The DVRA Antenna Committee was formed to focus on the design, construction and installation of amateur radio antennas for club members. The two goals of the antenna committee are to hold antenna construction events and to assist club members with antenna projects.

The next construction event will focus on elevated vertical antennas and will be held on Saturday, June 8th at 1pm at the DVRA’s club station. Construction and testing of a 20 meter vertical ground plane antenna will be performed. If time allows, a portable 20 meter fishing pole antenna will also be constructed.

The rain date will be on Sunday, June 9th at 1pm. Any postponement announcement will be made on the “W2ZQ Membership” Google Group forum.

Contact Greg Mauro at if you wish to be on the committee, if you need help with an antenna project, or if you have any questions, project ideas, etc.
