Can we static mobile yet ? (lockdown related)

Post by InTheClouds »

(England) I am wondering if the old bill will give us radio heads jip if they see us in the car the countryside ?
Too early ? Or does it meet their conditions in England. It says people can go to the beach and lay about all day so ??

I have terrible home base noise S7+ RX of crackling noise, gives me ear ache and cannot hear anything I want to hear.

Be nice to get a T2LT up in the sunshine.
Am I gettin aaat ? My CB gear = any old long antenna, any 11m radio, low SWR, good coax, get it up high, and most important of all a respect all radio colleagues attitude.

You can travel to exercise but I think sitting in your car would not constitute exercise.

Plenty been out static mobile up here,and none have had a pull.
Plenty are talking worldwide on 27.555 usb,
Some are too far up their own @rse to admit it,
Many happen to know otherwise dx-ing test free,
Showing a complete lack of respect for the law.

Is dogging on the mountain considered exercise?

We popped out on Sunday morning to a local high spot, rig, twig, flask and walking boots, we took a walk but it was blowing really hard with occasional rain, so we got back in the car and switched the rig on, we never came into contact with a single soul, we didn't even see Dominic Cummings his wife or his child..

Just say that you are out dogging to check that your Gentleman sausage still functions correctly.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.
