Another cracking video of this years 'Big Net', celebrating 37 years of legal CB radio in the UK. This time from Fred In The Shed in the South East of England. Great to see that his first contact was with a 'new' breaker, just goes to show that events like this encourage new and returning stations to pick up the mic as well as encouraging existing breakers to get on the air more often. 

Hopefully new friendships are created thus boosting activity across the bands....!

On Friday 2nd November 2018 the UK celebrated 37 years of legal CB radio. 

'The Big Net' is an annual event which always proves to be very popular. Indeed, here in the North East of England channel 37 was absolutely buzzing and several other nets popped up on other channels due to 37 being so overcrowded.

Myself, after an hour or so on channel 37 talking to loads of stations on FM, I ended up on mid band SSB with a net stretching across Northumberland, Durham, Teeside and Tyne and Wear.

Anyway here's a video from Jason in the South West of England. He say's it wasn't as busy as he expected it would be in his part of the world, but the video still shows that there was no shortage of stations taking to the air!!!
