If you want to read the articles in full, without having to wait for your copy of RadCom to pop through your letterbox, take a look in the Essex Ham Members section for a PDF version of the ‘Around Your Region’ section.

Well done to all of the clubs in Essex for their hard work at field events and club nights around the county – great that amateurs in Essex are keeping busy and getting noticed.
