I Speak to Yellow Thunder ARC (Baraboo) on April 6th

    There has been some weak-signal VHF/UHF interest from the Portage/Baraboo area.   So I’ll speak at Yellow Thunder’s meeting on Tuesday evening, April 6th, at 7:30pm.    All are welcome.   If you know of someone who is VHF/UHF-curious, let them know about next Tuesday. 
    I will talk about what bands and frequencies we use to work 100-400 miles every day on bands like 6m, 2m and 70cm.    We’ll talk about why antennas are so important, and share a link to homebrew yagis that actually work.    We’ll outline all the different nets and weekly activities that keep your radio happy.    We’ll discuss VHF/UHF contesting — the where/when/how of it.    We will talk about what grid squares are, and hand out grid square maps to those who want them.   There will be some helpful links to other websites and to classifieds where you can look for VHF/UHF rigs and antennas.  

     Here’s the time and directions from YTARC’s website:   The Yellow Thunder Amateur Radio Club meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm sharp.   We meet in room C128 (EMBS Meeting Room) in the Sauk County Courthouse located at 510 Broadway in Baraboo.   Use the Broadway (main) entrance.   Doors open at 7pm.

    Excellent….. Let ‘m know there are a bunch of us needing Sauk County….. grin.
    I’ll try and aim at them more often on 2… I know that I’ve Q’d w/ someone in that area, so there probably is a few good prospects…
