Calling all hams! Attention all stations, attention all stations:

The Marin Amateur Radio Society is partnering with the long-established San Francisco Two-Meter Critical Mass to create a monthly opportunity for Marin and Sonoma hams to get together and practice radio protocol. Michael Fischer K6MLF, Doug Slusher KF6AKU, and other local experienced hams will be there with an entertaining program. 10am until noon on the third Sunday of each month, beginning on August 19th.

The North Bay Two-Meter Critical Mass sessions will be most useful for newly-licensed amateur radio operators. But it’s also a chance for experienced hams to gather and learn new tips. And to become an Elmer to assist those hams who are just learning how to operate their new radios.

Please come to join us—here’s the basic information:


What: An opportunity to practice Ham radio communications
When: 3rd Sunday of the month, 1000 hrs to 1200 hrs
Where: Marin County Civic Center Lagoon, SE corner near the fountain. Civic Center Drive and Armory Road—park in the Jury Parking lot there. See below for details!
Who: Licensed Amateur Radio Operators, any experience level, bring your radio and manual, paper and pencil
Why: There are not many opportunities to practice with your radio; so come to the Lagoon to practice, learn from an Elmer or be an Elmer
How: Use your radio, practice with other Hams; learn more about your radio and Amateur Radio Communications

What’s more fun than being with other Amateur Radio enthusiasts of varying experience levels talking on the radio?

So, come on out. Be an Elmer. Ask an Elmer for help.
That’s what Amateur Radio is all about.
