Topic: Non-Traditional Antenna Contest



  2-Meter Net Every Tuesday at 7:00pm

April Meeting Update: A huge thanks to WA4USO for an engaging and informative tour of home brewed projects. Darrell led a bunch of us, long in the tooth and those not so ‘experienced’, into a wonderland of ideas, projects and fun.

Our next non-tradition antenna contest. Build an antenna using non tradition materials. No copper or aluminum tubing. No feedline type antennas. Antenna must resonate on or near the design frequency. Past designs have used plumbers strapping and soda cans. Challenge your creativity. Judging will take place at the June 17 club meeting and the winner's creation will be used on field day to make at least one QSO.


Regular monthly meetings are at Becknell Hall (pictured right), also known as the Pioneer Village City Hall, located at 4700 Summitt Drive. We meet the third Friday of each month at 7:00 PM, except when special events are scheduled, such as our annual picnic and Christmas party. These events and times will be posted and take the place of our regular meetings.

Directions: From the Gene Snyder (I-265), take Preston Highway (Hwy 61) south to Bullitt County. Follow Preston to the traffic light before the 84 Lumber. There is a sign indicating the Pioneer Village City Hall to the right. Turn right, this is Summitt Drive. Follow Summitt until you see Mini's U-Stuff-It Self Storage on the left. Becknell Hall is immediately afterwards on your left.
