The Palomino GMRS Twin Delta Loop

The Frederick Amateur Radio Clubs very own Sandy KB3EOF and Steve KC3MAU have designed and built Delta Loop antenna for GMRS.  You can build one too…  The video below walks through how it was designed and how to assemble it as well as how it performs.  Be sure to like the video and give it a thumbs up!

Foxhunt, Saturday October 23rd at Baker Park

FARC will be having a foxhunt on Saturday October 23rd at 1pm at Baker Park in downtown Frederick.  This event is open to everyone, the more people the more fun it is.  Bring your friends, family and the dog.  The cool thing about a foxhunt is that you do not need to be licensed to participate because you are only receiving.

We will be meeting at the Bandshell in Baker Park at 1 to start the hunt.  Here is a link on Google Maps for the location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Baker+Park+Bandshell/@39.4162031,-77.4174838,805m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x89c9da5704638f99:0x61975dbf47d875f!8m2!3d39.416199!4d-77.4152898

If we can get enough people we will setup teams and make a friendly competition out of it.  After the hunt is done, everyone is welcome to meet for lunch/dinner for some fun radio discussion.

Since I will be the one hiding the foxes, I will have some equipment that can be used if you do not have gear and want to try them out.

Here are some google map screen caps of where we will meet.  There is plenty of parking along the streets in this area.

Monthly Meeting

Out of an abundance of caution we are going to return to Zoom meetings for our monthly club meetings. With the recent rise in numbers I think this is the best thing to do. Hopefully, we can go back to in person meetings soon. Thank you for understanding.

We are moving back to In-Person meetings

We have some GREAT NEWS….

Starting on Monday July 19th, we will be returning to in person meetings at our normal location and time.  For those that have joined us since the pandemic started, we meet at Independent Hose Company number 1 in the events hall at the back.  The Address is 301 Baughmans Lane, Frederick, MD.  The meeting starts at 7pm.  You see a map and directions on our about page here: http://frederickarc.org/about/

We have not been able to meet since last February, it will be great to be able to meeting in person once again instead of over Zoom.  Zoom was great, but it is not the same as meeting in person.  I look forward to seeing everyone in person.

Sorry for the animated GIF.  Just thought it represented the occasion well.
