Newbie Net 17 October Roll Call

Handheld MicrophoneThanks very much to everyone who took the time to join the informal newbie gathering on GB3DA last night.

Start time was 8pm, and we wrapped up at around 10:50pm – A total of 17 people joined the net at some point in the evening, which is the largest net I’ve been in. Here’s the roll call of the logged net voices from last night:

  • 2E0PSL – Pete in Southend
  • M6BDL – Ben from Bicknacre
  • M6PSK – Sarah from Southend
  • M6TET – Tony from Kent
  • M6KEB – Mike, mobile between Southend and Canvey
  • G7KSQ – Stuart from Bicknacre
  • M0MYR – Myra, mobile near Canvey
  • G3SVI – David, mobile near Canvey

  • M0FZW – Norman, mobile on Canvey
  • 2E0KFM – Andy in a van

  • 2E0EFX – Brian from Harlow
  • M6RFW – Peter from Stanford Le Hope
  • 2E0RMI – Jim in Chelmsford
  • 2E0EKF – Selim from Chigwell

The get-together was an attempt at helping get some of the more recently licensed operators to get on air and discuss their experiences – topics included: creating a QRZ page, using eQSL, the basics of WSPR and PSK31, HF antennas, and next steps in the hobby,. Also discussed, a QS) with Ben, one of the youngest operators on-air, plus some feedback on JOTA activities at the weekend.

eQSL cards have been sent to all contributors.

If anyone has any suggestions for topics for the next informal “newbie net” – please add a comment below.

73s for now…
