The next LRS meeting on 26th January 2022 at 20:00h will be a Zoom-only presentation by Malcolm Hamilton GM3TAL -  "Using a Vertical Dipole Antenna (VDA) on a Scottish beach, Part 2".

Malcolm will talk about using vertical dipole arrays from the shores of Loch Fyne. He operated in the CQWW CW contest in November 2014 (LRS talk 11 Feb 2015) and again in 2021 along with Nick Henwood G3RWF, with a different set of antennas. He will share his 2021 experiences and attempt to draw some conclusions about the best aerials to use in practice."

Zoom log-in info soon.
