Yeah real damp squib.
Just the 223 different stations across the six nets.

Not just a CT net either. Funnily enough the poster who said that called into the south east net and spoke to myself. But ho hum.

Positivity is a useful thing to adopt. Get on your radio.

Oh and just to add.... only 3 of the 48 counties failed to see a station entered into at least one of the 6 net logs.

For those wishing to see 108 division participation, sounds great. Needs someone to arrange it, maybe those who feel strongly about this (as is your perogative) should arrange a similar event?

:clap: spot on ! I think this was a really good event and in my view a successful one despite what any doom and gloom merchants might have to say about it.

First off, it is good to see activity levels in your area were good. It's a different story where I am unfortunately.

However, it's a real shame you weren't using legal SSB equipment. IMHO, that just completely misses the point and the entire purpose of the celebration.

just wondering how many are celebrating this "Legal SSB" with legal CB radio's incl legal power...
Not sure how clever you thought you were posting that, but if your going to make an issue of it, i still have those videos i DL off you tube of you using non type approved radio, and broadcasting on that very same net.

Its just radio, lets face it, these days any activity is good.

I hear nothing!
Turn the radio on m8. IOW station worked into Cambridge and right up to the north. You do turn the radio on right ? Actually thinking it about it, it sort of makes sense now. Someone said there was an operator on the IOW and for the AAC event. Someone else said they were 10-1 so we sent someone over able to put a proper station up.

Started at 6.00 most people are still at work at 5.30

All in jest, take it easy maybe next year you could put a decent station up and cover IOW ?

Best of luck to everyone taking part tonight in The Big Net and the other event which I cannot mention due to the threat of legal action from the organiser 😉
Well lets face it Steven, if your going to work your artwork into ours with a view to making it look like the event was something to do with you, your going to get stung m8.

Reading posts on the "June 27th Counties Private Chair Group" on Facebook, it looks like people have turned on each other now, stations who appear to have simply been trying to do their best, often in difficult conditions.

It's a real shame that a celebration of UK CB radio has turned into a total farce by a tiny minority of operators
