Keep those radio batteries charged, and remember:

Next Practice: 7/20/13

July 1st, 2013

Greetings 2 Meter Radio Practice Friends,


Our next radio practice will be Saturday July 20, 2012, again at Spreckels Lake from 1000hrs to 1200hrs.

I was down at the lake today and my son Danny took a couple pictures.

Join me and other ham radio friends. Besides talking on our radios we can say “I was there when they drained Spreckels Lake”.

We will also be treated to a “tour” of the ultimate mobile ham radio station – John N0ZEN’s Jeep.

The weather has been awesome, no powerboats, talk on your radio, help another ham, and get ideas for your own mobile station.

Put your radio in the charger the night before and as the Aussies say “Slip-Slop-Slap” (slip on a long sleeved shirt, slop on sunscreen and slap on a hat) as the sun can be intense at the lake this time of year.
