Next Radio Practice Sat. March 9

February 25th, 2019

2MCM Radio Practice Friends,

Yikes! Time Flies – and another radio practice!

Our next radio practice will be March 9, 2019, again at Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park, 36th Ave. and Fulton St., from 1000 hours to 1200 hours.

Our February 9th radio practice started out with Sunny skies. 

17 radio operators checked into the 2MCM Net, using the SFRC Sutro Tower Repeater. 

11 of us didn’t believe the weather reports and checked in from Sunny Spreckels Lake.

6 checked in from their cozy homes, including one from Corte Madera.

There were newly licensed ROs who connected quickly with experienced ROs. 

Then, at 1100 hours the sky went dark, I noticed a couple ROs leaving, and then it started to rain.

The Check-In Net Control operators Lorrie KJ6SFP & Peter KF7MFN were still taking check-ins.  The last one was from Dave, call sign not legible on the wet log.

Join me Saturday, February 9th at the Lake.

Experienced radio operators will be there to answer questions and help you with your radio and radio protocols.

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.  Umbrella? 

I hope to see you at the Lake,

Peter McElmury AA6SF
