|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, September 20, 2015. The fox was hidden in Wolf Lake Park in west central Broward County. Phil (KI4DYS) and Ray (KB4HAY) were well hidden deep in the park. The first finder was Bill (WA4TEJ) who took two hours and 20 minutes to find them. Stu (KD4JSD) came in shortly thereafter. Phil and Ray were so well hidden that Bill and Stu did not beat the 2 hour deadline and so Ray and Phil won the hunt and will hide the next fox on Sunday, December 6, 2015. This hunt will be held in the memory of Bud Bell, KE4ZZM. 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!!
The Flamingo Net annual dinner, the UP4WUE (you pay for what you eat) dinner took place in the Hollywood Piccadilly Cafateria on Sunday evening October 25, 2015. The meeting was well-attended by Fred (N4YQT), Stu (KD4JSD) and XYL Ressa, Ray (KB4HAY), Larry (KA4IQI), Scott (WN2DTK) and his brother Steven, and Bill (WA4TEJ), and much was discussed. See the What's New Page for details.
Our next free flea (in memory of Dora Dixon, K4CYF) will be on Saturday morning April 16, 2016 in the Physics Parking Lot, 5101 San Amaro Drive, at the U. of Miami Coral Gables Campus. Talk-in on the K4AG repeater, 147.150 (+6, PL 94.8). Starts at 7:00 AM and goes to noon.
A Picnic/BBQ will follow the Free Flea at noon on Saturday April 16, 2016. It will be held in Brewer Park, just west of the U. M. campus on Miller (just beyond 62nd Ave.).
