Brilliant news hits the blog and that’s the PMR DX men will be out and about from the mountains for the 2016 Nocni Stafeta (2016 Night Relay) also known as a network on the CB bands. This has been going 14 years + and it’s extremely good fun. Just get the PMR radio, head to the mountains of the Czech and Slovak Republics and shout and see how far you get
What is sure the event will be excellent, having taken place in many of them and as well as the north of Czech Republic I’ve activated on mountains from the south of the country (Pancir) and also from Poland, the mountains near Kudowa Drój which all were great fun. Easy distances of 100, 200, 220 and as far as 250km possible with the 500mw and fixed antenna although some these days use Baofeng or indeed standard radios with modified antenna. But it’s good fun. Anyone can take part and the most important it suits each and every wallet size.
