Calling all Radio Net users we will be using the call sign Golf Bravo Two Capel Military Show – GB2CMS
CAPEL MILITARY VEHICLE SHOW 2017
CALLING ALL MILITARY VEHICLE OWNERS, EXHIBITORS AND VISITORS WITH WORKING RADIO TRANSCEIVERS EITHER IN FFR OR OTHER VEHICLES.
IF YOU HAVE AN AMATEUR RADIO STATION LICENCE YOU ARE INVITED TO HELP FORM A NET ON THE FREQUENCIES LISTED. STATIONS WITH NOV & CADET OR OTHER UNITS WITH VALID AUTHORITY & CALLSIGN THAT ALLOWS INTERWORKING ARE ASLO INVITED TO CALL INTO THE 5MHz NETS.
THE OBJECT OF THIS EXERCISE IS TO ENCOURAGE USE OF RADIO EQUIPMENT AND DEMONSTRATE ITS OPERATION. STATIONS THAT DO NOT HAVE A LICENCE ARE ALSO GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO MONITOR ACTIVE RADIO TRAFFIC AND CHECK THEIR RECEIVERS
OPERATION. (Experience has shown that only about 40% of vintage radio
equipment is actually in full working order)
It is hoped to establish a Clansman Net on VHF as well as establish SSB (Upper Side Band) operation on HF and AM (Amplitude Modulation) on the 80 Metre band for users of the WS19, 22, 62, C12 or Larkspur etc. Calls will also be put out on 40 Metres for sets with limited frequency coverage, such as the WS18 etc.
Brief Military style radio operating and voice procedure is encouraged to help enhance the feeling of a Military event but it is emphasised that this is entirely for enjoyment only and is not mandatory! Initially the nets will be directed by a control station this could be GB2CMS, G8DXU/P or another designated station. If you have radio net experience with the RAF, ARMY, TA, ATC or CCF etc. and would like to help, please call control.
Subject to availability, the control station will put out a call at the times and frequencies on the attached list. Stations are invited to call in and will be given a signal report: – OK, WEAK, DIFFICULT or UNWORKABLE as appropriate.
Control will compile a list of stations on NET and invite each station in turn to make a transmission. Initially it is suggested that this takes the form of details about the type of radio equipment being used, vehicle type and age as applicable. Otherwise just follow the controller’s directions.
All stations are invited to monitor the two VHF channels listed and put out calls for other stations on 51.600 MHz FM, during show opening hours. Especially at 1030, 1230 and 1530
The format of a typical call would be: –
“Hello all stations CAPEL this is GB2CMS Radio Check Over”
Reply “GB2CMS this is (Your Call) You are OK Over.
The rest depends upon your participation!
