Monday Night Net 02 Sep 2019

Monday Night Net MNN LogoThe Essex Ham Monday Night Net for the 2nd of September 2019 started at 8pm local time on GB3ER (as GB3DA is still down), the 70cm repeater located at Danbury, near Chelmsford.

Our Monday Night Net launched back in 2011 and is still going strong. Everyone’s welcome to join, especially those who’ve recently got their licence and are looking for help with getting started in the hobby.

If you’re new to our Monday Night Net, you can find more information here: Monday Night Net

Thanks to Dorothy for running the net this evening – makes a change to have you running our Monday net, not the YL net.

On this page, you’ll find a quick summary of who joined this week’s net, and what was discussed.

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.
