 Forum Topic – “Dean, KK4DAS provides an update on the Maker Team and their current project of building a simple SSB transceiver.  The current project is a group build of his Furlough 40 QRP transceiver project.   Inspired by Pete, N6QW SimpleSSB Transceiver, this is a 100% scratch-built 40 meter SSB QRP rig for phone and digital.   Twenty VWS members are building the rig which uses readily available components and only 10 transistors and an Arduino driven SI-5351 clock module.  The Maker Team meets regularly, via Zoom, to build a segment of their project, exchange ideas, and provide tips on building and making various amateur radio items.   You can follow the group progress on the project build page here.  Time: 7:00-7:30 pm

 Main Program --  “Portable Antennas”  Leon, NT8B will provide an overview of his recent experience building antennas intended for use in portable HF operations such as Parks on the Air (POTA), Summits on the Air (SOTA) and the special event station he and Mike Magnotti, KD4MM, ran from Cobb Island last December.   Although the focus of the presentation will be on easy to build/easy to set up homebrew antennas he’ll provide a high-level review of several commercially available alternatives.    Time:  7:30-9:00 pm
