November Monthly Breakfast Cancelled 

In response to the latest Covid-19 news, the ARA determined that it was prudent to cancel the traditional monthly breakfast.

December's breakfast fate has not yet been determined.

Field Day Antenna Placement and Config

Nelson.jpg

Nelson, KA2C, one of the Directors of the ARA, took a lot of time and effort in testing antenna placement, and multiple antenna configurations in order to make this coming Field Day one of the most spectacular in memory. Then, Covid-16 (a novel coronavirus) struck the world! ARRL will still be holding Field Day, but it really depends on quite a few things as to how the Antietam Radio Association will hold their Field Day 2020. In the mean time, Nelson was kind enough to send all of his articles for inclusion on the ARA website.  I currently have links that will open the files in a new tab/window, which you can choose to download onto your hard drive for offline viewing. As time permits, I plan on emedding those files into the website, as well as having them as one ZIP file for direct download.
