The Yankee Clipper Contest Club, one of the largest Ham Radio clubs in the Northeast, is proud to open it’s doors to the general Ham population of the area! We invite all hams to come and experience one of our meetings. We will be presenting special material, of interest to all hams who operate the HF bands, relating to design and construction of your ham radio station.
Our open house will be on Sunday, April 12, 2015 from 1:00 – 4:30pm at the Sturbridge Host Hotel, 366 Main Street, Sturbridge, MA 01566.
Presentations will include:
- “What’s the Best HF Transceiver for Me? -A Radio Selection Strategy” – by Brian Machesney, K1LI and others
- “Antenna Selection and Design- What’s Important” – by Joe Reisert, W1JR
YCCC is a club of over 350 members who are interested in Contesting. As such, we have developed a high level of expertise in station and antenna system design and HF transceiver selection, and would love to share this with the general ham community in the region. Whether you are just starting to put together your first station, or are well on your way, we’re certain you will pick up some great tips from these talks!
Please come and meet with our members, and hear some presentations that can have an immediate impact on the performance of your station!
We will also be selling raffle tickets to support the YCCC ARRL Youth Scholarship. Tickets will be sold for $25 per chance to win an Elecraft K3/100 Transceiver. We expect to hold the drawing at this meeting* – a lucky ham will go home with a new Elecraft K3/100 kit!
* Cash or checks accepted, no credit cards. YCCC reserves the right to delay the drawing until sufficient tickets have been sold to cover the prize and the donation.
