Essex 2m Activity Day 19 March 2022

Essex 2m Activity EventThis weekend, Saturday the 19th of March 2022 is another chance for amateurs across Essex to inject some life into 2m, as it’s another Essex 2m Activity Afternoon.

The event is organised by the Thurrock Acorns club, in the hope that clubs and amateurs across the county will get on-air. As usual, the Essex 2m Activity event will be supported by Essex Ham, as we fully support the aims of the scheme.

Get on the air!

The event runs from 1pm till 5pm on Saturday the 19th of March, and we’d ask amateurs in and around Essex to get on to 2m and show your support.

Come and see us

Essex Ham will be out for the afternoon at the East Essex Hackspace in Hockley – All are welcome to attend, especially any newcomers in the area that want to get hands-on with some amateur radio kit. The address is:

East Essex Hackspace
Hawkwell Pavilion
Park Gardens

All are welcome to attend and there’s free parking, but we only have room for one station, which will be a 2m station for the “Essex 2m Activity Day”, so please don’t bring along your equipment (although if you’re operating, it’s fine to bring your own 2m radio to be swapped when you’re on-air for Covid reasons)

Below is a short video showing what the East Essex Hackspace is all about:
