This is going to be a two part meeting -
March 6 and April 3. Our topic for
the March meeting is going to be antennas built from window
line. Not "fed
by window line", but built so that the entire antenna is
made out of 450 ohm window line.
.....Tuesdays, there will be a weekly CERT net at 8 pm on the
GNARC 2m repeater (W1NLK 2 Meter W1NLK 146.475 Mhz PL 100 +1Mhz Split
Echolink Node N1EV-R #6138. CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) units are active in most of
the surrounding towns. Stamford, New Canaan, Wilton, Fairfield, Westport,
and Weston have CERT teams. Region 1 also includes several other towns with
CERT teams, but are likely too far away for this net......The net is back on this week.
The purpose of the net is to facilitate communications testing between
towns, give newer or inactive CERT hams a chance to get on the air in a
stress free way, and encourage more ham activity in general!
All hams are welcome to check-in as well.
If you have any questions please reply to me DIRECTLY, off list, not using

This is going to be a two part meeting - March 6 and April 3.
Our topic for the March meeting is going to be antennas built
from window line. Not "fed by window line", but built so that
the entire antenna is made out of 450 ohm window line.
It turns out that window line can be used to build a variety of
HF and VHF/UHF antennas - both horizontal and vertical - that
have good performance characteristics, good flexibility and
portability, and yet are inexpensive and easy to build (some of
them don't even need soldering). Some of the antenna types that
can be built with window line include dual-band horizontal
dipoles, end-fed Zepps (vertical or horizontal), J-Poles and
Slim Jims, and ground planes. The designs include matching stubs
(made with sections of window line) so that the antennas can be
operated without tuners (or at worst use the tuners built into
most rigs). AND -- they're fed with 50 ohm coax for ease of
