Not The Monday Net – Sunday 1st March

Those tuning in to GB3DA on Sunday the 1st of March 2015 would have found it a little more busy than usual – Four new Essex licencees got their licence last Friday, and were airing their shiny new callsigns. It quickly turned into a net and the controller at the time, Chris (aka KOLT) handed over the hotseat to Pete M0PSX.

The result? Almost 4 hours of net, with 14 members… Makes a change to have a busy net on a Sunday… and anyone stumbling across GB3DA might have thought that Monday had come along a day early.

Rather than being an Essex Ham net, this became the “Sunday Night KOLT Net” – and a good fun gathering it was… free from disclaimers!
