|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, May 17, 2015. The fox was hidden in Golden Shores Park, just west of A1A at 191 Street. near the Intracostal Waterway. The first finders were the team of Phil (KI4DYS) and Ray (KB4HAY) who just barely beat the 2 hour deadline. The next hunt will be in the Fall. 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 Field Day Event took place on Saturday, June 27, 2015. Bill (WA4TEJ), Larry (KA4IQI) and Stu (KD4JSD) were in attendance. We were in a shelter at Milton-Littman Park at the Miami Gardens Drive exit of I-95. Some DFing work was accomplished and 10m was fairly active after Field Day started at 2 PM.
Our next free flea will be on Saturday morning November 21, 2015 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 21, 2015. It will be held in Brewer Park, just west of the U. M. campus.
For location and driving information to any of our events, see the "What's new" page.
