HHARC and the Star Spangled Heights Celebration June 30, 2018

The Huber Heights Star Spangled Heights Celebration is June 30th at Thomas Cloud Park from 10:00am to 7:00pm. As in the past, the HHARC will be showcasing the DARA Communications Van. The Van and other HHARC club exhibits will be in the parking lot by the splash pad.

The event planners request that exhibitors be ready by 10:30am so we plan to have the van there by 9:30am. They should let you into the area where the van is parked in order to unload your gear, but then you will need to park your personal vehicle in the regular public parking areas. Contact Stan Leeds, KC7EHJ, on the morning of June 30 to let him know you have gear to unload so he can facilitate traffic directors to let you into the splash pad area.

We will probably wrap 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.
