The next meeting of the Billerica Amateur Radio Society (BARS) is Wednesday, December 2, 2015.
Meeting Time: 7:00-9:30 PM
Topic: Installation and Operation of a Mobile HF Station
Our Guest speaker: Fred Kemmerer, AB1OC, will talk about “Installation and Operation of a Mobile HF Station”. This is another talk that fits well with our BARS “Get-on-the-air” project. Fred has put together a very informative talk.
This presentation covers the steps involved in installing a mobile HF setup and getting it to operate well in a modern vehicle. The presentation covers the construction and operation of a state of the art mobile HF station in three steps/levels a basic 100W setup with HAM Stick antennas, installation of a Screwdriver antenna to cover all HF bands 160m 10m, and finally the addition of an amplifier for higher power operation. Operational results at each level as well as tips and areas to focus on are covered. As an added bonus, he will have a mobile station at the meeting for viewing.
The weekly BARS 8 PM Wednesday night net will not meet because of the club meeting. Instead, members are encouraged to get on Billerica (147.12) on their way to/from the meeting.
