John, G4GVC, used to run a net for LF-amateurs
on Sundays, starting at 2100 hrs. UK time, on 1875 kHz SSB. Unfortunately John's
work prevented him to do this any longer. Luckily Dave, G3YXM, took over. But he
had to stop the net when propagation became too poor.
Personally I would like the net to be resumed
but then on 80 metres because propagation on that band is now excellent in the
evening hours. Also frequency allocations on 160 metres are not the same in
European countries. In the Netherlands for instance it is only 1830 - 1850
We would be lucky if John could be persuaded to
put on the red cap again and if he agrees it would be fair to ask him to propose
a day and time for the net.
But first we have to know whether there is
sufficient interest in restarting a SSB-net on 80 metres.
So please put your opinion on the
