Update: On the Upcoming Project Build

Upcoming Project:  Magnetic Loop Antenna

CVARC’s next project build is scheduled for Saturday, November 10.  Adrian Jarrett-K6KY will assist CVARC members in building a Magnetic Loop Antenna.  The cost of the materials will be $110 or $175, depending on whether you’d like the 800V or the 1.5kV capacitor.

If you’d like to participate, please sign up next Thursday at the September CVARC meeting.   Payment will be due at that time so parts can be ordered.  If you wish to participate, but are unable to attend the September meeting, please email Christian Ylagan to sign up, and send your payment, payable to CVARC, to PO Box 2093, Thousand Oaks, CA 91358.  The deadline to sign up is September 30.
