Monday Night Net 05 Feb 2018

Monday Night Net MNN LogoThe Essex Ham Monday Night Net for the 5th February 2018 started at 8pm local time on GB3DA, the 2m 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

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.
