In the Fareham area, there’s a number of repeaters you can listen to and access reasonably well.
If you’re new to amateur radio, listening to a repeater is a reasonable way to get started as they’re usually active at some point during the day and are fairly easy to pick up on even a handheld radio outdoors, possibly upstairs. If you’re an SWL, you generally don’t need to worry about CTCSS or shift as you’re not transmitting.
