The Santa Fun Run was the last event of a busy year for Essex RAYNET, and as with all charity events, it makes for a great training opportunity on how to make effective use of amateur radio to help the community. If you’re interested in putting your radio skills to good use, what not consider joining the Essex RAYNET team in 2018?
