Tech Day 13 May 2023


Our first Tech Day was a hit!!!!

Assemble and discussion of a two-band antenna and several suggestions of mounting.

Thank you Jeff N9PCC and Gene N9ELP for heading up our first topic!

We had 9 for breakfast and 11 hams from Marshall and Kosciusko county, and one visitor.

Next months topic is Programming! Radios - June 10

  • "It was a great day, lots of questions and "thoughts", inputs, ideas from everyone! Happy to see the participation!"
  • "Also, a special "Thank you" to Rich Sytsma, N9GPY for his antenna analyzer which proved out a lot of "theory" for us to see in real time, and Byron W9ELM for the gear he brought as well. We are very fortunate to have this knowledge base. Thank you, gentlemen!"


Pictures to follow.
