Welcome To The Playground Amateur Radio Club!
Do you monitor 146.52 and 446.00 MHz simplex? They are national calling frequencies. Give a call on the highway, monitor at home.
A suggestion: Many of us scan all the time. When you call someone, announce the frequency you’re on…. “on 52″ or “on 79″. Sometimes the scan function kicks in before we can see where it was…. of course if the beep is unique like the one on “120″, then….
We are always soliciting ideas for “tech night” presentations. Have an idea? Let us know. And remember, the doctor is always in on “tech night”, so bring your questions to the meeting.
If you are going to be in the local area take a look at the Visiting Amateurs page for information on the club and activities.
