With the help of the fire department, the new HF Antenna (Carolina Windom) has been installed at the arena. The antenna is strung between a 90 foot pole and an AC unit around 250 feet away.
Jim has informed me that he now has all the needed components for the HF antenna. He has attached the Windom to a messenger line and is waiting for the Fire Chief to organize the installation.
Jim has received the go ahead from the city to purchase the Carolina Windom 80 for the Arena. He will then be reimbursed by the city once the equipment has been received. This is great news as we will now be able to ensure we get all the specific items we require for the installation.
The club is trying the 80m band for our weekly net for the next few weeks. Tune up 5 if the frequency is in use. If you hear nothing try the club repeater to determine the current status.
Please call in at 7:30pm PST every Sunday
