didn't hear your whistles, but maybe my morse heard at your end....im having trouble adjusting the lever of injected tone so somewhat over modulating.

Sorry Steve, Nothing heard.

Lots of AM Italian stations coming in at the moment so low level signals are getting obliterated.

I'm closing down now.

Thanks for trying anyway

Thanks LS, better luck next time.

I was getting loads of noise, constantly at 4 to 5 on the meter. I did appear to get a reply, voice, but it was so distorted I don't even know what language it was.

Ham radio is a excellent choice for preppers but requires the licences.
In total honesty my personal preference is cb radio ,it's fairly cheap has good local effectiveness and very very simple .
No licence required which is the biggest obstacle along with the learning for those who just want a comm if shtf .
I've seen ssb mentioned many times as a excellent dx tool for UK and overseas .
The ssb 10/11 mtr radio is on my to buy list.
Not been on the air in months ,last I tried cept was dead ,in many ways that's good for those who wish to try contacting members via radio I presume.

A question regarding Ham radio.......lets say we have a receiver and can listen in ....in a scenario where the shtf could someone who has a licence ....give us updates if we knew how to receive their transmission ? for example Lightspeed = 8 am Monday on setting 9999...Steve = 12 noonTuesday on setting 8888 and on and on ......6 pm is emergency information only hams would decide who would broadcast.

I have a CB ....these are ok for local use last time i used it ....over twelve months ago ....some idiot from Newport...S Wales......was talking total bollocks about his battery ...and he would have to see someone from social services to help him buy a new one ? .......No i shit you not!.
The ability to laugh at yourself while you learn is a great attribute.

I like the survivalist prepper communication plan 333 channel 3 ,3 mins 3hourly time wise 300,600,900,1200 hrs.
It's very basic simple to remember.
Yes those who can use ham frequencies I'm sure all relay vital info if able. Those who ate like minded and ham is their hobby will no doubt be aware of the 333.

Don't underestimate cb ,single side band is very capable . I have a spot high up that provides me with cover and a cord in situ high over top branches I can raise my wire for ny handheld cb.
Many times I have contacted Fan Brycheiniog wales Sunday dx crew with my handheld and a rubber duck from brum from local high point.
Hope he got a new battery ,should keep him quiet.
