October 2014 meeting
October 10, 2014
CQ WW contest this month
Prominent VHF/UHF DXer to speak at the October Meeting.This month’s meeting is on Friday October 10th. We couldn’t get the first Friday. The Rec Center was already booked a year ago for that date. Bob Mathews K8TQK from Bainbridge will be doing a presentation on VHF DXing. His presentation is geared for the beginning VHF DXer with tips on equipment, antennas and how to take advantage of certain propagation characteristics. Bob, who is visually impaired, has been DXing VHF and UHF for at least a couple of decades and has placed in the top ten in several VHF contests. He has even been known to climb his own towers and work on antennas despite his handicap. His presentation should be quite informative and entertaining.
