Essex 2m Activity March 2019

Saturday the 16th of March 2019 was another Essex 2m Activity Afternoon. The event is organised by the Thurrock Acorns, and Essex Ham is a big supporter of the concept.

This was one of the busier Activity Afternoons, with 5 club callsign active supporting the event. The WX killed plans for several Essex Hams to get out-and-about. Plans for Shoebury Beach, Galleywood and Radar Hill were all abandoned, so everyone stayed in the warm operating various modes, including simplex, SSTV, a rather busy net on GB3DA, and even some FT8.

Great to hear so many people on air, with a special mention to to Essex Ham member Edmund M0MNG, who trekked to Dettling Hill to make contact. He’s even put together a video:

The Essex Ham club callsign got a bit of an airing. Here’s a copy of the log:
