after 8 , i was about to put a call out when i heard a voice calling for a contact Very Happy which got the evening rolling. So without further delay, here is the list of stations who called in.

1.  CT 11111--John--Tunbridge Wells--Kent
2.  CT 2018--Fred--Burgess Hill--West Sussex
3. Myself--CT 2290--Ray--Ashdown Forest--East Sussex

I think a good night was had by all, we went down memory lane to remember classic and not so classic Si-Fi film and TV shows.

At 21:30ish the net closed down and i moved on 27.395 USB for the Southern and South Coast net

Until next time 73
