Monday Night Net 16 Feb 2015

Handheld Microphone The Essex Ham Monday Night Net for 16 February 2015 took place on from 8:00pm local time on GB3DA, the 2m repeater located at Danbury, near Chelmsford.

Normally on the third Monday of the month, Essex Ham’s Monday Night Net is off-air, as the team and many of the participants are in Danbury for the Skills Night, hosted by CARS. This month though, James 2E1GUA very kindly stepped in to look after the Net, whilst the normal chair, Pete M0PSX was hosting the Skills Night.

Although somewhat of a more quiet net than usual, James did a great job of keeping the repeater warm, and some of the attendees were able to join on the way back, and even during the Skills Night. Keep scrolling for audio of one of the best guest messages I’ve heard on DA in a long while:
