Next Practice December 12, 2015

November 30th, 2015

Greetings 2 Meter Critical Mass Radio Practice Friends,

Our next practice will be on December 12th, again at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hrs to 1200 hrs.

As a follow up to the last two practices we will talk about and practice: sending & receiving messages and working as net control operator. You will get a chance to send a message, receive a message and be a Net Control Operator. Experienced Radio Operators, and Radio Operators who need experience will benefit from this practice.

An Elmer or Wilma will be there to help you with your radio.

It may be cold – so, dress warmly, charge up you radio’s battery, bring a clipboard, pencil and paper. And bring a lightweight-folding chair if you have one.

We will meet at the green benches at the West end of Spreckels Lake.

I hope to see you there.

Best regards,

Peter McElmury AA6SF

Recap: November 14th Practice

2 Meter Critical Mass San francisco Spreckels Lake

These Four Wilmas joined me at Spreckels Lake for our Communications Exercise.  On November 14th at Spreckels Lake there were twenty of us sending messages that were relayed by Packet Radio to the Auxiliary Communications radio team as part of their own quarterly drill.  This 2MCM radio practice was even better than the one we held in October.
