2 Meter Critical Mass Friends,

The Great California Shake Out of 2016 is almost here. I have again registered the 2 Meter Critical Mass Amateur Radio Practice as a Volunteer Radio Group whose members will plan, practice and participate in The Great Shake Out Earthquake Drills.

While 2MCM is not holding a group Drop, Cover and Hold On practice, we can practice on our own and participate on October 20th with our co-workers, our family, or on our own.

Do this for me:

* Go to: http://shakeout.org/california/howtoparticipate/

* Register to participate as an individual or for your entire family by picking a category. I registered 2MCM under Volunteer Radio Groups. And I registered my wife Pat & I under Individuals/Families.

* Search through the website for useful information on being prepared.

* Take a look at this printable 12-page booklet for the Bay Area: http://www.earthquakecountry.org/downloads/StayingSafeWhereTheEarthShakes_BayAreaEdition.pdf

* On Thursday October 20th at 10:20 am Drop, Cover and Hold On.

It is not official yet, but SF ACS may hold a net on WA6GG 442.050 (+) T 127.3 at 10:21 a.m. on October 20th for all radio operators who have “participated”.

I hope to see you at the 2MCM Radio Practice August 13th.  We will all get to talk on our radios, get help or help someone.
