Well, as Rich (KD8KBO) would say." Them Boys are up to No Good Again". And he would be right.
A while back a few of the3 Woodchucks, Larry (N8OWS), Chuck (K8CVM) and Jim (W8MIJ) started investigating the idea of using an old Satellite Antenna as a VHF/UHF Antenna.
Saturday September 14th from 6pm till 10pm.
This Saturday the Woodchuck ARC is having a “LY” (Young Ladies) night!
“YL” is a term that has been used to in amateur radio for centuries.
Woman have been part of Amateur Radio for many years so this is nothing new.
It is just that we do not remember any club dedicating a night for woman only operators.
We are the first club in the area to attempt to try this for all the woman that wish to try making Amateur Radio contacts for our club from the Club Station.
Over the past few months, the Woodchucks were able to acquire a 40ft tower.
Larry N8OWS was also able to acquire a 20 meter beam.
With the help of a few members we were able to get the tower setup at the Cement Tent right behind the Allis Barn.
Installation was completed just in time for the ARRL 2019 Field Day event.
Beside the Beam Antenna the Woodchucks now have a 6m AR6 antenna, mounted on top of the Tower and a 10 meter AR10 antenna mounted next to the Creek, so the Alligator can keep an eye on it.
Fine tuning of the Beam Antenna and the AR’s was completed and were able to run some SWR measurements are these are what we have:
