Our next club meeting, on Tuesday, March 5th, will focus on the most popular of all radio antennas, the dipole. Jim Eatman, KG5WAW, will discuss the electrical characteristics of dipoles and how to use them effectively. The next club Lecture and Lab on Saturday, March 23rd, will focus on the “DRAWS Digital Work Station”. Look for more details in future announcements!
We also have a fun event that’s coming up fast: our club participation in the Wings of Freedom Tour at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas on March 16 and 17th. We don’t provide public service; we don’t work hard. We just show off our radio hobby to the interested visitors at the event while get free admission to the museum so that we can admire the historic aircraft! We need help on both days. A sign-up form will be coming soon. For now, please use the “contact us” form to let us know if you can help.
Finally, don’t forget to check the contest calendar for this week. The Novice Rig Roundup will be going on all week, and this coming weekend will feature QSO parties for Oklahoma, Idaho, and Wisconsin, among others.
