    Some of our members may be familiar with the concept of the Hackspace, sometimes known as a Makerspace. These are community venues designed to encourage construction, learning and collaboration. There is a network of
    70 Hackspaces in the UK, and from this month, theres a new Hackspace in
    Essex, the East Essex Hackspace, in Hockley.
    What can you expect to find at this Hackspace?

    Quite a lot, including metal & wood workshop facilities, a computer lab
    with an electronics workbench, 3D printers, a laser cutter and a social
    space to meet and learn. Its an impressive setup, especially for those with
    an interest in making, which obviously is of interest to many radio
    Interested in finding out more?

    The launch of the East Essex Hackspace is Saturday the 18th of September
    2021 at 11am, and all are welcome to come along and take a look at the
    countrys newest active Hackspace.

    Essex Ham will be running a special event station, GB0EEH, to support their launch. Well be active on HF and VHF to demonstrate amateur radio to
    Hackspace members and visitors on their launch day.

    If youre interested in coming along, the address is as follows:

    East Essex Hackspace

    Hawkwell Pavilion

    Park Gardens


    SS5 4HF
    Outside the East Essex Hackpace in Hockley

    For more on the Hackspace, go to the East Essex Hackspace Wiki.

    GB0EEH is part of Hackspace launch activities, and the space we’ve been allocated for antennas is limited. All are welcome to attend, but we only
    have room for two stations, so no need to bring antennas or equipment
    (although if you’re operating, it’s fine to bring your own radio to be swapped when you’re on-air for Covid reasons)The post East Essex Hackspace Launches 18 Sept 2021 first appeared on Essex Ham.
