What’s Essex Ham Doing Wrong?

Essex Ham Podcast LogoIn the last couple of weeks, we’ve had some interesting feedback passed our way about what Essex Ham’s been up to.

One comment received here is that we’re too visible. At first, this struck us as an odd comment – one of Essex Ham’s aims is to get more people aware of amateur radio, and key to this is raising awareness of the hobby, and what amateurs in Essex get up to.

“Essex Ham is Everywhere”

That’s what we’ve been told. It seems that the Essex Ham name has been cropping up frequently. We’ve been told that:

Radcom: Amateur Radio in Essex
Radcom: Amateur Radio in Essex
  • When searching for amateur radio content, Essex Ham keeps coming up
  • Articles written by, or featuring Essex Ham’s team keep appearing in the media.
  • People online or on nets keep on mentioning Essex Ham

We’ve been lucky that we have had some coverage of some of the events in Essex of late, including the SEARS ISS schools contact, JOTA, Essex Air Ambulance Special Event and the CARS Skills Nights.

Some of the Essex Ham team and our members have been featured in both the mainstream media and in publications such as Radcom and Practical Wireless. We’ve assumed that the PR for the clubs in Essex and amateur radio in the county could only be a good thing… but could it be that we’re too involved?

Essex Ham started out to support amateur radio in Essex, help out newbies, and to support the activities of local groups. So, how are we doing, and do we need to change? Here’s a quick poll:
