Greetings 2 Meter Radio Practice Friends:

Our next radio practice will be Saturday, June 13, 2015, 1000 hrs to 1200 hrs, at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton.

Check-in will be by radio at the Lake on 146.550 PL 100 simplex.

The main topic and radio practice will be: working as a volunteer radio operator at a marathon.  We will discuss and practice how the net control operator works, what aid station ROs do, what to bring, and different incidents that might occur during a marathon or similar event.  Everyone will get a chance to talk on their radios, sending and receiving traffic.

If you have never participated as a volunteer radio operator and want to, this is for.

If you have experience, we need you with us to Elmer or Wilma.

Also at the lake Jeff KK6JJZ will have his radio set up on the knoll, to the South of us, working the ARRL June VHF Contest. .  Join him over there to learn about the contest. If you ask him, he will hand you the mic for an opportunity to get on the air and make a contact.

I hope to see you at the lake.


Peter McElmury AA6SF
