Next Radio Practice Saturday, July 14, 2018

June 25th, 2018

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Please join me Saturday, July 14, 2018, from 1000 hours to 1200 hours, at Spreckels Lake, 36th Ave. & Fulton St. for our next radio practice.   Mark your calendars now.

This practice will be the start of our Ninth (9th) year at Spreckels Lake.  Who would have thought?

Our first radio practice was July 10, 2010, when 22 of you joined me at the Lake.

To all of you who have joined me at the Lake I am grateful to you for helping me keep this little radio practice going.

The radio practice is only 2 hours, once a month.

Some of you are regulars joining me month after month.

Some of you make it to the Lake when you can.

And there are some of you I would like to see more often.

I want all of you to be better radio operators, and most importantly to help others become better radio operators.

Bring a clipboard, paper, pencil/pen, your radio’s operating manual and your radio with battery fully charged.  Everyone will use their radio, ask questions and help each other.  Dress for the unpredictable San Francisco weather – bring two layers, hat and sunscreen.

Fun Fact About 2MCM:  I totaled up all the Alpha Net check-ins since July 10, 2010, (3 months of logs are missing ?#@$! ), through June 9th, 2018, and the total number of check-ins at the Lake is 1,032 ! ! !   That is a lot of check ins! 

Please join me at beautiful Spreckels Lake for the start of our Ninth (9th) Year!

73 (Best regards),

Peter McElmury AA6SF
