Next Radio Practice Saturday, April 13, 2019

March 17th, 2019

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Our next radio practice will be Saturday, April 13, 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 appreciated 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 1000 hrs; or, check-in as you are driving to the Lake and again when you arrive at the Lake.  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.

The March radio practice was rained out. Hopefully for the April practice we will have Sunny Spring skies.

FYI: SF NERTs Spring Citywide Drill is scheduled for April 20, 2019.  Sign up on line.

I hope to see at the Lake,
