Evening 2m time

I spent some time fooling around on the 2m radio tonight. Ran the antenna out the sliding glass door and attached the magmount to the air conditioner.

I spent most of the time browsing local repeaters and checking if I could reach them. I managed to reach:

It was a pleasant surprise to switch over to AD6KV and find the Livermore Amateur Radio Club’s weekly net in process. The net takes place every Monday at 19:00, but I only came in at the very end during the call for final check-ins. Nevertheless, I was able to check in with the net coordinator WS6T and confirm that my signal was acceptable.

An interesting note, I found a long recorded message playing at 147.195, a recording of a talk from some sort of radio emergency response organization.
