The DARC is planning an outing with the communications trailer to the Frontiers Of Flight Museum March 31 and April 1, 2018.
For those that want to have fun with HF D-Star here is a fun award you can work on for 2017 !
The End-Fed Half-Wave tuner we built at yesterday’s lecture and lab really does work! I disconnected the tuner from my base rig and cut some wires to the “30 meter” length printed on the PCB. The half-wave wire was tied to an old railroad spike that I threw up into a pecan tree. The counterpoise is sort of lying on the back deck.
