Topics for the evening, as follows:

  • London Hackspace – Mitchell joined them at their last club event
  • The Nepal Earthquake traffic
  • The ERG 6M repeater GB3DB is now back on-air
  • Charlie M0PZT’s talk at CARS on Tuesday
  • Foundation Light Licence – giving UHF licences to kids
  • SEARS activating Rayleigh Windmill this coming Sunday
  • May The Fourth be with you – It’s Star Wars Day

As an experiment, this week’s Net was streamed using a new iOS Twitter app called Periscope – A surprising number of people hooked up via this service to see Pete M0PSX running the net live, and to take a look behind the scenes. Not sure if we’ll be in a rush to repeat it, as it was a little distracting, but an interesting experiment nonetheless.
