We will be opening the REAST Clubrooms on Saturday June 29th for an antenna build day. An Antenna build day gives people the opportunity to work on antenna projects they have been working on, or starting a new project, with equipment and knowledge available to make sure you go home with a tuned antenna – which is very important if you are transmitting.
The Antenna Analysers available on the day will be able to measure between 100KHz to 600MHz, which covers the majority of amateur radio bands people use.
Two Kits will also be available on the day:
- An end-fed half wave antenna that can be used on 40-20-15m will cost $35
- A VHF/UHF handheld Moxon antenna for working LEO Satellites will cost $25
Each kit takes around 1-2 hours to assemble and test, so why not bring up some lunch and put together an antenna that you can start using as soon as you are done.
If you are interested in pre-ordering a kit, and guaranteeing availability please contact Ben VK7BEN by email at [email protected].
If you are building kits please be aware that there will be only limited tools available at the clubrooms, and you are strongly encouraged to bring your own. Ben will advise kit builders of what tools they will need on the day a bit closer to the time.
