|Welcome To The Flamingo Net!
The Flamingo Net is a south Florida amateur radio club. We have been active since 1954 as a social group for Hams. Most of our activity takes place on the ten meter band, but we also use two meters.
We meet on the air each Friday night, starting on 29.044 MHz at 7:30 PM Eastern time. At 7:45, we move to the Broward repeater, 146.910 MHz (-.6, PL 110.9). At 7:55 we go south to the K4AG repeater, 147.150 MHz (+.6, PL 94.8). At 8:00, we return to ten meters on 28.444 MHz. We welcome check-ins!
Our activities include hosting Free Fleas (jointly with the UMARC) on the third Saturdays in April and November. These are held in the Physics parking lot of the University of Miami Coral Gables campus. We also hold BBQ's, picnics and dinners at various times throughout the year. We also hold lost transmitter (FOX) hunts (on both ten meters and two meters).
This site was constructed on April 18, 2003. I will try to keep it updated as to recent or upcoming activity.
The Flamingo Net held a 2m Vehicular Fox Hunt on Sunday morning January 13, 2019. The fox was hidden in Lake Shore City Park in Miramar. The winning team was KB4HAY/KI4DYS. More hunt details are on the What's New page. Our next hunt should be in late April or early May. These hunts, like most of our events, are open to EVERYONE (not just Flamingo Net members), so come to the hunt and find out how much FUN they are!!
Our Flamingo Net Free Flea will be held on April 27, 2019 in the tennis parking lot at Tropical Park, 7900 S.W. 40 Street (Bird Road). The entrance to the lot is on your left, 1/4 mile in from the Bird Road entrance.
The Picnic / BBQ following the flea will take place in shelter 2 at Tropical Park (at around noon).
