News for England South East – 28 September 2014

| September 26, 2014

A Friday evening net is being launched in the Norwich area on 3 October for newer licensed members of the local amateur community to get on the air and discuss topics important for them. The net will be run by Nigel, 2E0NLK using the GB3NB repeater and will commence at 7.30pm for one hour. Everyone will be welcome to join but the main intention is to encourage younger members who are perhaps tied up with school work on other evenings. Initially this will be on a trial basis for the whole of October. If there is sufficient support Nigel will continue and encourage a rota of operators to become controllers and establish the net as an on-going event.
