March’s presentation meeting will be held on Thursday, March 28. Socializing will begin around 6:30pm with the presentation beginning promptly at 7:30pm.
The presentation will be given by Steve Kelly, WB4QNI. The topic is “antennas”.
Steve has many years of experience designing, building, and erecting various types of antennas. In his presentation, Steve hopes to highlight many tips and tricks for construction and erection of antennas that he has developed and learned over the years. This should be a fantastic meeting, for sure! Hope to see as many folks as possible attend.
Several members of YCARS, who are a part of York County ARES, attended Auxcomm ARES training on February 9th at the SC State Emergency Operations Center.
Topics included amateur and non-amateur radio communications operations that are used during emergency deployments and practice using multiple modes and frequencies using numerous field deploy-able communications trailers.
