Next Radio Practice Saturday, March 10, 2018

February 23rd, 2018

Greetings 2MCM Friends,

Our next Radio Practice will be Saturday, March 10, 2018.

We will meet again at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hrs. to 1200 hrs. It’s a good idea to arrive 10 to 20 minutes early.

Bring your radio with the battery fully charged, a clipboard, paper/pencil, and your radio’s operator’s manual. Dress for the predictably unpredictable weather.  And bring your questions.  There is always someone to help and to answer questions.

Last month there were 13 of us at the Lake under clear skies- a warm and sunny morning.  Lots of room for more of you, incase you were worried about it being crowded.

After everyone checked in to the Alpha Net we broke up into 3 teams – Bravo, Delta and Foxtrot – to send and receive messages. The emphasis of the messages was on the phonetic alphabet.  The Team structure insures you will be with someone who will help.

Please join us on March 10th – if you haven’t used your radio in a while, if you want more practice using your radio, or if you want to help other radio operators improve their radio skills.

I look forward to you joining me at the Lake.

P.S.:  KQED is having a one-hour special, Mister Rogers: It’s You I Like, to celebrate the late children’s television icon and his show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.  Mark your calendars now for  March 6, at 8PM on KQED 9.
