Previous antenna projects have included J-Poles, Super J-Poles, Dipoles and Tiger Tails. Have a particular antenna you want to build? Talk with Mike Poole (KE6ZYK) or Fred Wagner (AD6FC) and see if we can add it to Project Night.

Around the County

  • CERT Classes Began Feb 6, 2014 The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Early Radio Industry Development (1897-1914)

As with most innovations, radio began with a series of incremental scientific discoveries and technical refinements, which eventually led to the development of commercial applications. But profits were slow in coming, and for many years the largest U.S. radio firms were better known for their fraudulent stock selling practices than for their financial viability.
