General Meeting

Our January 8th, 2005 meeting was a great success!!
There was a fabulous NVIS antenna discussion, FREE hand keys, Door Prizes, and a whole lot more!

Stephen Finch (AIØW) gave us an excellent presentation on NVIS (Near Vertical Incident Signal) antennas and their use in short range communications for the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and other applications. As you can see, in the pictures below, Stephen provided a variety of drawings and other graphics that explained everything from ground losses and absorption to radiation angles and ionized layers - thank you Stephen!

Marshall Emm, of Morse Express, not only provided us with meeting space but gave all those present a free hand key if they promised to make at least one Morse code QSO within the next week! As you can see in the photographs, below, our hearty group of volunteers didn't hesitate to take the pledge - thank you Marshall and Morse Express!!
