Next Meeting is THURSDAY April 6th
at 7:30pm in Lincolnwood at the community center. (Lincoln Ave and Morse).
We will be building a ladder line antenna for members to use with their 2 meter rigs.The J-Pole has no ground radials and it is easy to construct using inexpensive materials. For its simplicity and small size, it offers excellent performance. Its radiation pattern is close to that of an “ideal” dipole because it is end fed; this results in virtually no disruption to the radiation pattern by the feed line.
Also, we will be selling the Heathkit HR-1680 receiver with matching HS-1661 speaker as a fund raiser for the club.
Both pieces are in excellent condition.This radio was donated to the club!
