|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, June 15, 2014. The fox, WA4TEJ, was hidden in Washington Park, off Pembroke Road in Broward County. The first finders were Phil (KI4DYS) and Ray (KB4HAY). They will hide the next fox on a Sunday in late September or early October. See the What's New Page for more information. 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 next free flea will be on Saturday morning November 15th, 2014 in the Physics Parking Lot at the U. of Miami Coral Gables Campus.
A Picnic/BBQ will follow the Free Flea at noon on Saturday November 15th, 2014. It will be held in Brewer Park, just west of the U. M. campus.
The Flamingo Net UPay4WhatUEat dinner is scheduled for 6:00 PM Sunday, October 26th in the Hollywood Blvd. Piccadilly Cafateria.
The Flamingo Net Field Day Event on Saturday, June 28 (Field Day) was well attended by KA4IQI (Larry), KD4JSD (Stu) and KE4ZZM (Bud). KF4YW (Tony) called in on 10m and other 10m and 2m contacts were made - including some DX contacts on 10m during Field Day.
