Southern Maine Area Amateur Radio Team to meet March 29th

Postby AI2Q » Thu Mar 24, 2016 3:49 pm

Bulletin from the Southern Maine Area Amateur Radio Team

The next meeting of the Southern Maine Area Amateur Radio Team is slated for Tuesday, March 29th at The New School on Rt. One in Kennebunk.

We'll convene at 7-PM. All Radio Amateurs, newcomers, friends, families, and New England Radio Discussion Society (NERDS) founders, are invited to SMAART meetings.

In this session's Tech Talk we'll discuss "HF antennas for beginners," and use the popular EZNEC antenna modeling program to analyze possible performance. Using EZNEC, we'll show how KC1DLE's L-doublet antenna may work on various HF bands.

We will also continue planning for 2Ø16 ARRL Field Day.

As always try and bring a show-and-tell item or two for the Tech Tales session.
