Youth Net to become a regular event | Southgate Amateur Radio News

The SARL Youth Net on Sunday 6 July at 15:00 was well supported.


An experimental Youth Net sponsored by the South African Amateur Radio League (SARL) was such a success on Sunday, 06 July, that a regular net will become a regular event for amateur radio clubs in South Africa.  The next session is set for Sunday, 03 August 2014, 1500 hours (local time) on 7070 kHz.  The objective of the Youth Net is “to bring young people together.”  Sounds like a great idea.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).

The South African Radio League (SARL) has activated call sign ZS9HQ for the IARU HF Championships this weekend (12-13 July 2014).  The station will operate from the National Radio Centre during the international event.  SARL President Geoff Levey (ZS6C) needs South African hams to run the station during the contest.  You can reach Geoff at:  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

Here’s another experiment from my Antenna Topics Blog.  Dean Manley (KH6B) gave me a fascinating article from “Amateur Radio”, May, 1993,  which describes a ground mounted antenna used in Australia and South Africa.  The antenna works very well and is nearly invisible to neighbors and HOA committees.  This antenna would make an excellent stealth antenna.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
