We have our weekly net call-in on Monday nights at 7:30 PM. Reach us on the 146.730 repeater. Contact us for more information.

We have monthly meetings at 10am on the 3rd Saturday of the month. Our meetings are held at various locations in and around La Honda.

Sept. 17th Monthly Meeting

Our next meeting will be Saturday, September 17th, 10am, at Neil & Mary’s house in San Gregorio. We’ll have a brief business meeting, followed by a practical exercise with our radios and new frequency plan.  We’ll divide into teams and practice skills that will come in handy during our October SET, and certainly in any emergency.  If you haven’t already programmed these frequencies in your radio, download them at: http://www.sc4arc.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/draft_comm_plan-r5.pdf   At least make sure CMD31-33 and VTAC31-34 are in your radio.

See you the 17th!!


August meeting a success!

August’s meeting at Pescadero High School was wonderful and well attended considering the number of events going on that weekend! We discussed upcoming meetings, technical sessions and a possible date for our Christmas party.

Also announced were plans for the upcoming SET (Simulated Emergency Test) October 22nd.  Make sure to hold the date in your calendar from 10am-1pm.  It will be a pot luck, of course!

We viewed slides of the CEC tent exercise held in August, which had volunteers assemble several rigid tent structures that can be quickly deployed for emergencies. We then visited the radio and antenna location on campus and familiarized ourselves with it’s set-up and operation. We will continue to work on a good set of instructions for setting up operations here and at other locations. Meeting adjourned to the Pescadero Fair!

Thanks to all for Arts & Fun

Thanks to everyone for coming by or hanging out at the SC4 booth at PAFF this year. We had loads of visitors, lots of interest in radio communications, and met some very interesting neighbors and hams. The Hustler HF antenna was set up and used with both a KX3 and Yaesu 897 to contact stations along the west coast. We also demonstrated 2m operation using hand-talkies and a Yaesu 8900 with a painter pole antenna.  Well done!


The SC4 Amateur Radio Club sponsors SC4ARES which provides emergency communication services during disasters for the South Coast of San Mateo County.
