Zello Net

Thanks very much to Oscar 2E1HWE who was running what sounded like a very busy net on the Essex Ham Zello channel. Oscar called in to report that there were 13 stations taking part, including stations in South Africa and Ohio, as well as closer to home in Mansfield, Nottingham and Leeds. A few mic-shy people sitting on the side too. There’ll be another one this coming Thursday at 8pm. See: Essex Ham Zello Channel.
