Hamfest – Hidden Valley, IN, 4/11/2015 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
On April 11th 2015, in conjunction with the Hidden Valley Garage Sale Day, the Laughery Valley Amateur Radio Club will be having a Hamfest (a garage sale of amateur radio equipment and related accessories) in the Pool Parking lot on Lakeview.
Check out the “Economy End Fed Matchbox” on EBay, and tell a friend.  Club member Ken, W4KGH, who is constructing and selling these, has generously volunteered to share the profit with the club.  Loads of info about end fed antennas may be found at DX Zone.  Also, a wire length/SWR table provided by Balun Designs suggests wire lengths for multiband, end fed antennas.
