Re: Help building an antenna #antennas

Josh, you are talking about going to Lowes, what kind of parts are you looking for? I might have some extra stuff laying around that could help. 

I tried to build a triband "cactus" J-pole last year to match my mobile, and after several weekends I never could get it to tune without an analyzer. I finally gave up after spending about $100 on copper tubing and such, I broke down and just ordered a Diamond X510 and called it done before I spent any more money on the "cheap" way out. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the time I spent on it but I also learned that sometimes its cheaper to let the experts build it.

With the current market for copper, it's at an all time high and still going up, plus shortage of raw materials you might be ahead just to order a factory antennae.

Thank you for doing it. Thanks to Mike and Rick for inviting me.
I can say as a fairly new guy that we appreciate the time you put into it. 
I can’t bank on much these days but I can always count on Saturday night at 8PM.
I look forward to meeting some of you guys at the breakfast one of these days if I can ever get the time.

Saturday Night Net Results #simplex-results

 

We had a whiz-banger of a Net tonight with the following results:
50 on 146.415 FM (Red Alert)
13 on 144.240 USB
11 on 50.135 USB
The last year or so, the number of check-ins has bounced, roughly between 30 and 50 check-ins per net.  Tonight was indeed one of the big ones.  Thanks for everyone's participation.  Each of you are helping others in understanding their stations' capabilities.  Keep up the good work!!

Help building an antenna #antennas

KO4HGO Josh
 

I have 2 SO-239 connectors that I plan to build a 2 meter and a 440 ground plane antenna with tomorrow. I had someone coming to help me but that is not working out. They had the soldering iron and swr meter I needed to build them. So I am in need of someone with the equipment that would be willing to go with me to Lowe’s to get the rest of the parts needed to build these antennas and help me assemble them. I am in Gallatin at the corner of 109 and airport road. Anyone available to help? If so call or text me @ 615-812-0747

BSA Jamboree On The Air

 


Simplextons:
I received this today from Scoutmaster MIchael Wheaton. If you have individual interest, contact him now.  I expect that we can help in some regard as a "club" but we'd actually have to plan something. If anyone has any ideas, let everyone know.

Good Day,

Every year, on the third Saturday in October, the World Scouting organization promotes an amateur radio event called Jamboree on the Air.

 This weekend falls during the Middle Tennessee Council's event for Cub Scouts and their families at their Boxwell Scouting Reservation on October 16, 2021 in LaGuardo, TN.  

Here is what the World Scouting organization has to say about the event:  "Jamboree-on-the-Air, or JOTA, is the largest Scouting event in the world. It is held annually the third full weekend in October. JOTA uses amateur radio to link Scouts and hams around the world, around the nation, and in your own community. This jamboree requires no travel, other than to a nearby amateur radio operator’s ham shack. Many times you can find the hams will come to you by setting up a station at your Scout camporee, at the park down the block, or perhaps at a ham shack already set up at your council’s camp."

The reason I am sharing this with you is that we would like to invite your amateur radio club to come out and help promote the JOTA event by getting Scouts into amateur radio.  If you are willing and available to help out, please reach out to me at scoutermike63@... or by phone at 615-491-9540.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Michael Wheaton
Scoutmaster, Troop 320
