Several tables were set up for the evening, which is aimed at those looking to get more from the hobby, and who are looking for something different from a traditional club night. We caught up with Mike G1KOT to find out more – his interview features on the following video:

The January 2019 Progression Night included regulars such as the club station and a bring-and-buy table, as well as demos by club members.

Andrew M0ONH had a table at the event to launch his new venture, Hamtronics.uk – a new online store for kits and accessories. His first project kit is the ‘Repeater Timeout Kit’, which was being demoed on the Essex Ham table.

Essex Ham’s table included a working demo of the GQRX SDR running on a Raspberry Pi, a scrolling demo of various data modes, a selection of our “Getting Started Guides, and a display of a few legacy Psion Organisers (discussed recently on GB3DA). As above, we also demoed  Andrew M0-ONH’s latest creation, the Repeater Timeout Kit.
