Club Meeting Features Antennas



Nothing works in communications without an antenna, your cordless phone, even your cellphone have internal antennas that reach their target. Without antennas their signal would go nowhere.

So it is with ham or amateur radio. Hams need antennas to reach their target as well. There are literally thousands of choices and that's the subject of the next meeting of the Cedar Creek Amateur Radio Club. There the virtues of the end-fed antenna will be illustrated. You only need one support to hold it up. Most wire antennas require at least two support points. The antenna can also be shorter and lighter than many other types.

The meeting to be held on Saturday, March 10th will also feature technical reports and great fellowship. It will be an interesting meeting and it is open to the public. It starts at 9 A.M. at the Mabank Café on Hwy 198 in Mabank.

The club meets the second Saturday of each month there. The meeting starts at 9 A.M., but many come early for the breakfast buffet. Anyone interested in technology is welcome.

The Cedar Creek ARC has over forty members from the tri-county area. It maintains a VHF and UHF repeater system that provide hand-held radio coverage to hams in the lake area, and mobile and base coverage throughout the three counties. CCARC participates in the National Weather Service SKYWARN program and the Amateur Radio Emergency Service. The club also provides classes to those wishing to join the ranks of Amateur "ham" Radio. There no longer is a requirement or test for Morse code. For more information visit
