Station Activation, First Report
When you activate a station, what things do you need for your first report to the Net Control Station?

Advanced skills topic details:

Emergency Antennas
Presented by:  Steve/WA7PTM
When the disaster strikes, what if you are away from home and only have your handheld radio with you, or your handheld is the only one which survived the incident?  Could you quickly fashion an external antenna which would increase your communications range?  What if your HF antenna comes down in the emergency?  Could you quickly put together an effective replacement?  This presentation will give you some practical preparedness and response ideas.
Members are asked to bring any emergency antennas they have built themselves.
An ARRL Antenna Book, 23rd Edition, will be given away at the end of this talk.  Must be present to win.
