2 MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our next radio practice will be Saturday April 9, 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.

For this practice the main topic and radio practice will be: working as a volunteer radio operator at a special event such as a marathon, walk-a-thon or parade. We will discuss and practice how the Net Control Operator works, what Aid Station ROs do, what to bring, and different situations that might occur during a marathon or similar event.

We will talk on our radios.

If you have never participated as a volunteer radio operator at a special event, this will be a good opportunity to practice operating your radio.

For those of you who have experience we need you to join in and help the others at this radio practice.

Coincidentally the San Francisco Radio Club is providing radio communications on Saturday May 21st for the Bay Area Brain Tumor Walk. The SF Radio Club needs radio volunteers for this special event. Contact Robert Klahn at to volunteer. You can ask to be paired with an experienced radio operator. The walk location is Crissy Field and this will be a great opportunity to use your radio and help your community. For info on the walk go to:

Mark July 31st on your calendars for The San Francisco Marathon. The SF Radio Club will also be proving radio communication for this special event.

I look forward to seeing you at the Lake .

Best regards,

Peter McElmury AA6SF
