MAC club participated in the successful Field Day event by operating from the emergency command center (EOC) at the Lincolnwood Fire & Police Dept for 24 continuous hours on June 23 & 24. We used the special event call sign W9O. Over 200 contacts were made by SSB and CW. We set up a HEX BEAM antenna on the roof. Thanks to everyone that stopped by to say hello and to the members that helped out.
"Understanding How Carrier Signals, Modulation and Demodulation Works In Our Transmitter/Receivers" was the presentation by Mike W9MJD during our June 12 meeting.
Members were treated to the popular "Up For Grabs" table were members can choose donated items.
During our May 2018 meeting we enjoyed a presentation by Henry K9KDE about an antenna in Sedona Arizona. "Is it an Eyesore or Enhanced Beauty". Henry thought it was beauty.
