May 2016 Meeting -- All about diodes

   

Antenna Day at AG4QC -- 12/08/2014
Well, it was a bit cold, but a few club members got together to add a beam and TV antenna to AG4QC's tower.  Now Joe (AG4QC) has a beam to go along with his Off Center Fed HF dipole. Many thanks to Kevin - KU4RT and Dick - AJ4BZ  for all their hard work.  It just goes to show what a few dedicated club members can accomplish.  So what did you do today?



Field Day -- 2011
This is a small representation of all the activities that happened at our annual Field Day.  We had a great day of setting up emergency communications equipment and just general all around socialization.  The ARES bus made it's grand debut and added a lot to the ability of Chester County's emergency response readiness.  What a nice day!








Christmas Party Meeting  -- December 2010

This is our annual Christmas party.  It was well attended and some people brought their Pine Cone Christmas tree creations to decorate our tables. It was a very fun party and I look forward to next year!




PineCone Christmas Tree Meeting  -- November 2010

This is just an example of another fun meeting and club project.  Our November 2010 meeting we all built PineCone Christmas Trees.  These had blinking colored led's and we all have a lot of fun building them. Click HERE for a link to their construction.


 

Swap-Fest 2010

Another years swap fest is now behind us. This year we elected to have the swap-fest/tailgate event in the Chester County High School parking lot. While it was hot, we had a great time and even sold a few things.  We had a few visitors and spent most of the time just talking and enjoying the fellowship!
 


Field Day 2010 

 Yet another hot field day. But we had fun.  Officially, Field Day starts at 1:00 PM and our dinner bell rang at the same time.  So in true tradition, we went for the food.  It was a fun time. and Oh, yeah. There was a radio involved somewhere also!









 
 

Bar-B-Q Festival Special Event Station    09/26/2008 

Some of the FHUARC members set up a station during the Henderson, TN, Bar-B-Q festival. The city let us use the Gazebo right down town. The antenna used was a Hustler mobile antenna mounted on top of the tool box in a pick-up truck. It was about 50' from the Gazebo. It worked quite well. Contacts made were into Mich., Kans., Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Texas and, to everyone’s amazement, one station in Dublin, Ireland. Of course, we ate well, too. After all, it was during the Bar-B-Q festival. Ron came down with his remote unit and interviewed us live on WFHU 91.5. The weather was perfect. It turned out to be a great day.
