 KM6CIR LADIES OF THE NET

We are an informal net dedicated for women with a current Amateur License. Our group meets at 10am PST on 7.245 every Monday - Thursday morning to discuss topics of interest or just a friendly visit. We plan to do fun activities together and hope to hear from you soon. Please join the conversation!!

 

HISTORY OF KM6CIR LADIES OF THE NET 

KM6CIR Ladies of the Net was started by three ladies WB6LVC Debbie Johnson, KK6RXO Janet Fisher, and KK6KSY Tina Madsen during our California Northern Convention called Pacificon in 2015. We were discussing women in radio being microphone shy and also having a net to be able to discuss topics of interest with other women. We talked to WB6NOA Gordon West on how to start a net. He gave us ideas and instructed us on how to apply for a club callsign. Once we went home the net was off and running. We now have a club callsign KM6CIR and on QRZ.com. You can hear us weekdays at 10am on 40 meters 7.245 mhz.

The ladies turned out in the numbers! The members of Ladies of the Net were no exception. Thanks to Janet KK6RXO for organizing and ordering our "Ladies of the Net" purple hats, we were all able to wear them during Pacificon. Some of the ladies attended the Antenna Class on Friday and you could also find us at the "YLRL-Young Ladies Radio League, INC" table. Greeting and talking with everyone that stopped by. Those of us who are also members of the California Rescue Communications 40 meter net "The Gordo Net", attended their luncheon at noon. On Saturday was another day of educational classes, walking the hotel looking and shopping at all the exhibits, stopping and visiting as you pass a call sign you reconize. Finally putting a face to the voice. The YLRL ladies had a wonderful meeting in the afternoon, meeting more ladies that enjoy the hobby as much as we do. Saturday evening our Ladies of the Net KM6CIR enjoyed an evening of eating and laughter. I think we were the loudest table in the restaurant, we didn't want the evening to end. We look forward to our next get together in 2018!! 

KM6CIR LADIES OF THE NET TRANSMITTING FROM RMS QUEEN MARY SHIP W6RO RADIO ROOM

We had a wonderful time aboard the W6RO Queen Mary on July 8, 2017. Our ladies traveled from multiple locations in the western U/S to the Queen Mary in Long Beach, Ca. We arrived the day before and had time to tour the historical ship. There are many interesting tours, displays, gift shops, restaurants and views from the vessel. Those of us from out of town stayed on board in the hotel for two days.

The wireless room (radio Room) is a well designed immaculately appointed facility. Among the interesting displays is its original radios and equipment used on the 80 year old vessel. What a wonderful trip back to nostalgic history we all experienced. The room has glass windows making the view from the upper deck spectacular. It was a very solemn breath taking moment. Our group was honored to have exclusive use of this prestigious broadcasting platform. We were not rushed and transmitted on all the transceivers while responding to a large pile up of stations trying to reach us from points all over the United States, Europe and other locations around the world. It happens to be next to the large fog horn which still goes off at 9am, 12 noon, 3pm and 6pm every day. The horn can be heard all around Long Beach Harbor. The ladies had a startling experience when the 3pm blast went off during their QSO’s. We thought the noise was coming from one of the radios, or "YIKES!" maybe we touch the wrong button!! 

Our group enjoys getting together and has members from all over the Western U/S. It is constantly growing; our youngest member present was 17 years old. We meet somewhere in Northern Ca. once per year, once in the Southern region and at Pacificon in October.

Each one of the ladies received a beautiful certificate from both events.  

I am pleased with your interest and urge everyone to watch Ham Nation our special event was featured as episode 308, Amateur Radio Newsline, YL - Harmonics magazine, and other publications and podcasts. 

 

KM6CIR LADIES OF THE NET MAKE HISTORY

I would like to congratulate all the wonderful ladies who came aboard the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier; 707 W Hornet Ave, Alameda, CA 94501 on February 18th 2017. You were the first group to take command of the brand new radio room. This special event has never occurred in the entire 72 years the decorated museum ship has been in service. 

The powerful Harris military transmitters were all sizzling resulting in raising the room temperature. It took a crew of six technicians to monitor the glowing candles which were pumping out at full capacity. Onboard fire watch was on alert as the unrelenting ladies had the hefty 117 foot antennas above the water line glowing and smoking. We were blessed with a beautiful 360 degree day of sunshine. If it had been foggy the glowing antennas would have cleared our own patch of visibility surrounding the vessel. This standby observer along with the electronic technical staff led, by Wilko AG6DK, were smiling with raised eyebrows and thumbs up amazement as the group performed at a full professional combat readiness level. With its massive flight deck and moored in the beautiful salty San Francisco Bay, this vessel is the strongest broadcasting platform on the West Coast.

We are proud of these highly qualified women who stood their post until the end of this event. Everyone was captured in awe as our own Dr. Carol Milazzo KP4MD, with her lightning C/W fist and Dr. Emilia Seafaring KI6YYT nearly melted half of the 4 sky scraping antennas. Emilia logged in the most pages of contacts reaching to far off stations. While taking command of the air ways, Tina KK6KSY’s transmissions were heard worldwide. Radio operators around the world were stacking up trying to contact the ladies. These ladies were all performing with precise expert quality. Before they knew it four hours had passed as the group reluctantly throttled back the mighty transmitters; the exciting day was over.

We later met at a restaurant and fondly recalled highlights of this wonderful historic special event. These fine ladies represented KM6CIR proudly. This will be a great annual event to look forward to in the future.  

Listen to the Ladies of the net weekdays on 7.245 MHz at 10am PST.

(left to right KK6RXO Janet, AA6MW Michelle, WA6AGP Sue, WB6NOA Gordon, KK6KSY Tina, and WB6LVC Debbie). 

The day long Antenna Class was interesting and imformative! Our own KK6KSY Tina won the door prize of a Tri Band 2 Meter, 220 and 440 antenna. She walked around the rest of the evening smiling as she carried around her new antenna!       

Saturday October 15th: Our group had a "KM6CIR Ladies of the Net" club meeting. At 4pm, we attended the Young Ladies Radio League Forum in the Pleasanton/Danville room as part of the Pacificon Convention. At the Podium is WB6LVC Debbie talking to the YLRL Forum about Ladies of the Net. After the forum KK6RXO Janet, WB6LVC Debbie and KK6KSY Tina stayed afterwards talking to many of the women personally expressing how important it is to get on the radio and become comfortable with using the microphone. We thank KM4MD Carol for inviting us.  

 

Northern California Luncheon

February 20, 2016 - Here is our own Monday morning net controller WA6AGP saying, "WE HAVE ARRIVED!!" When "KM6CIR Ladies of the Net" met in Vacaville, Ca. for a luncheon.

We had a blast and didn't want the day to end!! Our group was represented by members from Northern, Southern California and Nevada.
