|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, December 15, 2013. The foxes, KD4JSD and KE4ZZM, were hidden in a small park just west of North Perry Airport, off Pembroke Road. After an hour and a half, WA4TEJ finally found them with the team of KB4HAY (Ray) and KI4DYS (Phil) close behind him. The next hunt will be on Sunday, June 15, 2014. 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 April 19, 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 April 19, 2014. It will be held in Brewer Park, just west of the U. M. campus.
The Flamingo Net held a walking 2m Fox Hunt at the Hamboree on Saturday Feb. 1, 2014. The first one to find the 3 sneakily hidden mini-foxes was Seth, KK4SND, who won the $20 prize. Also hunting were N4YQT, KI4DYS, KK4LGC, KJ4YVN Jr. and KB4PFC.
The Flamingo Net Field Day Event is being planned for this upcoming Field Day.
For location and driving information to any of our events, see the "What's new" page.
