April, 2014 Meeting

swantennaHope everyone’s enjoying the wonderful Spring weather this weekend! So far it’s been a wonderful weekend to put up a few wire antennas and work a few stations as part of the CQ WPX SSB contest.

If you happen to be looking for pointers on cutting and setting up simple wire antennas such as dipoles and window line J-poles then you’re in luck! We will be hosting a simple wire antenna workshop this month at our April meeting this coming Tuesday (April 1st) at 6:30pm at the Salvation Army Corps Community Center in Stillwater. Tim KC9DCO will present a few of his homebrew simple wire antennas that he uses on a regular basis, and he and others will offer advice and assistance for those who wish to bring supplies for creating their own simple wire antennas.

In addition to the workshop we will also finalize our volunteering plans for the Oklahoma Steam and Gas Engine Show in Pawnee, further discuss our plans for our ARRL Field Day operation this June, and hear from Mike Zanfardino from the City of Stillwater about the 2014 Stillwater Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Fair scheduled for Saturday April 26th at Boomer Lake Park.

In all it promises to be a fun and informative evening! Hope everyone is able to make it out!
