Monday Night Mini-Net 16 January 2017

Monday Night Net MNN LogoOn the third Monday of the month, there’s normally no Essex Ham Monday Night Net, as many of the usual net regulars are in Danbury for the Essex Skills Night.

Whilst the January 2017 Skills Night was in full effect, Rachel G6AMY kindly sat in the chair and ran a mini-net (Rachel’s Rag-chew?) on GB3DA, the 2m repeater located just a few hundred yards away from the Essex Skills Night.

Live Chat: During the Net, we run an Internet chatroom. Go to to get chatting during our nets – You need to create a free Essex Ham account to access our chatroom.
Internet Feed: Not in range of the GB3DA? Several Internet feeds are available, including: Essex Ham’s Audio Feed (not always online) or the Monday Night Net uStream (Thanks to Nick M0NFE). On a Smartphone, try SouthEastRadio on Zello
