VHF+ Rover Slides from Dave, W0ZF/R

Dave, W0ZF, has made his slides on VHF+ Rover operations that he presented at our September meeting available. It was great to hear a lot of activity on the air this weekend for the September VHF contest, and it’s not too early to start planning your rover adventures for June. You could make plans for January, too, but that often involves extra challenges here in Minnesota.

There is no meeting at Bloomington Civic Plaza tonight

Meeting October 3rd at 7:30 P.M.

This month we have a very interesting presentation lined up: Jack
Burris (K6JEB) will be talking with us, via the internet, about
kite-hoisted antennas for portable operation. For portable operators
who spend time in windy areas that don’t have many trees, kites offer
a great way to get wire antennas in the air—even a full-size
quarter-wave vertical for 160 m!

Enter Bloomington Civic Plaza via the police (South) entrance. Call on the 147.09+ repeater for admission.
We gather on the second floor in the Haeg conference room.

Next Meeting Tuesday September 5th at 7:30 P.M.
