Monday Night Net 11 Mar 13

Handheld MicrophoneHere’s a summary of the activity on the Essex Ham Monday Night Net this evening, Monday 11 March 2013.

Due to a problem with the net’s normal home of GB3DA, the net has moved to the Danbury UHF Repeater GB3ER. Details:

  • Output Frequency: 433.075MHz
  • Input Frequency: 434.675MHz
  • CTCSS Tone: 110.9Hz

The net started at 8:00pm on GB3ER, the local 70cm repeater for Essex. For details of the net, see

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

  1. Pete M0PSX in Southend, in the chair
  2. Ian M6IDG in Hockley
  3. Mark M0IEO on Canvey
  4. Belinda M6JNX on Canvey
  5. Joel G0URK in Chelmsford (briefly)

Topics for the evening as follows:

  • Driving your HF rig from a computer (interfaces for Windows 8 are hard to find)
  • International Space Station Contact: 07:35am tomorrow (Tue 12nd March). Listen on 145.800MHz to hear an orbiting astronaut.

No great conditions for a net, so we wrapped up just after 9pm, and carried on chatting informally for a bit. Hopefully back to normal next week…
