8AM - 8:50 AM
  Bob Brehm, AK6R    

Topic: "End Fed Antenna Secrets for portable, and stealth installations"

Learn how to select, choose and setup an end fed antenna system that works on multiple bands, is stealthy and radiates well at low heights. Find out the secrets of antenna matching, reducing RFI and minimizing noise present on many end fed antennas. Example installations and antenna dimensions will be shown for 160-6 meter operations.

Bob Brehm, AK6R is Chief Engineer of Palomar Engineers (Palomar-Engineers.com), and has been a ham for over 50 years with experience in contesting, RTTY, amplitude modulation, vintage radio restoration, boat anchors, linear amps and unique antennas. He is active on 3.870 AM and 3.895 Vintage SSB as well as other nets offering his expertise to new and old hams alike.

Bob is often asked to speak at conventions and radio club meetings about RFI, antenna matching, using baluns/ununs, stealth antennas, amplitude modulation, RTTY/digital modes, ESSB, ham radio on boats, and a variety of other subjects.

12PM - 12:50 PM
Convair/220 Club    
 

Topic: "Fun and adventures with kite supported antenna"

Learn how antennas carried by kites can provide world class performance for QRP outings. DXing, Contesting, Field Day and Special Events as well as an afternoon of exceptional ham radio fun. A variety of antennas and kites will be shown and tips will be provided that will assure a successful kite-antenna experience.

Projects during Bob’s 40 year technical career have included a laser cannon carrying drone that can fly for a week at an altitude of 100,000 feet, the first electric LeMons race car and the world’s largest laser which is large enough to simulate a nuclear event.
Bob Anderson (W6SDO) has been a ham since 1953. He has enjoyed building a 500 watt mobile rig, a 100 watt all band bicycle mobile and antennas for his city lot that cover all of the bands from UHF to 160 meters. He has now combined his ham radio interests with kite flying.
