Walking to the waterfront I can see the sky above the dawning sun, this morning it was a very striking pink. I knew that it would be gone by the time I arrived at the halfway point, the Gosport promenade, and indeed it had. Although it had been replaced by some incredible, gentle shades, hence the pastels. It was a lovely view.
The problem? For those that don’t know, I’m a licensed radio ham. On a Wednesday night I take part in a “Net” where a group of amateurs have a chat over the radio. Tonight, I was supposed to chair the South East Hampshire RAYNET Wednesday Night Net (I’ll explain what RAYNET is later). Anyhow, I turned my radio on, and after a few seconds, it jumped from the programmed channel on to 144.000mhz. It didn’t matter how often I put it back on the RAYNET channel, after a few seconds it jumped away again, and I can’t stop it from happening. I’ll leave it tonight, and investigate a bit more tomorrow. Concerning, as I’m supposed to run the Isle of Wight Radio Society Thursday Night Net tomorrow.
I’ll have to see what happens.
