Right after doing all the antenna/rotator/cable repairs on our fabulous tower we realized that – as a group – we’d never really experimented with near vertical incidence skywave propagation, NVIS. We thought it’d be great to have a dedicated setup for that, to better communicate with nearby states on HF, in case of a large scale disaster.
Amazingly, it turns out that some other people must have thought the same. And they kindly donated their time and equipment to help us accomplish the task. They gently lowered the large G5RV and Diamond HF vertical; and we didn’t even have to ask. Heck, we weren’t even there to supervise. Mind readers!
So stop by the club station one of these days and enjoy some NVIS. Thanks for the help, guys! 😉
The folks that did the work said it seamed like a good idea at the time.
