LVRAC meets next week

The Las Vegas Radio Amateur Club’s April 2019 General Meeting will be this coming Wednesday the 17th.  The meeting is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM, but please feel free to arrive earlier and network with your fellow hams for a social hour from 6 to 7PM.  The meeting will be at our regular location, Red Rock Search and Rescue building at 340 Villa Monterey Dr., Las Vegas, Nevada. 

This month’s presentation is by one of our members, Fred Anderson – K5LX.  Fred will be discussing the challenge of designing and building an effective 40 meter mobile antenna.  The center loaded “Bug Catcher Vertical” has consistently outperformed all other HF antennas in mobile operation.  Building and installing one on a vehicle can present unique challenges requiring attention to detail in design and construction.  Fred’s presentation will show how and why this antenna is made like it is and how it relates to the theory behind it.

The Club has some great raffle prizes for your Amateur Radio Experience.  So come to the meeting talk to your fellow hams and support your club.

Chas. B. (Charlie) Shepard – K7CBS
