Next Radio Practice Sat. Oct 12, 2019

October 1st, 2019

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our next radio practice will be Saturday, October 12, 2019, again at Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hours to 1200 hours. 

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. You will get to talk on your radio, send, and receive messages. Isn’t that why we got our licenses?

San Francisco NERT radio operators can use this practice to get ready for the October 19 City Wide Drill.

For radio practice 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, a hat and sunscreen.

I hope to see you at the Lake,

Peter McElmury AA6SF
