Yes, we are still quite a busy 4m community down here on the UK south coast.
This weekend there was flurry of activity on all bands (including 4m) from the quite new Fort Purbrook Amateur Radio Club
) operating from the roof of our home: a 19th century fort just north of Portsmouth, Hampshire.
In my role as the customary Sunday morning FM net controller, I ran the net today using the FPARC club callsign M0GZN instead of G3XUX/P. All of us at the fort were delighted to make contact with the roving Ron G7EPR, a regular net contributor. He was 50 miles away from Portsmouth at a campsite in Newhaven and he was pounding in at 58.
Ron often visits Newhaven and wonders if there are any 4m FM stations nearby?
BTW, I'm still dropping cheeky hints that our 4m FM net on the south coast should appear on this website in the "Regular net activity on 70MHz" table.
