Ed Fong Antenna order
Last month the club was extremely fortunate enough to receive a presentation from Ed Fong on his antennas and just antenna design in general. For many of us it was very insightful and for others it re-enforced what they've been practicing. I know I gleaned a lot of great information from the presentation.
Ed has several different versions and those can be viewed at: https://edsantennas.weebly.com so please look at his page, then open this spreadsheet and place your order. The spreadsheet will be open for orders until close of business, 5pm, May 13th. Post closure, we will collect money to send in the order to Ed. Please attend the monthly meeting to pay by check or cash. If necessary other arrangements can be made for payment.
