We had a great time this afternoon building Tape Measure Yagi antennas with the Lincoln County 4-H Haywire Electric Club!
AJ4JZ, Bill Stevenson, did a fantastic job teaching the kids about ham radio and the importance of having gain when transmitting and receiving!!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this build project for this group of young people!!
Another friendly reminder that the ARES/RACES meeting is Thursday night, 5-11-2017, at 7 p.m. held at the Gaston County Emergency Operation Center, 605 N. Highland St. Gastonia, NC. (go around to the back and ask to be let in). It is open to all licensed amateur radio operators who desire to serve the public in times of emergency and need.
We hope to discuss our new DMR repeater and practice EmComm digital modes.
Hope to see you there!
ARES/RACES Emergency Coordinator
