Gasparilla Parade Radio Net

As you all know the Gasparilla Parade is this Saturday.  The Tampa EOC will be activated.  We will have an informal net running from about 1000 to about 1900 (7:00 P.M.).  We will not be making net calls, just monitoring.  If you are going to the parade then take your HT with you.  If you see something that needs to be reported then you can call it in.  If something comes up I may make a call for any information anyone out there might be in a position to provide.  Otherwise the net will be pretty silent.  Actually if you are near the parade route you will probably have trouble hearing your radio anyway.

The frequency is 146.940 – offset and a tone of 146.2.

If you don’t know how to program your radio for that then you need to come to our communication workshop on the third Wednesday each month.  It is at the Hillsborough County EOC at 2711 E Hanna.

Know Your Radio Night

Hillsborough County ARES/RACES will be holding its monthly know your radio night this upcoming Wednesday evening (10/21) at 7pm. All are welcome to attend, even if you don’t have a radio or a license. As always, this will be an informal session where those who would like to learn can come and do so in a friendly, unassuming environment. All questions are welcome. Remember, the only dumb question is the one that ISN’T asked. If you need help programming a radio that you own, please bring the radio, any cables you might need, and the owner’s manual with you. As you may know, some radios are more of a challenge to program than others but we’ll do our best to help with that as well.

We’ll meet at the Hillsborough County EOC, which is located at 2711 E Hannah Ave in Tampa. For those that have never been there before the doors are kept locked for security reasons. When you get to the building, you’ll see a phone to the right of the door. There will be a sign by the phone with a phone number to call. We’ll come get you.

I hope to see you all there.
