Next Radio Practice: September 8, 2018

August 24th, 2018

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our Next meeting will be:  Saturday, September 8, 2018, at Spreckels Lake, 36th Ave & Fulton, from 1000 hrs. to 1200 hrs.

Bring a clipboard, paper, pencil/pen, your radio’s operating manual, your radio with battery fully charged, and a folding chair if you have one.  Everyone will use their radio, ask questions and help each other.  Dress for the unpredictable San Francisco weather – bringing an extra layer, hat and sunscreen.

Here is a RECAP of last month’s radio practice – Saturday, August 11, 2018:      For our last radio practice there were 23 of us at The Presidio of San Francisco Main Post Lawn.  The sky was blue, the Sun shined down on us, and it was a little windy.      Everyone checked into the Alpha Net, with Joe WA3TSP as Net Control and Joan WA3TSS assisting.      Robert AD6I talked to us about the SFRC 2 Meter QSO party to be run on Saturday August 25, 2018, from 10AM to 2PM. Then we all practiced and simulated a QSO Party!

We made new friends, got help when we needed it and helped others.

For details on the SFRC 2M QSO Party go to:

For the 2M QSO Party tune into one, or more, or all of these 2M frequencies on Saturday August 25th, and make some contacts:

(You may need to step outside, and/or go to high ground, using High Power.)
