Dayton Antenna and Contest Forum Presentations On-line

Just announced on one of the reflectors I subscribe to, the Dayton Antenna and Contest Forums are now on-line.

Antenna Forum

The Dayton Antenna Forum has three presentations. The first is Real World Antenna Patterns vs. Theoretical Computer Antenna Plots by Mike Wetzel, W9RE, and Tom Chance, K9XV.

The second is A New Approach for Measuring Complex Antenna Currents in a Vertical Array by Greg Ordy, W8WWV (love THAT call…).

And the third is Multi-element Lowband Vertical Arrays – Approaches for Small Lots by Ted Rappaport, N9NB, and Ray Sokola, K9RS.

Nice to see those Midwestern calls!

The contest forum offers six presentations.

The first is, of course, the 2008 Dayton Contest Forum Introduction by Doug Grant, K1DG.

The second is Passing the NCJ Torch by Carl Luetzelschwab, K9LZ, and Alan Dewey, K0AD. (Doing nice job as well).

The third is When Giants Walked the Bands – The Early Days of Multi-Multi by Doug Zwiebel, KR2Q.

The fourth is SDR and Contesting – The Future is Now by Pete Smith, N4ZR.

The fifth is Beamforming on 160 Meters by Victor Kean, K1LT.

Finally, Contesting with 28 Miles of Feedline by my former neighbor John Battin, K9DX
