Next Practice: May 17th, 2014

May 4th, 2014

Our next radio practice will be on Saturday, May 17, 2014, from 1000 hrs to 1200 hrs, again at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park.

We will practice Checking into a Net.

If you have been meaning to “check into a net”, but have put it off, this will be your chance to practice, learn and Elmer.

San Francisco has several weekly nets.  Checking into nets is a way to practice using our radios, learn if we can “hit” a repeater, or if on simplex, learn who we can talk to in the city and who we can’t.

On Saturday May 17th we will practice several different types of nets, learn the preferred protocols and learn the days and times for local nets.

Please bring information on all the nets you know about so we can compile a list.  If you participate regularly in a net this will be a chance to introduce it to more hams.

Bring a clipboard, paper, pencil, a folding chair if you like, your radio’s operating manual, put your radio in the charger the night before and come a little early.  Everyone will get a chance to talk on their radios and help others.

I hope to see your there.

Best regards,

Peter McElmury KI6NYQ
