The August 2020 Volusia ARES® meeting will be held on Saturday August 8, 2020 at 9:00 AM at the DeLand, Florida Elks Lodge, which is located at 614 S Alabama Ave, DeLand, FL 32724.
Activity – NVIS HF Set-up and Operations
Talk in will be the 147.240 T123 repeater.
Remember to bring your ICS-214 forms. We will help you complete the forms for ARES activities during the month of July.
Bring your ARES® Task Books – the HF activity will give participants the opportunity to complete some of the tasks in their task books. We will have a brief meeting inside the Elks Lodge and will then move outside to set-up three different antennas for NVIS HF operations. We will be trying 75m and 40m dipoles and an Alpha FMJ antenna. If you have an HF go box and want to try it out on the air, this is the time to bring it!
Other amateurs and possibly ARES groups from around Volusia County and the state will be joining us on the air to see how well we can communicate within the county and state using HF. We plan to be on the air by 11:30 AM EDT.
