Well, think of it this way . . . the Halloween AM net is a warm up exercise, for the legal FM net, a few days later :thumbup:

I shall try to make the effort again this year.

Hopefully there will be some activity in Derbyshire on or around ch14. Dead as a doornail last year....

Was on last night 14 at times suggested .managed two contacts. One guy in oldbury sandwell west mids,a second earlier who said hello but obviously didn't want to talk lol and never transmitted again.

I will try again next year ,see if I can drag a couple of mates on too by then.

I actually like the am modulation and noise better than fm.
Propper radio.

Until next year

Dead loss on the hills of Derbyshire for me. Was on from 7pm till nearly 9pm...

All I could hear on 14 was the North West net on USB.

No signs of anyone else on AM. There were 2 locals on FM on channel 4, but that was it. Washout.

Ah well.... try again next year
