Bay-Net Annual Antenna Shootout - September 30th, 2017

This event is a controlled experiment testing 4 different portable antenna setups followed by a general free-for-all of operating and antenna testing.  The location is the parking lot of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Saratoga.  

Setup starts late morning, followed by a technical briefing to explain the antenna measurement process,  followed by one hour of controlled measurements.  In the afternoon, members are free to try out other radio and antenna combinations.


The antennas planned for the shoot out include an Alex Loop magnetic loop, PackTenna inverted Vee, BuddiPole dipole, and a PackTenna random wire vertical.  We will use the WSPR protocol and remote monitoring stations to measure the performance of each antenna in a round-robin sequence which is computer controlled.

We hope you are able to join us as it will certainly be educational and a great reason to get together and share our hobby.

This event is open to everyone.  Bring a chair, hat, and water for your comfort.  Feel free to bring your own radios and antennas or just bring yourself !
