Antenna Projects in Poka

Dick, K4IQJ is presenting the program this month. He will be  discussing the improvements to his beverage antennas at KA4PKB’s QTH in Loachapoka. Also improvements to the club antenna system over the last few months.

The current beverage length is 500 feet and mounted above ground. Dick plans on installing a beverage on ground in the future. It will be 1000 feet.

With 3 elements on 40 meters with our beam, we are putting out a powerful signal now and the results show in our contest operations. Dick has connected our tower to 80 meters also.

W4HOD Will Operate as W1AW/4 During AQP

The Alabama Contest Group has asked HODARS to use the W1AW/4 callsign during the Alabama QSO Party this year. This is indeed a great honor for our club and we are looking forward to the event.

We will be operating CW, SSB and RTTY and in process of lining up members to operate.

More updates as they become available.
