I noticed a few new Silver Rods appearing on houses in various parts of town, and haven't seen that in a long time. Spoke to a mate of mine who has just dug out his Ham International Jumbo and put up a new Homebase antenna, and he said that loads of people are coming back on and that it was quite busy even with Homebase users on an evening.
Curious about all this, I decided to dig out my Cobra 75 EU and purchase a new antenna for my van. I bought a President Virginia antenna which I absolutely recommend highly. It looks 100% like a normal 'bee sting' car antenna but has frankly astonishing performance for its' size.
Sure enough, there's quite a few people on. Truckers seem to be using it more and more again, all the farmers and farm contractors are on it, and like I mentioned, Homebase users are back.
And when there's not too many locals on, I flick to the EU channels and for the last week or so been enjoying listening to the Europeans absolutely booming in. Most of them are speaking English in their contacts so it's quite good listening.
Well worth getting the rig out for!
Great to hear there is a lot going on locally to you!
I turned the radio on and there was loads going on (Wednesday evening) I heard 151 division (Iraq) on 26285. Super/Super low was very busy.
