I’d like to ask you to put your thinking cap on and ponder what sort of classes or activities you’d like to be involved in at Tech Net on the Hill this October. Would you like to learn more about stealth antennas or kit building? Would you like to learn how to trim a dipole, or would you just like to get on the air using the club’s HF rigs? Come to tomorrow’s (8/2/2016) meeting and share, or send us a message with the form below. I’ll have my notes from past years, and I suspect Randy will, too…but if you don’t speak up for what you want, you might not get it.
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.
Our next Lecture and Lab, we’ll be building a EFHW Mini Tuner!
