Field Day, June 23 – 24, 2018

The HHARC participated in Field Day 2018, June 23 – 24 at Cottonwood Park, 6000 Fishburg Rd in Huber Heights. We operated as a 3A category with 3 HF stations on emergency power, plus a GOTA (Get On The Air) Station.
Jim Storms AB8YK, President of the HHARC, reported that we had a record 9 different operators with 24 people attending. We made 265 contacts with an additional 12 from the GOTA station. We worked 41 states and 55 contest sections. Most contacts were on phone but we had 1 CW QSO and 59 Digital QSO’s.
Our entered score was 336; with a power multiplier of 2 (for the digital and CW contacts) for 672. Bonus points were 950.

HHARC and the Star Spangled Heights Celebration June 30, 2018

The Huber Heights Star Spangled Heights Celebration was June 30th at Thomas Cloud Park. As in the past, the HHARC showcased the DARA Communications Van. The Van and other HHARC club exhibits were in the parking lot by the splash pad.

The weather was very hot with temperatures in the low 90’s and perhaps, because of this, public turnout seemed to be rather low. Nevertheless, we had a good time.

We wrapped up operations by 5 pm.

HHARC’s Club Project – Antenna Analyzer

Some HHARC members are participating in a club project build this winter. We are building an Arduino-based antenna analyzer similar to the project in the November 2017 issue of QST magazine. We held our final workshop for the HF version of the analyzer at the Forge on March 3, 2018.

Club members Reuben Meeks, W8GUC, and Phil Brown, AC8UW, are working on an add-on for the analyzer that would take it up to VHF/UHF ranges. More on this to follow.
