|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, March 6, 2016. The fox, WA4TEJ, was hidden in the extreme east end of Elaine Gordon / Enchanted Forest Park on 135 Street just west of US-1. Fred, N4YQT came in first after one and a half hours of hunting, followed two minutes later by the team of KB4HAY, Ray, and Phil, KI4DYS. Fred will hide the next fox in June, possibly on the 13th. 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 (in memory of Carl and Eveyln Gauzens W4DTJ and W4WYR as Evelyn passed on in January 2016) 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). The flea starts at 7:00 AM and goes to noon.
WEATHER UPDATE: As of 4:00 AM 4/16, weather acceptable for free flea. Rain chances increase in afternoon but picnic should be ok.
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.).
The next Flamingo Net UPay4WhatUEat (UP4WUE) dinner will take place on Sunday Evening, May 22, 2016 in the Hollywood Blvd. Piccadilly Cafateria.
The Flamingo Net Field Day Event is being planned for June 25, 2016.
