Next Meeting October 20th @ 7:30pm

October Meeting - Magnetic Loop Antennas and Remote Tuning by Jack Weaver AA5VZ

Jack Weaver, AA5VZ, recently joined the AARC and shared one of his favorite projects with the club. Some of you may remember the show-and-tell chat he gave on an Arduino-based Magnetic Loop Controller he assembled. Jack has been a licensed Ham for over 40 years. He has been constructing amateur radio projects most of his hamming life. Among them are a Slow-Scan TV Monitor, various indoor/outdoor antennas, some QRP transceivers and, most recently, a pair of HF Magnetic Loop Antennas with remote controllers.  This month he will describe how to make a magnetic loop antenna, how to tune it and how to expand its versatility through remote tuning. If you are seeking viable alternatives to operating HF from antenna challenged areas, you will be glad you sat in on this session. And, you may get to witness a successful QSO at the meeting using one of these marvelous loops. Please join us on October 20th for a presentation you won’t want to miss!
