A day at “Antennas in the Park”

GOTAhams officers Mark Arlotti KM6AHY, Kathi Mixon KD6CAF and Ken Mixon KC6WOK spent the day in Fullerton with Fullerton ARC and HomingIn ARDF chasing some elusive electronic “foxes” with a newly constructed tape measure beam antenna. our hosts served lunch and were wonderful hosts and really great mentor/elmers showing us the basics of radio direction finding. Radio Orienteering as it is also known is lots of fun and should be on every Hams “Bucket List” if you get an opportunity. I definitely see some version of this being added to our GOTAhams field operations and another opportunity to get the Youngsters and non-Hams involved as this is a receive only radio-sport so no license is required.
