MTARA Meeting Friday April 20, 2018
Presentation will be by Dale P Clement AF1T well known for his theory and modeling of all sorts of antennas. We will be sticking to dipoles and variations of dipoles modeled at 432 megahertz. Dale will be doing hands-on modeling of his many antennas. This demonstration is done in such a way that you can actually see the radiation patterns. Don’t miss this meeting it is one-of-a-kind and very informative for both advanced and not so advanced amateur radio operators.

The ARISS project that has been endorsed and supported by our Club and has come to a very important crossroad.
Congratulations to Pathfinder advancing with 13 of the 25 schools and organizations to Phase 2 in the ARISS-US [Amateur Radio on the International Space Station] TEAM competition! Schools and organizations are competing for the opportunity to communicate, using amateur radio, with astronauts living and working on the International Space Station.
In Phase 2 of this competition, all 13 finalists, including Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School, will submit an amateur radio equipment plan to demonstrate the capability to execute ham radio contact with the International Space Station. An ARISS technical team will make final selections. Finalists will be scheduled to communicate with the International Space Station during the 2nd half of 2018.
