July Meeting Report

At last night's meeting, Kai Siwiak KE4PT gave a presentation on improvised antennas that could be used in an emergency situation, including a quick 2 m dipole from coax, a way to convert a 2m mag mount to 2m/440 operation, and an off-center end fed HF dipole, plus some other tips and tricks.

Thanks Kai!
