Amateur radio operators in Essex, UK have decided to address the issue of a lack of activity in the 2m band, by planning an activity day to promote use of the band.
One of the clubs who will be involved is the Thurrock Acorns ARC, who are arranging an afternoon of activities between 1-4pm on Saturday 28th March 2015.
Thurrock Acorns will be operating using their club call operating during this time, hoping to work other amateurs across Essex.
The team from Thurrock are hoping to get help from other groups in the Essex area to try to get as many people on-air as possible, and will be supported by Essex Ham.
