Next Radio Practice Saturday 11/10/2018

October 31st, 2018

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our Next radio practice will be:  Saturday, November 10, 2018, at Spreckels Lake, 36th Ave & Fulton, from 1000 hrs to 1200 hrs.    Bring a clipboard, paper, pencil/pen, your radio’s operating manual and your radio with battery fully charged.  Everyone will use their radio and be encouraged to ask questions and help each other.  Dress for the unpredictable San Francisco weather – bring two layers, hat and sunscreen.  No experience with ham radio is needed.

Last month there were 14 radio operators at the Lake, the Sun came out, and we had another beautiful day to use our radios and help each other.

We sent messages that were quotes from legendary baseball player and coach Casey Stengel. Like: “ I never said most the things I said.” “We made too many wrong mistakes.”

For those of you who are SF NERTs, check out the NERT website.  Take advantage of the free training held 3rd Saturday’s at DOT.  Do you need to Re-Certify? Plan ahead.

Do you have a friend who wants to get an FCC license?  I understand Saturday January 12th, is scheduled for the BAEARS HAM CRAM study & testing session to be held at St Mary’s Cathedral. Email them to be notified of date / time for the next Ham Cram. Pre-registration is requested.  Their website is not yet updated for this session.   Pay attention to the Session Preparation Info page.

I look forward to seeing you at the Lake.
