Welcome to Lizard Lick Ham Radio!

facebook -1498434997

John Akins, NF4JA has decided to go back to his Tallahassee roots and open a net.

Terms like 'Git R Dun' and 73 Y'All! will be just some of the favorite sayings on this new net  like, "If yur antenny has a bad SWR, BLOW IT UP!".

There are some restrictions though.

You will need to grow a beard and let your hair down.

Also, having a southern accent is a plus. [Hey, I resemble that remark!! - WB4LCN]

You can join in the net at 2 am every other week right here on the 40 meter repeater.


Ed's March 6 Shooters Meeting Recap

sd6shooters old largeMarch 17th was St. Patrick’s day but the most important significance of the day was that it was the March membership meeting date for the San Diego Six Shooters Amateur Radio club.  By the time 7:00 p.m. rolled around, the Ranch House restaurant was rocking with over 50 members and friends in place for the meeting.  And what a meeting!

Mike, N6KZB did a fine job of presenting the Tijuana/San Diego Mesh Network project.  Check out the pictures on Facebook under the heading of the SDSSARC.  Mike and his gang will be at OPERATING DAY in April.  More on that later.

Thanks to Ric, W3DSO, who donated a fine 6 meter dipole, KK6FXV Bob got a great deal on the antenna and helped the club as well.  We will be doing more of that kind of thing now that we are officially a not-for-profit organization (501(c)(3).  Stay tuned!

We welcomed at least 5 new first-time attenders, had a good number of membership renewals and received one new member. 

A number of announcements were made including:
