We will be holding a build day on Saturday March 23 from 9 AM till 1 PM at the club site. We will have two projects you can build.
The first is a tape measure 2 meter Yagi antenna that can be very useful for fox hunting or reaching that repeater that is just a little too far away. The project cost is $27 for the parts.
The second is a 1:1 or 4:1 balun for HF that can be used for low power transmission. We will be making the balun using toroid construction and it will be enclosed in box with hangers, connections for the dipole and a PL-239 connector for the coax connection. The project cost is $20 for the parts.
Each of these projects can be completed in a couple of hours. There will also be a short presentation on how each project works and applications will be discussed.
I need to know by Friday March 8th if you are interested in building either or both of these projects. That will give me time to make sure all the materials are ready for the event. If you are interested or have any questions, please email me at jawilson@j3solutions.com and indicate which project you would like to build.
Thanks,
Jim, AC8NT
