Thursday 12 Mar 20

Tonight was the Isle of Wight Radio Society’s Thursday Night Net (TNN) most weeks now, I chair the net for an hour, and going back over my log it looks like I’ve been doing it for at least two years now. As is usually the case, my record keeping wasn’t very good when I started. I have a big A4 notebook which is everything radio. That’s good, I like that.

I usually get 4 or 5 callers on the net which is fine, that gives us 2 or 3 good overs each, and every one gets a chance to have a talk, which is the main thing. A TNN can have a topic, but doesn’t have to and almost invariably talk will drift away from the topic. Tonight’s discussion was Adventures I have had with my antennas, and other antenna stories talk ranged from how one radio ham use a catapult big enough to launch a tennis ball with a wire attached up in to a tree so that they could haul a cable up, through to how one hams antenna got blown over into next doors garden, and how was worried that he could injure someone.

TNN’s tend to start off quietly, and then pick up people as it progresses. I knew it was going to be busy from the off, and it was 13 callers including myself, I think the busiest I’d had before was 12, Apr 2018. It was a good ranging discussion, and people seemed happy with the way it went. I certainly enjoyed doing it.

I didn’t go for a walk this morning. I over slept. Waking up just after 0600, so my out of the house before 0610 kicked in, I knew I wouldn’t do it, so I went and made a cup of tea. Oh well, at least I got out for a couple of miles for lunchtime. It was windy, and the wind was cold, but a double layer of fleece works very well.

Some random pictures for you.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
