Basic Antenna fundamentals – Beams

We were treated to a very informative night by Mike MC Quire vk5zc with his talk on Antenna fundamentals.

Accompanied by a well presented handout, Mike proceeded through his talk, regarding how Antennas work, with several videos explaining the theory.

Mike also had on display several Beams or Yagi’s he has built, handing one of them around, so members can view his work.
