Monday Net 24 Dec 2012 Summary

Handheld MicrophoneChristmas Eve, Monday the 24th of December 2012 saw another Monday Night Net. This took place on GB3DA, the local 2 metre repeater for Essex.

The Net nearly didn’t happen as no-one expressed any interest in a net via Twitter, and all was quiet on GB3DA despite calls from the Net Controller at 8pm.

Here’s the attendance list for this week’s net:

  1. Pete M0PSX in Southend,  in the chair
  2. James 2E1GUA in Chelmsford
  3. Norman M0FZW on Canvey Island
  4. Peter G1FOA in Chelmsford
  5. Tom 2E0TNC  in Tiptree
  6. Ken M6BZS in Eastwood
  7. Terry 2E0KIL in Chelmsford
  8. Gary G0BDY in Brentwood (briefly!)
  9. Dean M6BYF/A in Kent
  10. Brian G1KPS on Canvey
  11. John M3OJT from John in Kent

Topics for the evening as follows:

  • Rear-view car-mounted cameras
  • CB radio (Ken M6BZS is on the lookout for a CB rig)
  • Licence conditions – The “/A” prefix is good practice and is “recommended”, but not mandatory
  • Ham Radio Licence Conditions Quiz Night? Good idea!

Handy Links

  • Sample copy of the current licence: Ofcom Sample Licence
