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 Fleas (jointly with the UMARC), often on the third Saturdays in April and November. These are held in parking lot 1-109 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).

Updates

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 Saturday morning January 11, 2020. The foxes (KD4JSD and KB4HAY) were hidden in Fern Forest Nature Center just south of Atlantic Blvd.. The team of Chip (KM4SJN) and CJ set a speed record in finding the foxes in 45 minutes. Also hunting were Bill (WA4TEJ) and Phil (KI4DYS). The next hunt will be on Saturday, May 16, 2020. Gather at the south parking lot of Highland Oaks Park at 10:30 and the hunt should start at 11:00 when the foxes begin transmitting on 147.425. More hunt details are on the What's New page.  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 Flamingo Net (pay $1.50/hr to park) Flea will be held on Saturday morning, March 14, 2020 in the University of Miami parking lot 1-109, 1300 Campo Sano Ave., Coral Gables, FL.

The Picnic / BBQ following the flea will be in Brewer Park, about a mile west of the Flea off Miller Road (S.W. 56th Street).

The next Flamingo Net UPay4WhatUEat (UP4WUE) dinner takes place on Sunday Evening, May 10, 2020 at the Hollywood Blvd. Piccadilly Cafateria. Gather at 6:00 PM.
