Antenna testing and tuning day

Thanks to Linsdey VE1LCG and Luigi VE1XBJ for inviting us all to their place to work on the antennas. Getting them ready for some mobile DX’ing

By the end of the day there were 15 of us there

The antenna testing and tuning went well today. Luigi’s 20 M vertical ground plane mobile antenna was put up and tested. It still has a 1-1 swr the same as when we built it last summer. I can be broke down into 5ft sections for ease of transportation and put together and up by 1 person if necessary.

Cheese Burgers and Hot Dogs were BBQ’d for the hungry Amateurs and families that attended, by Lindsey VE1LCG, and enjoyed by all.

We will discuss

  • and do some on air exercises to get you used to operating.

The course is geared mainly towards newly licensed Hams and those recently licensed that are feeling kind of lost.
