Program: Military Pack Sets, Part II
by Joe Munson, WA4VAG
Military pack sets are quite valuable for portable and emergency communications. Erecting expedient antennas in these situations is a very practical skill to master. Joe will bring various pack sets and antennas and demonstrate their use in this hands-on program. The principles he'll discuss can be applied to not only QRP use but also to restricted ham operations such as on HOA sites, small lots, etc.
A huge shout out to Jay Adrick, K8CJY, for a great overview of past, present, and future broadcast TV channel allocations, and how the broadcast industry is dealing with the current UHF spectrum repacking and channel reallocation. Most Cincinnati TV station frequencies will change on Oct. 18.
