Monday Night Net 01 July 2019

Monday Night Net MNN LogoThe Essex Ham Monday Night Net for the 1st of July 2019 started at 8pm local time on GB3DA, the 2m repeater located at Danbury, near Chelmsford.

Our Monday Night Net launched back in 2011 and is still going strong. Everyone’s welcome to join, especially those who’ve recently got their licence and are looking for help with getting started in the hobby.

Thanks to Dorothy for running the net this evening – makes a change to have you running our Monday net, not the YL net.

Live Chat: During the Net, we run an Internet chatroom. Go to to get chatting during our nets – You need to create a free Essex Ham account to access our chatroom.
