This Sunday, 1/26/2020, from 10AM to 2PM Pacific Time (1800 -> 2200 UTC), we will hold a Special Event Station in memory of our friend, Peter McElmury, AA6SF SK. The event will be held over the W6PW VHF (2 Meter) repeater, 145.150MHz/-/DCS 664/FM Mode. Please join us and share your memories of Peter
We have a great presentation for you to start 2020. Greg W2GMD and Kiley KD8DRX are leading an effort to create an independent wireless mesh network across the city of San Francisco. This will support off-the-grid data exchange, video and telephone services in case of an emergency. The SFWEM project has a ton of traction right now with nodes popping up daily. Don't miss it.
Last year we established a nice cadence on helping hams with their radios or projects. We are planning to continue this year so bring your radio, your project and let's figure it out together.
It is the time of the year where we ask for your support in renewing your membership with the club. Throughout the year the club is funding a number of important initiatives including the upkeep of our repeater systems and events such as our Field Day. Your membership participation and optional donation is keeping the club operational.
The San Francisco Radio Club has been invited back to manage the Communications Team for the 37th Annual Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Half Marathon 10K & 5K. We will appreciate your assistance for this event! Great preparation for our SF Marathon event in July. All hams experienced or not are welcomed to participate.
The San Francisco Radio Club will be participating, second year in a row, in the Winter Field Day event taking place at Fort Mason on January 25th!
Our operational skills should not be limited to fair weather scenarios. The addition of Winter Field Day is an opportunity to enhance those already important skills.
This is why WFD is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide. Disasters are unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them. WFDA's goal is to help enhance your skills and ready you for all environmental conditions found in the US and Canada during the spring, summer, fall and winter Preparedness is the key to a professional and timely response during any event and this is what local and state authorities are expecting when they reach out us for help.
Every Monday night, for 30+ years now, we operate a NET, at 8pm sharp, on our Sutro VHF repeater (repeater details here). This is an opportunity for new ham operators to try their radios and get on the air. It is also our weekly drill to ensure that our equipment (mobiles, HTs and repeaters) are in good working order and ready in case of an emergency. Please join us!
