Join us for a weekend of playing with antennas. Ben Clark (KE4TFI) will be demonstrating how to use antenna modeling software Saturday. We will build several of these antennas to see how well they work in reality. The software we will be using is MMANA which is free for anyone to use. We will also be making some 2 meter tape measure beams which are great for emergency communication when on foot using a handheld radio.
Some guest reserved Camp Ney-A-Ti for the weekend we were planing to hold our event. So we are moving to a new location to hold our event in the Arab City Park. Below are some pictures of the pavilion / location.
