Next Radio Practice

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our next radio practice will be February 9, 2019, again at Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hours to 1200 hours.

Our first radio practice of 2019, January 12th, was excellent!  We had no rain, there were sunny blue skies, with no wind, and the green benches were dry.

12 radio operators joined me – a good mix of new and experienced radio operators.

We first talked about sending messages, programming frequencies, and then formed teams to send and receive messages.  We were done by 1200 hours.

Join me next month, February 9th..  You will talk on your radio, receive (copy) messages and send messages (traffic).  Experienced radio operators will be there to answer questions and help you with your radio and radio protocols.

Bring your radio with a fully charged battery, it’s operating manual, a clipboard, paper, pencil/pen.  Dress for the predictably unpredictable San Francisco weather – bring two layers, hat and sunscreen.

I hope to see you at the Lake,

Peter McElmury AA6SF
