SARC in the park!
We had an interesting workshop on Saturday, September 16, 2023. 'SARC in the Park' was a presentation by Dmitry VA7DVO for our members interested in POTA activations. You will find more about getting started in POTA at their website, and in our free digital magazine 'The Communicator'.
With an easy to build and inexpensive segmented 5-band wire dipole antenna, we made several of the 17m SSB POTA contacts shown in this video, including Switzerland, Italy and with a mobile station in Northern England.
The antenna plan is at: https://bit.ly/SARC23Sep-Oct on page 45.
