November Program - Elections/Winter Field Day

The next club meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 18, 2022.

The election will replace any speaker or program at this meeting. Plus we should spend a few minutes discussing Winter Field Day, January 28 (and maybe 29). Sundown is just before 6 PM. So, unless we bring some lighting and the weather is actually nice and want to operate longer or to breakdown. We need some simple setups. This would be a good time for anyone with a small portable HF antenna (Buddy Pole, mag loop, dipole between trees) to bring to use or let someone borrow. This could be a good test for a faster setup in case of a real emergency. I am thinking setup in a half hour or definitely an hour. We do have the January meeting the week before WFD to discuss it. But this is a good time to get people’s minds working and planning including finding or making any equipment, arranging time off, or whatever. I suspect the generator is powerful enough to run a space heater or three.

Our club meetings are held at the Arlington Human Resources Building, 501 West Sanford Street.

Our club meetings are also being streamed on Zoom. Ask for details.
