Next Radio Practice April 8, 2017

March 18th, 2017

2MCM Friends,

On Saturday March 11th we had another pretty darn good radio practice.

Eighteen radio operators by my count came to the Lake with their radios, ready to talk and enjoy the Sunshine!

I threw them a curve by changing the 2MCM Comm Plan. They helped each other program in the new 2MCM frequencies and then we all talked and talked!

“Helping each other” is what we do at 2MCM Radio Practices.

Our next 2MCM Radio Practice will be April 8th. So mark your calendars now!

Speaking of marking our calendars – the SF NERT City Wide Drill is scheduled for April 22nd.   For all of us ham radio NERTs this is a super opportunity to practice using our radios – for the very reason we got our licenses and radios.

RSVP now at:

If you are not a NERT you can help out by being a victim, which is a lot of fun and really helps the NERTs with their training. RSVP to be a victim at:

FYI: An RSVP also means lunch is provided!

If you haven’t been able to use your radio for some time, please come to the April 8th 2MCM Radio Practice. We can help you dust off the cobwebs.  Charge up the battery the night before.

If you are hesitating to sign up for the NERT City Wide Drill April 22nd, come to the April 8th 2MCM Radio Practice.  Most of us are NERTs and we can practice and build confidence for the drill.

Lastly, thank you all for your support. I know you come to the radio practices when you can. I am told there is really no other place in San Francisco to do what we do at 2MCM. Only one Saturday a month for only two hours, yet we accomplish a lot.

I hope to see you at the Lake,
