|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, October 23, 2016. The foxes, Ray and Phil (KB4HAY and KI4DYS) were well hidden deep in Tall Cypress Natural Area in north Broward near Sample and 441. After 3 1/2 hours, Bill, WA4TEJ, came in first with Stu, KD4JSD, in the runnuing throughout. Since it took over two hours to find the foxes, Ray and Phil will hide the next fox, perhaps on December 11 . 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 Dora Dixon, K4CYF) will be on Saturday morning November 12, 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.
A Picnic/BBQ will follow the Free Flea at noon on Saturday November 12, 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, October 30, 2016 in the Hollywood Blvd. Piccadilly Cafateria.
The Flamingo Net Field Day Event had participation from KD4JSD (Stu), KA4IQI (Larry), Chip (KM4SJN), CJ and WA4TEJ (Bill). Contacts were made on 10m and 2m.
