Sat. February 12, 2016 – Next Radio Practice

February 29th, 2016

2 MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our next radio practice will be Saturday March 12th, 2016, at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hours to 1200 hours.
At this practice we will continue to provide amateur radio operators an opportunity to practice using their radios; sending, receiving, changing frequencies.  There will be someone to answer your questions.
Last month for our February 13th practice there were fourteen of us. The weather was clear and sunny. Everyone got an opportunity to use their radios to send messages and listen to how others send messages.
For the March 12th practice we will again talk about message handling and maybe even talk about squelch and tone; and get answers to questions.
** Regarding questions, I am  asking everyone to bring one question about a ham term or piece of equipment.
Mark your calendars, charge up your radio’s battery, bring paper and pencil and join me at Spreckels Lake.
All radio operators are welcome to this practice and exercise.  Invite a friend to join you.

Best regards,

Peter McElmury AA6SF
