Club Meeting - April 2010
Date: April 10, 2010
Time: 10 AM
Location: Cache County Sheriff's complex 3rd floor, 1225 W 200 N, Logan
The Bridgerland Amateur Radio Club (BARC) meeting topic will be “Amateur Microwave”.
Have you operated the high frequencies? We mean the really high frequencies, like up above 1000 MHz. If not, the BARC meeting on April 10th may be a chance to find out what it’s like. We will have a presentation on microwave by a local microwave group from the Salt Lake area (More about the group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/utahmicrowave/ ). Learn about mountaintop expeditions to set new distance records, making an antenna with 40 dB of gain or more, and communicating on a light beam. What bands are available? What does it cost to get started? How hard is it to build your own equipment? What does it take to compete in the Microwave contests? The groups will be answering these types of questions and showing of the commercial and home built gear.
Be sure to attend our April club meeting to learn more about operating in the microwave frequency range.
See you there.
