Lakeside Emergency Net Kick-Off Approaches

River Park Fire Station Complex-

In six days, on January 19th, the Lakeside Communications Volunteer Group will conduct the first "Lakeside Emergency Net" from the base station at the River Park Fire Station Complex. While the primary objective of this net is to forge a relationship with the amateur radio community the net also provides an opportunity for operators of all proficiency levels the chance to operate in a formal net environment.

While the name of the net seems rather formal it is our hope that you will find the format relaxed and inviting. Our Net Control Managers are not only members of our community, but bring a depth of experience that should provide a learning environment for newer operators.

The amateur base station at the River Park Fire Complex has been granted the call letters K6LKS to better reflect the Community of Lakeside. But this net is in no way limited to amateurs located in Lakeside, this net is open to all amateur radio operators.

It's very likely the first few net sessions will be committed to organization as we get to know each other for the first time, but as time passes we hope to perfect a format that the community finds beneficial.  Will all efforts we need feedback from you on the format of the net, so please feel free to send suggestions to

We again thank the members of the East County Repeater Association of the generous use of their repeater. Without this repeater there would not be a community net.

The first net will be conducted on January 19th at 7:00 p.m. The Rattlesnake Repeater can be found on a frequency of 147.765 (-) with a P/L tone of 79.7. This repeater is located at an optimal location and should provide great coverage.

See you on the net.....
