New Hams

Someone is available before every regular meeting (around 7 PM) to answer questions from newer hams. We look forward to seeing some of the new hams if for no other reason than to meet you. Need help with your current handheld transceiver (HT)?  Bring it in with the manual and we'll try to help you out.

Antenna Day

It was a dark and stormy night! But that was not this day. June 1st dawned bright and beautiful for the BCRC annual antenna day! Jack WA2RHJ and Del K2DOD co-chaired the event this year, and we had a nice turnout. We even had a visitor apply for membership! We set up a canopy, some tables, a couple rigs and thanks to Tabernacle ESB and CERT for use of their facilities and inverter for power we were all set to go. Folks started arriving around 9 AM to drink coffee, eat a variety of donuts (Russo’s apple cider donuts were still hot!) and soon we were testing antennas. A half dozen Hamsticks were tuned and we all learned how to set up and tune a portable loop antenna. When all else fails read the instructions! But we were successful since we used the antennas and completed several QSOs with museum ships weekend ships. In between we had many a discussion about antennas. But all good things must come to an end and just after 1PM we started dismantling our set up. Four hours (+) of enjoying the outdoors while doing some operating, tuning antennas, and learning antennas add up to a great day!
