Preparations for September VHF Contest

Posted By: W3DIO

We are beginning the preparations for the next big contest. We have some problems with SWR on 1296 on the high power amp. Fortunately we were able to limp along and the problem didn’t prevent us from making any attempted contacts but we need to resolve it so it stops tripping the SWR bypass in the amp. We also have a few amplifier projects that we should try to get atleast 1 of them in before September. There is also some scheduled maintenance that we keep putting off on the mast/rotor that we should probably do but I have a feeling it will end up having to be post contest work.
