From The ARES E-Letter for November 15, 2017

  • Hint: With appropriate guying, an extension ladder can be used to hold up a Yagi under Field Day or DXpedition conditions.
    In this picture a SteppIR 2-Element Yagi for the current VK9MA DXpedition has been mounted and is being tested. It can be turned manually.

 

  • Sounds: Here are some sounds you don’t want to hear: RFI. The ARRL “sound library” contains known RFI sources, and some that have not yet been identified. If you have a potential RFI problem, compare your noise to these to help eliminate it.
