13FB666 will visit Scotland


Hi guys,

I will be on vacation in Scotland for ten days (10th to 20th of September) and I will take a very small, portable CB Radio Station with me.
Albrecht AE6110, Wilson Base-Kit with DV27-long and two [sign in to see URL] LiPo´s with me.
(Perhaps I will bring a PMR 446 Radio or my Yaesu FT817ND with me as well, I do not know at the Moment, I plan to travel light.)

I will stay one day near Edinburgh and one day on Isle of Skye as well.
The rest of the time I will travel around Scotland counterclockwise with my car and ]trailer mounted tent.

I plan to get the Radio up and running in the evening as soon as I find a convenient Campsite.

Are there some local groups somewhere? And if so, on which channel?
Do you use the 40 EU or 40 UK Channels?
Do I need to be aware of something special?

Wow great, have a nice holiday emoticon

Will you be 108/13FB666?

When on the Isle of Skye you could be 108FB/EU008, if you get some prop be prepared for a pile up emoticon

Would be excellent if there was some propagation for 108 div from here. Use 27555 for DX and 27275 for local legal calls on SSB. Otherwise have a listen around emoticon

Hi,

thank you.
Yes, this will be my callsign.

Thanks for the hint.
So I should bring the FT817ND because of the SSB capability.

EU008 ? Where does that come from?

Hi there,

Yes definitely take SSB capability emoticon

EU008 is internationally recognised IOTA (Islands on the air) designation for Isle of Skye. Every place which is a recognised island has a radio designation attached to it emoticon

This is why if you operate on SSB from 27555 as 108FB/EU008 you will attract a lot of calls, because many operators collect islands emoticon

Both to be honest, UK 40 probably still a bit busier than EU40
