Excellent news on the tuner.


Biggest news coming out of the meeting last night is we decided to switch the QTH to Bob’s house in Penryn.  We are meeting at his QTH after the breakfast on Saturday to look at antenna and shack layout.


While we miss out on the Zero Noise feature of the Lake Valley Reservoir site, we get the opportunity to have CW operators drop in for a few hours and restroom and cooking facilities.  Plus, Bob will let us use his K3s station, hex beam @ 45’, 7300, and internet.  That opens up spotting and propagation services.


More info to come in the minutes.

What the heck does “73” mean?  73 is morse code short hand for “Best Regards” used by Ham radio operators.  It’s origin goes all the way back to the landline telegraph days.

Yes, I have an SGC MAC 200 Tuner/Multi-switcher with one balanced line connect and three coax connects. Rated to 200 watts.
I also have two portable antennas I'll bring just in case, a Ventenna HPf Multi-band Vertical/Dipole: and a portable OCF Multi-band dipole (the one Brian strung up for me in the dark :)
