ARRL Field Day & next 2MCM Radio Practice

June 19th, 2019 by Peter Leave a reply »

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Saturday June 22 the San Francisco Radio Club will be hosting the ARRL Field Day 2019 at Fort Mason!  This year it will be a single day event. 

Setup begins at 8:15am Saturday and the club will be on the air by 11:00am that morning.  Continuous radio operations will conclude around 6-7pm that night.

Come early and help set up their radio operation –  antennas, power equipment, tent, etc.

Go to the club’s website to learn more and see a map of Fort Mason and the Field Day location:

I will be there and I hope to see many of you there.

Our next 2MCM Radio Practice will be Saturday, July 13, 2019, again at Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hours to 1200 hours. 

This radio practice will mark the beginning of our 10th year at the Lake!  Imagine that!

If it is your first time or you haven’t been to the Lake in a while – arrive 15 or 20 minutes early to get oriented.

There are always experienced radio operators to help and we greatly appreciate them for joining us at the Lake.

For check-ins we now use the SFRC W6PW repeater, 145.150 (-) DCS 664. 

Check-ins from stations not at the Lake are welcome beginning at approx. 1000 hours. Listen to the Net Control Operator for instructions. The Net on this frequency will close about 1030 hours.

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 at the Lake,

Peter McElmury AA6SF
