RSOC Antenna Work – Thanks for Donations!

A major upgrade to the RSOC antenna system is planned for this Saturday. It will include stripping a gang of old FCC leftover antennas from the tower mast, as well as a couple from the side of the tower, then installing a Comet GP-9 dual-band VHF/UHF antenna and an HF SteppIr Yagi on the mast.

To do this work safely requires us to use an aerial lift. Unfortunately, we don’t have direct access to one so are forced to rent a unit for $500 for the weekend. FORTUNATELY, those attending the club meeting tonight were extremely generous, and as an aggregate donated $385 cash toward the effort! The balance is being paid by additional club member donations.
Thank you club members and visitors for your generosity!
