Hi John,

Would that be FM, CW or ssb? I have been monitoring 432.200 for a week or so now. Ian, G0UWK has been working his socks off trying to kick a bit of life back into 70cm, and we have had a good few chats, mainly on 432.190. ... I say use calling and sod'em, but Ian is a gent.

am pretty close, not very well hung with indoor ant, but happy to chat.

Hi Dave
Thanks for the reply.
I have now had a test qso with Tony GW8ASD.
I have just (yesterday) got myself back on to 70cms after a three or four year abscence and wanted to know if all was OK.
I look forward to a qso in the not too distant future as I will monitor the calling channel 432.2 whenever I can.
I should have sais the ssb is my preferred mode.
Regards
John in Garstang
