Topics for the evening, as follows:

In tonight’s net, here’s what was discussed:

  • The next 2m activity afternoon is on the 19th of November, organised by the Thurrock Acorns
  • A look back at last week’s busy Skills Night
  • JOTA weekend –  a look at the various scouting events, including the activity weekend at Belchamps
  • We might be in for some unexpected, and perhaps not helpful,PR later this week – a Channel 5 show about living next door to a chap who’s an amateur
  • Working with 4 metres. Thanks to David M1ECC for starting off the topic of 4m and how to get started. Remember, there’s now a weekly net on 4m, courtesy of Selim M0XTA

Thanks to everyone who took part in the busy net… Happy Hamming!
