Monday Night Nets in 2019

As 2019 draws to an end, we’d like to thank all Essex Ham members who’ve taken part in one of our weekly nets, as well as the Essex YL Net.

The Monday Night Net launched in October 2011. Essex Ham’s Net has now become a regular on-air meeting place for both newly-licensed hams as well as experienced amateur radio operators, and enables local hams to share information, ask for advice, and get to meet new voices. We believe we are one of the busiest nets in the Essex area, and that’s down to the support of net regulars.
